Vodafone, Optus Outages Yesterday

Vodafone and Optus customers are back online today after country-wide outages left them unable to make calls, send text messages or use data for hours on Thursday. 

I was hit by the great VodaOptApocalypse of 2014. It made for a very boring lunch break.

In response, Josh Taylor at ZDNet writes that Vodafone customers will receive a weekend of free data.

“We know our customers had a less than perfect network experience today and we want them to know we’re sorry,” Hanssen said.

“Over the past three years our network team has worked tirelessly to ensure our customers have fast and reliable mobile coverage. To apologise we want them to enjoy unlimited data access all weekend. ”

Nice one, Voda. (Anthony, don’t abuse this).
