Telstra outage in North West
A transmission failure has led to a Telstra outage across the Kimberley and Pilbara.
In a statement this morning, Telstra regional manager Boyd Brown said the company was investigating the cause of the service disruption that had impacted mobile and landline services from Port Hedland to Kununurra.
He said the failure had affected both 3G and 4G mobile networks in the areas, as well as landline and broadband services.
“At this stage we suspect the cable has been damaged and we are in the process of despatching technicians to the site to determine exactly what needs to be done,” he said.
“We apologise for the inconvenience and endeavour to get services back up and running as fast as we can.”
