No Optus: telco hit by mobile outage once again Featured

Optus mobile customers were hit by an outage from early Friday morning, with the telco saying that the issue had been fixed within a couple of hours.

As is usual, customers took to social media to vent their frustrations on the telco which last suffered an outage in the last week of June.

That outage was limited to services in Victoria and was due to a minor network fault.

Optus said Friday's outage did not affect data use, but only voice communications and was due to a hardware failure.

"The issue impacting some customers on our mobile network has now been resolved," it said.

"Please turn your phone off and on again. We appreciate your patience and apologise for the inconvenience."
