Businesses affected by Telstra outage

BUSINESSES were left stranded when Telstra had another outage this month affecting 4G, 3G and SMS services.

Owner of the Mundubbera Newsagency Robyn Maeyke said it was simply an inconvenience.

"It's just inconvenient, I've had to use the computer to lodge a few things but I haven't been able to due to this outage,” Mrs Maeyke said.

"The Eftpos machines are run on both Telstra and Optus so we do have a back-up if needed.”

Mrs Maeyke said the outage didn't affect her business but said a lot of businesses in the area would've suffered.

According to the Telstra twitter account, the problem was fixed at 3:30pm.

"Mobile voice and data services have returned to normal levels,” the twitter account said.

"We'll closely monitor network stability and performance and continue supporting our customers to restore their services.

"We're again deeply sorry for any disruption as we know how customers rely on our mobile coverage.”

Telstra are currently investigating how the outage began.
