Telstra services go down again

Telstra has apologised to customers after another major outage - the third in two months - left customers venting their anger on social media.

A spokesman for the company said Telstra would be "redoubling our efforts on resilience in the network and part of that is conducting a major review in relation to the outages from last week and February."

"The disruption today, which impacted less than 3 per cent of our mobile customers, was caused by a card failure in a media gateway in Victoria which meant certain calls could temporarily not get through," he said.
