Millions of Australians have been left with no phone or internet service after a massive telecom failure brought down services including Telstra, iiNet and TPG on Wednesday night.
Sydney suburbs including Mascot, Ultimo, Hornsby, Gladesville, Rouse Hill and Baulkham Hills are said to have been among the worst affected.
Furious users took to social media to complain about the unexpected outage.
‘If only you fixed issues as quickly as you respond to social outrage,’ said one.
Melbourne mobile phone users were also reported having issues.
‘Hey @Telstra, I’m located in south Melbourne 3205 and am barely running in 3G atm what’s the deal,’ tweeted one user.
