Optus experiencing 'major outages'
Morning folks, Maddy here. It's a quiet start from me this morning and unfortunately sounds like it might be for some of you as well.
Some Optus customers have been experiencing 'technical difficulties' this morning with the telecommunications network dealing with connection issues.
"We are currently experiencing a major outage," the business stated on its website.
"Your voice service may be interrupted. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to you during this time."
While Bendigo remains unaffected by outages in the area - with the problem tower in question located in the Melbourne area - Optus has stated you may experience problems if you're trying to communicate with someone in that area.
Currently, the telecommunications business is conducting works in Castlemaine and Buloke areas to "improve your Optus network experience".
These works are expected to be completed at 7pm tonight in Castlemaine and 7pm on April 8 in Buloke.
