Kingston SE, SA down

Post by brumer » Sat Mar 14, 2015 10:35 am

Optus apparently are 'updating' the antenna at Kingston SE, SA and therefore no 3G phone or Internet.
Been out for a couple of days.
Any advice about likely return of services?
I spoke to one of the workers onsite but he couldn't tell me anything.
It looked like it was on last night but was 2G and no data flowed.
Maybe changed the APN?

Hi,

Kindly note that there are unplanned outages effecting 'WA - Carnarvon ' and 'NSW - Grafton Area'. Unfortunately we don't have an ETR for both outages.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Regards,
Saad Bafik

Hope they soon sort things out.
Painfully expensive using Telstra ............
The phone is trying to work but the Internet reports 2G and just won't connect at all.
I suspect the phone is connecting through the Mount Benson transmitter some distance away.

The above mentioned service outages are still ongoing.

You may PM me your mobile service number to further have a look.

Any news on this outage?
I think Exetel is entitled to claim compensation for this "improvement" that has not been advised?
6 or 7 vehicles, a huge travel tower that reaches to the top of the town water supply tower just can't be described as a breakdown?
I have several customers that I talked into joining Exetel 3G Internet service & I'm trying to pacify them.
I'm lucky I have Telstra dongle as well!!!
