Over 10 Million Australia Went Offline After Optus Hit by Technical Network Failure

Due to a large-scale technical glitch, the lives of more than 10 million (1 crore) Australians were cut off from the digital world for several hours. The reason for this was a major problem in the network of Optus, the country's second largest telecom company. The outage was reportedly first reported at 4 a.m. local time, affecting 40% of the population. Due to this, people were deprived of services like internet, phone connectivity and even systems like payment, transport and health etc. were significantly affected.

Optus reported the problem via social media and assured people that the network had been restored, after which almost all services gradually came back online. The company also asked affected customers to restart their devices and provided troubleshooting steps for those who were experiencing connectivity issues even after the company fixed the main issue.

The outage was first reported at 4 a.m. local time on Tuesday, ABC reports.

At the same time, Optus, putting an end to people's fears, also said that the cause of the outage was not a cyber attack, but due to a “technical network fault”.

Due to this problem, the smartphones and broadband connections of the users came to a standstill. This outage, which continued for a significant part of the day, had almost completely cut people off from the digital world.
