So if you live in New Zealand, anywhere south of Taupo and you have a Telecom mobile phone, you may have noticed that it's been strangely quiet this morning. Well this isn't because no one cares, but because the whole XT network is down.
Telecom have released a statement and here's the part I love :
'Telecom said via Twitter that a severe fault had resulted in the outage.'
Hmmm, call me crazy but is that just a euphenism for 'We have no fucking idea what the problem is and, until we do, we're clueless as to how to fix it.'
All I know is that there are people out there who will be having a hell of a worse Monday morning than me. Especially a handful of Telecom employees.
