Oct 20 (Reuters) – Canada’s Rogers Communications Inc said on Thursday its wireline services have been restored after a brief disruption it blamed on a fibre cut caused by a third party.
“Our team completed repairs overnight and wireline services are back online for all impacted customers in Bradford and surrounding areas,” tweeted Rogers.
This comes as the Canadian telecom giant, which is in its last leg of a C$20 billion ($15.6 billion) merger with rival Shaw Communications, faced a massive outage on July 8 that paralyzed the country’s banking and emergency services for nearly 19 hours. The company had blamed on a router malfunction after maintenance work.
Canadian government in July also ordered a probe and demanded telecoms companies agree within 60 days to develop communication protocols to keep people better informed, after Rogers suffered the unprecedented outage. (Reporting by Tiyashi Datta in Bengaluru; Editing by Sherry Jacob-Phillips)
