Telstra in a tangle over more Hobsons Bay outages

Willy and Hobby investigators were on site at Maddox Road in Newport today, where works have begun to restore services to Telstra customers that have once again been left without fixed line phone and internet services.

Multiple Telstra vans and cars arrived to setup camp at two locations on Maddox Road in Newport, where technicians have begun work on affected lines.

Telstra recently apologised to Newport residents and businesses who had a disconnected Christmas, citing delays due to a large number of faults across Victoria caused by the storms and extreme weather earlier in December.

There hasn’t been any storms of late, which has had customers starting to question the telco’s twisted story, due to the large amount of customers affected in multiple outages across Hobsons Bay over the last few months.

Willy and Hobby was also contacted by customers in Altona on Wednesday night, who are also reporting issues with their services, however the telco declined to comment on just how widespread the problems are, citing only customers currently affected in Newport.

“There is a fault affecting internet and fixed line services for up to 109 customers in the Newport area. We had technicians there yesterday, who are back there today repairing it,” a Telstra spokesman said.
