The outage began in the early hours of Friday morning and lasted longer than 15 hours, Most of the services have now been restored. Stafieri wrote in a message to its customers that services had been restored and the network was “almost fully operational” again from Saturday afternoon.
The device causing the error was disconnected from the network and traffic was re-routed so that services and networks gradually reappeared on the network. Rogers also apologized for the “inconvenience” caused by the failure.
