#CyberFLASH: Canada – Rogers Wireless suffering countrywide outages


Customers of Rogers Wireless are experiencing widespread outages of the company’s voice cellphone service, with no indications of when the disruption will be fixed.

The countrywide problems are also plaguing Rogers’s Fido and Chatr wireless brands.

The company first confirmed on its Twitter feed at 6:40 p.m. ET that it was experiencing “voice service interruptions affecting wireless customers in Ontario & Quebec,” but later updated to say the outages are across Canada.

Posters on Twitter from Halifax to Vancouver say they have no voice service, and many are also reporting issues with text messages, or SMS.

An email to CBC News from a Rogers spokeswoman said the company doesn’t yet know when service will be restored.

“We don’t yet have an estimate on when it will be resolved, but we’re working to restore service as quickly as possible,” wrote Jennifer Kett, senior manager of media relations.
