An iiNet data centre in Western Australia lost power this morning, causing service outages across the state.
The outage began at about 11.00am AEST with widespread reports of problems across the iiNet network, including to the state’s broadband services as well as iiNet-provided voice services.
Power was restored to the site after 30 minutes.
But the company said users were still likely to be impacted by flow-on effects from the data centre failure.
Customers across the state were continuing to complain about lack of service at the time of publication.
Restoration works continued deep into Wednesday afternoon.
The company said the outage had damaged some of its networking hardware.
There was no word from the company on the cause of the power loss, nor which of the internet provider’s two main facilities were impacted.
