• It's Not Just You: Canadian Carriers Suffered a Major Outage Yesterday

    If you were having trouble making or receiving phone calls around dinnertime yesterday you're not alone; multiple sources are confirming a significant outage across almost all of this country's wireless providers—including Freedom Mobile. Regional carriers like MTS, SaskTel and Vidéotron seem to have been unaffected.

    The trouble started around 5pm Eastern Time and lasted until after midnight. Here's what it looked like according to Down Detector:









    As of this morning the issues seem largely resolved. I myself found out about the outage from the emergency vet clinic where my cat is currently being treated; staff there call clients with twice-daily updates about their pets, and the person I talked to said she was having a lot of trouble reaching people on the Rogers network.

    Hopefully no one reading this was inconvenienced too much by yesterday's incidents.

    Nice ride on the Strasburg Railroad! I wouldn’t want to discourage them from building towers, but I see your point that the silo blends in a whole lot better.
