iiNet Group reference ID: 5711101

As previously notified on 7th of March 2018 the iiNet Group (iiNet Ltd, Westnet Pty Ltd, Internode Pty Ltd, TransACT Capital Communications Pty Ltd and Adam Internet Pty Ltd) is currently working to manage the impact to its network that has occurred as a result of severe weather in the Herbert and Lower Burdekin District of Queensland on or about Friday 23 February 2018 through Saturday 24 February 2018 and again on Wednesday 28 February 2018 through Thursday 1 March 2018.

Severe weather events have caused notable damage to the network, rendering some services faulty, as referred to in Telstra Wholesales Mass Service Disruption Notification which can be found https://www.telstra.com.au/consumer-advice/customer-service/mass-service-disruption/. A copy of this notice will also be published in the Brisbane Courier Mail on 26/03/2018

The iiNet Group is working closely with suppliers and wholesalers to assess and repair the damage to affected services in a timely manner. Customers in these regions may experience service disruptions and delays to normal connection times and fault restoration. The impact in the affected region has been greater than initially estimated and as a consequence of severe weather events, the expected date for resumption of normal service operations has been extended to 8th April 2018.

As these circumstances are outside the iiNet Group’s control, iiNet is claiming an exemption under Section 21 of the Telecommunications (Customer Service Guarantee) Standard 2011 from the normal performance standards. The exemption shall apply from 28 February 2018 to 8 April 2018 inclusive. This date is indicative only; customers should anticipate that some further delays may occur.
