As previously notified on 19 December 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 on or about
Thursday 13 December 2018 through to Saturday 15 December 2018 in the North East District and parts of the North Central and Northern Country Districts of Victoria, and parts of the Riverina District of New South Wales
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 Melbourne Herald Sun and Sydney Daily Telegraph on 15 January 2019.
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 <the ongoing/continued weather effects/other reason>, the expected date for resumption of normal service operations has been extended to 28 January 2019

The exemption shall apply from 14/12/2018 to 28/01/2019 inclusive. This date is indicative only; customers should anticipate that some further delays may occur.
