iiNet Group reference ID: 7832278
The iiNet Group (iiNet Ltd, Westnet Pty Ltd, Internode 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 Friday 1 July 2022 through to Tuesday 5 July 2022 in the Sydney Metropolitan District and parts of the Illawarra, Central Tablelands and Hunter Districts of New South Wales.
Services are impacted in the area bounded by and including, but not limited to, the area starting at the Barrenjoey Lighthouse following the coastline south past Sydney and Cronulla to Wattamolla Beach then west to Waterfall. The area turns southwest to Budderoo, west to Merlya, southwest to Tallong, and northwest to Wombeyan Caves then northeast to Nattai. From Nattai the area heads north to Lawson, northeast to Yarramundi, west to Box Hill, northeast past Glenorie to Doughboy Beach then southeast back to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse. All suburbs and towns, including Metropolitan Sydney, off shore islands and coastal areas serviced by Telstra within these boundaries are encompassed.
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 at https://www.telstra.com.au/consumer-advice/customer-service/mass-service-disruption/. A copy of that notice will also be published in the Sydney Daily Telegraph on 11 July 2022.
