    Someone with the msm changed the article from the link provided ... now it says ... "warned" ...

    Eftpos out after Telstra breakdown
    A NATIONWIDE Telstra outage has been resolved after it affected numerous Eftpos machines and ATMs, with shoppers being warned to ‘carry cash’.


    "A NATIONWIDE Telstra outage has been resolved after it affected numerous Eftpos machines and ATMs.

    The outage, which began on Friday, affected businesses in numerous states on Saturday morning, including a number of taxi companies, a Telstra spokesman said.

    “Our team worked through the night on the fix and we are seeing the machine-to- machine traffic returning to normal,” the spokesman said in a statement just after 12.30pm on Saturday.

    “All devices should now be capable of connecting.”

    During the outage people had been advised to carry cash instead of relying on tap-and-go payments.

    A Telstra spokesman said the outage was fully restored shortly after midday, and blamed a technical issue with a third-party provider for the connection failures.

    “The issue in a vendor’s network resulted in intermittent authentication of devices which prevented some of them connecting to the network,” he said.

    “A small number of devices may require a restart to reconnect and we are working this through with our customers. We sincerely apologise to customers for the impact it had through yesterday and overnight.”

    The outage came days after an issue affected access to some Telstra apps and the company’s website, including cloud services."

    Did anyone notice? I presume this only effected tiny portion of atm/eftpos, using pstn

    The Average and Smart operators/owners would have moved over to IP and or have backups.

    I only encounter one store that was effected by it. They seems to be those small popup style places in shopping centers.

    Anyway always handy to keep about $50 in the wallet.

    You cash prepper you!

    I always keep an assortment of denominations in the wallet, super handy. And if I'm going away anywhere I always carry a lot more. Enough to get me out of trouble and back home if the system goes down. Your car isn't going to help you get 1000km back home if the system is down and you have no cash.

    Sure it will. If SHTF i can use my silver to get fuel. All i have to do is ask the fuel attendant for a packet of cigarettes, then when his back is turned i whack him over the head with my emergency 1kg bar.
