inside whole north emergency internet offer

Internet down in the whole north - emergency offer inside
#1
This morning I was awakened by my frantic wife who couldn't join an important meeting. The internet wasn't working.
After going up the road to the local Movistar point I could see that it wasn't just me.

I called a few contacts, many people are offline.

First action: Go and Get Cash
Most card machines and cash machines use the most common local internet provider to do all their processing. If the internet is down so are they.

I went to Corralejo and almost all cash machines were out of service - except Santander.

On the way home I discovered that Mercadona can only accept card payments from certain banks(one of their providers (caxia I think) is online and thus can process some cards).

I managed to set up my backup internet system, and installed all kits at clients sites.

My Movistar Contact confirmes the internet is down in the whole north, and a fix is still being worked on with no ETA.

If anyone has an urgent need for internet, send me a PM and you are welcome to drop by. Please bring your own tea bags.

I will update this thread when I get an ETA on a fix, but I would expect minimum tomorrow, maximum 2 days.

There is a temporary fix in process, connections should start to come back up over the next hour or so.
Let's see if it will be stable!

Thanks for the update McAdam. Is this happening due to the Weather conditions or something unrelated?

As far as I know it is unrelated. Had it been due to the Weather we would have been without internet on saturday.

I've had internet all day since 7.45am so it didn't affect the whole island.

Have internet and landline from Movistar in Cotillo but mobile coverage has been on and off all day and a very weak signal (1 bar of 5 only) when working.

You are in Caleta - correct?
It only affected the North (as writen in the title), confirmed in Corralejo, Lajares, La Oliva

Tom.

Interesting!
Seems like Cotillo had its own issues but different from the rest.
Should all be up and running now
