(Toronto) Rogers Communications was hit by a widespread network outage that left many customers without mobile and internet service Friday morning.
Toronto police said Rogers’ network is experiencing technical difficulties and some people may experience connection issues if they call 911.
Ottawa police have also warned of possible problems when calling 911.
“If your call fails, please try again or call from another carrier’s landline or cell phone,” the police force wrote on Twitter.
CBC Radio, in Kitchener and Waterloo, reported that the outage affected its programming on Friday morning.
“We are experiencing an internet outage,” CBC said.
“The listeners of Morning Edition will hear Metro Morning today. We will meet you as soon as possible. »
According to Downdetector, a website that monitors outages, around 20,000 issues were reported on Friday. Customers complained online about not being able to access internet services.
Rogers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Last year, the company suffered a massive outage caused by a software update that left customers without service.
