Network outage hits mobile eftpos

9:56 am on 10 August 2013

An outage on one of Vodafone's data networks disrupted mobile eftpos services and payment via text for parking throughout the lower North Island.

A company spokesperson said the 2G data network break just after 3am on Friday was caused by a software problem that is being investigated.

The company said mobile broadband and cellphone services were unaffected and the 2G service had been restored.
