People have taken to social media complaining that the 2degrees mobile network appears to be down.
Is the @2degreesmobile service down in Auckland? None of my text messages are going through?— Will Flavell (@willuxflavell) July 29, 2016
Hey @2degreesmobile - what's going on with your network. Can't text. Can't call. But I'm not the only one. Plz update :)— Cassie Rowe (@CassieDeeMo) July 29, 2016
Many people throughout the country say they can't send or receive text messages or make phone calls.
The telco confirmed it was experiencing issues with calls, texts and its website, and that the problem with its network was nationwide.
We are currently experiencing nationwide issues with calls and texts. Out teams are working on it at the highest priority.— 2degrees (@2degreesmobile) July 29, 2016
We're very sorry for the inconvenience caused by this outage. Calls, SMS & our website are currently down. No ETR at this stage.— 2degrees (@2degreesmobile) July 29, 2016
