Telecommunications service provider Optus has issued a statement confirming its Blackberry data services was down for most of the day on 6 November.

A spokesperson for Optus said its customers experienced disruption to their BlackBerry data services, but technicians were able to resolve the issue and progressively restore customers to normal service from approximately 1pm.

In the statement, Optus apologised “for any inconvenience caused to its customers by this disruption,” however no other details were given about the outage.

This isn’t the first time BlackBerry users have experienced downtime. Back in April most BlackBerry users in the Western Hemisphere found that the push e-mail service had recovered from the outage that began on the 18 April and continued for almost 24 hours.
