If that is true, somebody very senior needs to be publicly marched out of the building by security this morning.

If it's just a lame excuse, that's little better and whoever thought that would fly needs to be fired.

Telstra only thinks "redundancy" relates to people...

The ARTC network uses Telstra for communications of train data.  It is plausible Vicrfeak may have stitched up a similar deal?

I'm glad Air Traffic Control doesn't use it.

The Report on the Rushall derailment, see https://www.railpage.com.au/f-t11397623.htm , indicated that the train driver was only able to contact Metrol by using a mobile phone.  A circumstance which perhaps should not have happened, and I can't recall if it said what network was used, but imagine if there had been an outage at the time.

Reported in the HS today about the loss of access to pesos and other criminals who are tracked using the telstra Mobile Network and GPS.  The Telstra network reaches a lot of people.

I think that must be it as the reports state high risk individuals forced to wear angle tags with GPS were unable to be tracked during the outage and for a period afterwards.

Is there is someone really watching the location of these people every minute of every day and night or is that just what we are supposed to think?

They’re not tracked by an individual watching them. The leg bracelet reports it’s location, sourced by GPS back to a computer by the mobile network. The computers are given an applicable range of allowance (or range of exclusion in the case of pedophiles or those subject to AVO etc), and other criteria and flags an actual event for investigation if something not allowed or unusual is detected.

I don't think about the much more efficient disasters from privatised organisations anymore - the output only upsets me. Crying or Very sad
