News : Services Now Back Up After Auckland Outage, Says Vodafone
Auckland, New Zealand, May 20, 2016 -- Vodafone says it has restored services to Auckland's CBD, west Auckland and Northland after they were affected by an outage on Friday afternoon.

She said at 5.30pm that Vodafone had fully fixed the fault.
However, Vodafone's call centre was still experiencing long wait times as result of the problems, she said.
Downey had earlier apologised for the issues.
