Telecommunications provider Orcon is experiencing a major outage, cutting off internet and phone access to customers across the country. Services first went down late on Monday night, then again from lunchtime today. Orcon’s call centre and phone lines have also been affected, so the company is using Twitter to tell customers about the problem. It tweeted, "Outage is still continuing. Our tech (team) are working as hard as they can to fix the issue. I'll update as soon as it is resolved, I'll update," just after 12pm. Dozens of users had been asking the company what was wrong with their internet connections this morning. The company was also hit by an outage last Friday, which lasted about one hour.
