Rogers outage: CRTC demands answers
Canada’s telecom regulator on Tuesday said it had asked Rogers Communications to answer questions about last week’s outage that affected millions of Canadians.
Rogers needs to provide a detailed account of the “why” and “how” of the outage, as well as what measures the company is taking to prevent future outages, the Commission said. Radio, Television and Telecommunications Canada said in a statement.
The company has until July 22 to provide its responses, after which the CRTC will decide what additional measures need to be taken.

As a first step to better understand what happened last Friday, we made a request to Rogers to provide information about the outage and the measures that will be taken to ensure the ability to network recovery.
We will keep you informed. https://t.co/fLCYNYoE0w
