Du suffers outage on fixed-line network
Lines remained down for three hours
UAE telco Du experienced an outage on its fixed-line network in Dubai today, with fixed-line services to businesses in Du areas including Dubai Media City and Dubai International Financial Centre out of action for almost three hours from around 1pm.
The outage occurred after technicians at Du attempted to carry out an upgrade on the telco's PRI (Primary Rate Interface) line, according to a technician at the operator, who preferred to remain anonymous.
The outage affected incoming and outgoing calls, and services appeared to have fully resumed by 4pm.
