Aldi mobile service suffers data outage

Problem now resolved says spokesperson

A fault that temporarily prevented Aldi Mobile some customers from using cellular data services has been resolved according to a spokesperson for the MVNO.

Earlier today the telco posted a notice in its website stating that its "carrier has identified the issue that caused the outage and is working aggressively to remedy this for all ALDImobile customers."

"This morning we experienced a technical issue which temporarily prevented some of our customers from being able to use their data for a period of time," an Aldi spokesperson said.

"We have been working hard since the issue was raised and this has now been resolved. We would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused by this outage.

"We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time."

Aldi Mobile services are sold exclusively through Aldi supermarkets; however, the service is operated by Medion.

The service operates on Telstra's 3G network. Previously Medion sourced services via ispONE but in the wake of the latter's collapse it struck a deal directly with Telstra Wholesale.

Aldi Mobile launched just over a year ago.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
