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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
