Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says the Optus network outage, which occurred almost two weeks ago, was a “shocking incident”.
Mr Albanese’s remarks come after Optus CEO Kelly Bayer Rosmarin resigned following a Senate grilling following the major national outage in telecommunications services which left many Australians unable to connect to triple zero calls or to the internet.
Mr Albanese said Ms Bayer Rosmarin resigning isn’t surprising given the circumstances.
He said the government has set up an analysis in order to see what the lessons are from the network outage.
“We’ll be transparent about sending that message through to the private sector as well as to the public sector,” he told Sky News Australia.
