Vodafone Egypt fined 500,000 euros for coverage outage

Egyptian authorities said Monday they had fined the national branch of mobile phone giant Vodafone 500,000 euros over a coverage outage last week just ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

The National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) said it made the „unprecedented“ move after services dropped „for several hours, in multiple regions“ on June 3 just before the holiday which marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting.

Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger down globally

Data from the incident lets us rule out a global routing issue as the underlying cause, and NetBlocks also hasn’t observed the kind of spike in latency prior to the outage usually associated with a DDoS attack. This points to a different kind of attack or technical issue within Facebook’s data centres. Analysis of data shows partial failures starting some hours prior to the initial NetBlocks alert.
