EFTpos, banks unable to access - outage

A few of our clients were in for a rude shock today as outage in the bank’s network left them unable to access EFTpos. No-one warned them and they thought their was something wrong with their systems so they rang us up. It took a while before we found out that it was the bank's fault. Then all we could do is tell them is that the bank's had been notified.

This is the third major outage this month that I know in EFTpos.

A very good site to monitor this is aussieoutages.com

Looking at it, the Commonwealth bank this week been the worst, here is today's graph of the CBA bank by reports.
