Dutch mobile and landlines down for the whole country -Update::: Dutch telcom giant KPN down!
My neighbor came round a cople of minutes ago, to ask me if I had any luck making a phonecall. So I tried, but no matter what number I try to call, it says it is “phone isn’t answered, try again later”. It seems it concerns the whole nation wide network.

My question is; 1 any dutch glp’ers who know more?
2 is it just the netherlands, or are more counties affected?


UPDATE:
It was confirmed by news, the company who owns the mobile network “KPN” seems to be the problem. Don’t know what the exact cause is, but it strikes me as very odd. I can’t remember ever having a nation wide, all providers outage. Imagine the chaos. It’s one of the hottest days since decennia, bringing all sorts of extra problems for emt’s fire dept. and police for starters. Many older people are having problems with the high tempratures reaching 35° celcius (+/- 90° f).

Nice, just wanted to post this but GLP AI said this thread already existed hiding

This is a mayor outage across prety much the entire country, i got an emergency message on my phone giving this news and also some other phone numbers to contact police or any other service. No cause as of yet, could very well be heat related as today was the hottest day of the year for us (starting of a small heatwave for most of the country).

Found some news of it of non dutch origin: [link to www.cnbc.com (secure)]

quoting from article:
Anna Posthumus, a spokeswoman at the National Coordinator for Security and Counter-Terrorism, said “it’s too early to say” whether there may have been a cyber attack. “Our first priority is making sure that everything works again.”
 Quoting:

Then why say something like that, could as well been heat related.

Maybe you should add to the Title: BREAKING: Dutch Emergency Services Down!!

I am while typing this recieving the second warning from the National Emergency Message Center. A system called into life to give national emergency warnings to every Dutch mobile phone.
