Canada’s telecommunications regulator said Tuesday it had ordered Rogers Communications to answer questions about last week’s network outage that affected millions of Canadians.
Rogers must provide a detailed account of ‘why’ and ‘how’ the outage occurred, and what measures the company is putting in place to prevent future outages, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said. in a press release.
