Fridge fault causes Telstra mobile network blackouts
WANGARATTA'S backyard beer swillers are marvelling at the magic of their chillers after one man's fridge played havoc with Telstra's mobile network.
The faulty unit shooting out freak electric signals was believed to have caused interference in the mobile data network across several neighbourhoods of the town.
A team of the telco's crack black-spot cops tracked the rogue beer fridge to a garage in Wangaratta.
This followed the Telstra network "war room" detecting the interference in the system. Telstra engineers say problems are pinpointed by "software robots" scanning reams of system data. Defective electric waves can interfere with nearby network cells which are the lifeline to smartphones and tablets.
Telstra engineers say any electric spark of a large enough magnitude can generate radio frequency noise that is wide enough to create blackouts on the 850mHz spectrum that carries our mobile voice calls and internet data.
Engineers said the motor in the beer fridge was causing the interference.
