Vodafone suffered an outage which knocked out part of its landline network across New Zealand for around 5 hours.
A power outage at the network's operation centre in Aukland caused the problem, which was also limited to just former customers of WorldxChange Communication, which was bought by Vodafone in 2015.
A Vodafone spokesperson said that the problem was fixed by around 6pm local time.
WorldxChange was primarily a B2B service provider, so the impact was felt mostly by Vodafone's business customers.
Around 30,000 customers were affected by the outage.
