IP Voice/SIP/ Hosted PBX/MS Teams

Please be advised that we are currently experiencing congestion on inbound calls. Our upstream carrier has confirmed an 80% increase for inbound calls over the last week, and as a result has encountered call switching failures. These call issues are nationwide and carrier wide.

These are due in short to the sharp increase in calls with people who are now working from home from the COVID-19 and the diverting of office phones to a mobile, and the calling to the COVID-19 hotline. This issue has been raised with the carrier with urgency, updates will be provided as they come to hand. No ETA at this time.

CommsChoice are also seeing an increase of incoming calls returning congestion signals into Telstra Call Collection Areas prior to reaching the CCG network. We have been able to isolate this congestion with our upstream partners and Voice Engineers are currently working with partners escalation teams. As a result, your IP Voice service(s) may be experiencing intermittent congestion during this period. We anticipate these services will be back to normal from 5pm 24 march. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
