MTN has stated that its Gallo Manor Data Centre did not suffer from an outage, as reported by MyBroadband on 14 February 2016.

Initial coverage of the reported downtime at the data centre was based on feedback from individuals with knowledge of the IT space.

Reports of the network operator’s virtual private servers, and various domain name (DNS) and content delivery network (CDN) services being down were received.

MTN has reaffirmed, in a statement to MyBroadband, that its data centre did not suffer from an outage – and that the reports on the downtime were unsubstantiated.

It said inaccurate reports and information can mislead its customers, and tarnish the company’s reputation.

MyBroadband apologises to its readers and to MTN for the inaccurate report.
