And MTN, that is how you communicate with your customers...

Though, a network switch failure shouldn't really take out a whole DC... but anyway

So if I understand this correctly a switch the servers needed for some Telkom servers went down, so it was a server redundancy issue really.

Weird, you'd expect they have layer 2 redundancy and STP for such a massive operation. Should i say "but then it's Telkom" ?

Very limited impact. No hosting services or customer services were affected. Some internal services only...

In my day we would never have allowed such a situation to happen especially at the NOC for the whole country.

So before you say "but then it's Telkom" rather say "this what Telkom has become since privatisation."
