FIFA World Cup fans have slammed Optus over coverage of last night’s Egypt v. Uruguay match which was subjected to constant buffering and drop-outs.
Optus is the only provider with all 64 matches both Live to Australians.
Angry fans took to social media with a tirade of anger.
With Australia playing tonight there are just hours remaining to avoid a much bigger disaster. Much.
Update via Daily Tele: An Optus spokesperson apologised for the disruption and said they were investigating the cause.
“Some Optus Sport customers experienced a disruption to their 2018 FIFA World Cup viewing experience on Friday night,” they said.
“This was due to an extremely high number of viewers logging into our platforms just before kick-off causing some systems to overload.
“While most customers on most platforms were unaffected, we apologise unreservedly to those customers who were, and are continuing to investigate the cause of these systems issues.”
