We've been following the incident updates from Optus and this affects primarily SMS but also some Mobile Internet, so some Reminders, login & 2fa codes may not be being sent to customers and clients in Australia and those using Optus Mobile for internet will be unable to access Timely (or any other internet service). We are continuing to monitor the incident updates from Optus.
