Singapore netizens are discussing the resignation of Optus CEO amid widespread disruptions in Australia, viewing it as an act of ‘taking full responsibility’ for the outage. However, some are questioning her accountability, considering that Optus is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Singaporean telecommunications company, Singtel.
A recent report by an Australian media outlet has linked the extensive 16-hour disruption of Optus services to a network operated by Singapore Telecom (Singtel). Interestingly, this is the same network used by Optus for its service provision.
Channelnews, citing a source claiming to be a senior executive from a company closely associated with Optus, reported that Singtel was managing the network at the time of the outage.
