Movistar business mobiles suffer a drop in service

Movistar’s mobile phone service for companies has suffered a drop in service past noon this Friday, the company explained to this medium. The telephone company states that the failure does not affect the service to the rest of the users and that corporate mobiles maintain some of their functions, such as receiving calls from other lines that do not belong to the business network. Movistar sources explain that “they are working intensely” to solve it.

The first notifications of the fall occurred just after 12 noon according to the Downdetector website, which specializes in indexing this type of reports on failures in digital services. The peak of incidents was registered at 1:17 pm, after which it began to decline.

Multiple users have reported the failure also through social networks. An hour after the first notices, Movistar has recognized that the fall was due to a “generalized incidence”. After 2:00 pm, Telefónica’s official Twitter account has confirmed that the drop specifically affects the “Movistar Fusión Empresas” rates.
