Google has issued a warning to Australians that their internet service may be down.
The internet giant has posted an advisory on its blog on Thursday warning of a possible outage of services that allow users to access the internet without using a proxy, VPN or VPN provider.
“If your internet is down, please contact your ISP, and ask them to try and resolve the issue.
They may have to re-enable your connection and restart it,” the company said.”
We’re working hard to resolve the problem but we won’t be able to guarantee you a good internet experience in the near future.”
Internet service providers have been criticised for their slow response to internet outages, with some saying they were not able to keep up with demand.
The warning from Google comes after it said last week that Australians could experience significant disruptions to their internet services.
It warned that the company’s website and mobile apps could become inaccessible in the event of a outage.
“Your internet service provider may experience a down, or you may be unable to access certain services, or access certain content, or be able, if your provider provides you with a proxy or VPN service, to access websites you want to access, such as Google,” the advisory said.
Earlier this week, the Australian Communications and Media Authority warned of a potential outage of its services in the state of New South Wales if the state’s power was cut.
