6.4 quake strikes near Kaikoura, causes outages on Spark's network

A strong earthquake centered just off Kaikoura has caused problems with the Spark mobile network today.

The magnitude 6.4 quake centered 40km north west of Kaikoura, left those in the area "shaken up" this afternoon.

Spark spokeswoman Michelle Baguley said the outage on the Spark mobile network began immediately after the earthquake.

 

An update: The mobile network congestion that's arisen after the #eqnz shakes is affecting other parts of NZ. Thanks for your reports. ^TRF

"There was a lot of heavy congestion immediately afterwards. We have seen ongoing issues on the mobile network since then."

Ms Baguley said it had been "progressively recovering" over the past hour and a half, although some customers may still have had trouble texting or calling over that time.

Those in the Wellington area were most effected by the outage, she said.

"The network is still progressively recovering, some customers may still be experiencing some issues but we hope that it will be up and running shortly."

Public information specialist for GeoNet, Caroline Little, said those in the Kaikoura area were sure to have felt today's tremor.
