Phone meltdown blights comms conference

Keep me hanging on the telephone

The TMA conference had to live without phones this morning as exhibitors complained of a phone system meltdown in Brighton. The breakdown in communications was a result of over demand on both land and mobile networks. "We tried to get a fax through all morning," said Maurice Jones, managing director of C3 Computer Telephony."But both land and mobile lines seemed to be down. I looked around and everyone elese was having the same problem. It was a nightmare." The TMA organisers were not available for comment as we couldn't get a dial tone. ® Click here for more stories
