Rogers to Face Financial Hit After Canada Network Failure

Technology

Cable and wireless firm Rogers Communications Inc. said it will give customers a credit worth five days of service as compensation for last week’s network failure, which knocked more than 10 million people offline and temporarily choked Canada’s payments system.

The move is “a first step” to regain the trust of consumers, Rogers spokesperson Chloe Luciani-Girouard said in an emailed statement. “We have been listening to our customers and Canadians from across the country who have told us how significant the impacts of the outage were for them,” she said.
