Eircom says its services have stabilised this evening and customers should now be able to make and receive calls without disruption.

A fault on the company's core telephony network caused problems for some mobile and landline calls for several hours today.

Eircom said about 5% of its total network traffic was affected.
-
The situation primarily affected business customers, including companies using 1800 and 1500 numbers, and people trying to call those numbers.
-
Mobile customers were also affected.
-
A spokesperson for Eircom said businesses with complex telephony systems were particularly affected.
-
The spokesperson said calls were now being connected, and Eircom was still working to investigate the root cause of the problem.
-
The spokesperson said Eircom would provide telecoms regulator Comreg with an incident report in relation to the situation, and that this was standard practice where its service had experienced disruption.

Comreg said it was engaging with the company and would be seeking a full incident report from it.

Earlier, the Health Service Executive said Eircom confirmed that all 1890,1950, and 1800 numbers in Dublin, including the medical card line were restored.
