London police asking people not to test their phones by calling 9-1-1

London Police Service says it is aware of the network outages being experienced by Rogers customers and is asking people not to test their phone by calling 9-1-1.

Police tell CTV News London they have received several calls Friday morning of people calling 9-1-1 to make sure it still works.

“Doing so ties up the system for people who are in need of emergency assistance,” said police in a social media post.

If you are experiencing issues with your phone, you are asked to use a landline or try another mobile device that is not on the Rogers network. 

Some businesses are also reporting issues with their ability to accept debit and credit transactions, including the Starbucks on the corner of Wonderland Road and Commissioners Road.
