Share post: recently suffered a DDoS attack after the company reported unexpected outages in its voice and messaging services on September 25.

While the voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services company has released a continuous update on outages affecting voice, Enhanced 911 services, messaging and access to the portal.

Bandwidth in a recent update noted that services are now being restored, however, the company has yet to publicly explain the main cause of the outage.
