SVT blames problem with Internet connection on someone else. Media working during the day at the Press Center near Malmö Arena has been haunted by slow Internet connection all day long. Journalist’s working wasn’t able to access Internet from time to time and great problems trying to upload media content. Oikotimes suffered a lot of this as we weren’t able to provide you live-TV from the press conferences and got slow providing all the videos.
Technicians from SVT could be seen during the day going around and investigating what might have cause this problem with the wireless network in the Press Centre. Later during the evening SVT announced that they had found what might have caused these problems. “A new technical installation in Malmö Arena that was made earlier this week caused the problems on the network” SVT now claims.
As we know the cause of the problems on Internet we hopefully can bring back full Internet connection tomorrow (Saturday) or later during that day, SVT says in their statement.
We believe SVT should have checked the wireless setup earlier in advance in order to foresee this problem before the press center opened on Friday. As it now happened SVT apologies for any inconveniences caused by this. Unfortunately, SVT do not apologize Oikotimes readers directly, so that we have to do instead. We blame our problems on SVT, and SVT, as it is convenient for them, blames their problems on some technical installations…
