Answered question

A lot of issue with mobile data today in Ottawa/Gloucester area. Any other?

This was the second time in a short time. Don't understand what is going on. I knew their network is strong.
It was so frustrating to not be able to use my data. Seems like we depend to much of technology.
Weird thing is that on display it was saying LTE+ but no connection to google.com or any other website.
Is now working normal now? I feel a little bit dissapointed.

Yes, kokoboko, the DNS issue applies to mobile, too. In my answer above it shows how you can change the DNS on your device :)

Are you referring to mobile or home internet or both?

Videotron and Fizz are having DNS problem. See Whizz's post here:

For short term solution, you can change the DNS on your device or the Fizz modem.

For device, go to settings:

Yes, there's an outage due to a DNS server from Videotron (Fizz parent company). They said they are working to fix the issue.

In the meantime it's possible to change the DNS servers on your device to fix the problem. Below are some links:

I hope it helps.

Hi Emanuel,

Thank you for feedback but "Devices running versions older than Android 9 do not support DNS-over-TLS and cannot configure private DNS for all networks".
Anyway is not the customer job to search on forums how to setup/update whatever internet settings.

Hello kokoboko,

Apologies for the situation experienced and for the late answer.
Yesterday around 1:00 pm we had a short downtime on our services and the ones affected were the Home internet and the Mobile data.
The issue has been identified and a dedicated team is currently working to address it.

Fizz apologizes for the inconvenience this may be causing you.

Thank you for your understanding,
Have a good one.
