Taste mobile alarm NL-Alert fails to all users – update




A test with the mobile alarm NL-Alert Monday afternoon for some users failed. As with previous testing, it seems that some of those who did have the phone set has not gotten the message precisely control.

It is still unknown how much, why and which users have not received the test message, if it appears on the basis of responses to include Twitter and GoT that more people have received the test message than last time. How many people have received the message only appears in a few months. The responsible ministry has recourse TNS Nipo study on how many people received the message, but the results follow until August.

NL-Alert does not yet work on all networks. The 4G networks of T-Mobile and Vodafone are not suitable, while KPN Monday was only ready to send the message to some of its 4G customers. There are a total of over four million devices with 4G in circulation.

As of December 1, the government required providers to transmit NL-Alert over any network. Then all providers must be able to send messages to all networks. NL-Alert will be especially important because the government intends to remove the conventional air alarms over several years and not replaced, so NL-Alert is the primary way to warn people.

The government has for several years engaged in NL-Alert. The system works via cell broadcasts and not through the regular channels on the network. Consequently it also works as networks are overloaded. However, in many cases, users must set their device to receive emergency notifications.
