Other customers stated that the problem had also impacted ATMs.

“Comm Bank, [it would be] helpful if you informed customers as to why we are unable to access Netbank?” People are also alleging that their ATMs show zero money even when they have funds.” One consumer tweeted.

“Netbank is unavailable. Absolute anarchy is taking place. The first day of school vacation, and CommBank has gone bankrupt. There will be no internet transfers, ATMs, or EFT. “Don’t bother calling, the lines are congested,” wrote another.

Customers were apprehensive even after the bank’s 4 p.m. update.

“I understand it must have been a stressful day,” one responded, “but we will need a lot more explanations about what went wrong.”
