On the morning of the 18th, NTT East's landline phone became temporarily difficult to connect in Tokyo, and NTT is investigating the cause.

According to NTT East, it has become difficult to connect to landlines in Tokyo for more than two and a half hours after 8 am on the 19th.

The difficult situation was resolved around 10:50 am.

On the 19th, NTT is investigating that the cause is unknown because there is no restriction on incoming calls to all landlines in Tokyo due to reservations for vaccination with the new coronavirus.

NTT East commented, "We apologize for the inconvenience caused."
