"We're working closely with emergency services in those States", Telstra tweeted at 6.35am.

Phone systems are also being impacted, with landline and mobile services impacted.

People facing emergencies are being told to call the Police Assistance Line - 131 444 - if they can't get through on triple-zero.

South Australia Police issued similar advice as to the number to be called.

Telstra has confirmed that it is now undertaking fibre repairs near Orange, New South Wales, to bring Triple Zero emergency services back up.
