Rogers Communications Inc, Canada's largest wireless phone company, said it restored all wireless voice services and some messaging capabilities after it experienced an outage across the country.

Rogers Communications says a software problem was responsible for knocking out part of the company's wireless network for several hours on Wednesday evening.

Chief technology officer Bob Berner said the problem affected network equipment and caused service interruptions for voice and text messaging services across the country.

Customers of Rogers Wireless experienced widespread, hours-long outages of their voice cellphone service Wednesday evening, with the company saying it had fixed the problem by late night.
