Any­one vis­it­ing Gren­fell Cam­pus, Memo­rial Univer­sity this past week may have been thrown for a loop if they checked the time on their cell­phones.

Hope­fully, no­body was tardy for an im­por­tant meet­ing.

In cer­tain ar­eas of the cam­pus, the time dis­played on dig­i­tal de­vices was half an hour be­hind what the ac­tual time was.

The de­vices would cor­rect them­selves from At­lantic Day­light Time to New­found­land Day­light Time time once out of the ar­eas af­fected.

The com­mu­ni­ca­tions staff at Gren­fell was aware of the is­sue, but could not ex­plain it.

When asked by the Saltwire Net­work about it Fri­day, Bell Aliant spokesper­son Mark Dug­gan said that, as part of re­cent net­work en­hance­ments in the Gren­fell Cam­pus area, some small cells were in­stalled and non-crit­i­cal con­fig­u­ra­tion de­tails — such as the time zone — were not com­plete.

Dug­gan added that Bell’s en­gi­neers are work­ing to make the ad­just­ments and hoped to have ev­ery­one on the same sched­ule soon.

The prob­lem seemed to have been ad­dressed later Fri­day af­ter­noon.
