You might have noticed that you couldn't make calls yesterday
That's because O2's network suffered a massive
outage - some customers reported having no voice or data
services which meant they couldn't call, receive calls, use mobile
broadband or write text messages.
Nevertheless, the good news is that O2
published the following statement saying that everything was
running at optimum efficiency:
"We can confirm that our 2G network service has now been
restored. Customers who were affected should now be able to make
and receive calls.
"Our 3G service is starting to restore and customers should
expect to see a gradual return of data services as the day
The mobile operator also suggested that customers switch their
handsets on and off as it might help to get the services back
This happened due to a network system glitch,
the provider confirmed and apologised.
It is also worth saying that not all customers were affected -
while some were taking the Twittersphere voicing their
complaints, others reported that their services
were working smoothly and they could call, text and browse
