O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

[ Edited ]

Good morning all, 

 

We are aware our customers are unable to use data this morning.

 

Our technical teams are working on the issue with high priority. We are really sorry and working as hard and as fast as we can to fix this.

 

Please keep an eye on our status checker: http://o2.uk/ServiceStatus 

 

Latest Update:

Our 3G and 4G data services are performing as normal. Our technical teams are continuing to monitor service performance closely. We will be updating our customers later today on how we will make yesterday’s data service issue up to them and we’d once again like to thank our customers for their patience. 

A small proportion of customers have reported issues sending text messages. We can see that the vast majority are being sent and received successfully and our technical teams are investigating. Our 3G and 4G data services are performing as normal.

We are finalising how we make it up to our customers and will be contacting them later today about this. 

The Facebook mention around us giving out £75 compensation isn't correct and didn't come from us.

Not just data affected. Text & general network coverage also now affected.

 

Bad day to want to use your mobile ...

Hi Emilie,

 

I think this issue has been bubbling away in teh background for some weeks and O2 have done nothing to prepare for it.  Several weeks ago I ran out of data and despite trying to purchase more data (myself and more than a dozen O2 staff members) it was impossible to get more data.  Now this.

 

What on earth is going on with you guys.  Totally losing faith with O2 given all of the down time I've had to endure recently - not being able to use ones phone when you're paying to do so is not great service I'm sure you'll agree.

 

And as someone else has also stated the service status update page just doesn't load.  Seems there's not much O2 can get right this morning.  Little wonder your Live Chat is down this morning.

Wouldn't it make more sense for o2 to text users about this issue? Putting a message on their website is abit pointless if you cant access the net.

Friend works for o2 and getting loads of calls this morning as nobody knows the issue as they cant get online to check

O2 STOP SAYING PHONE CALLS AR OK, THEY ARE NOT.   It is not just data that is not working.  I cannot make calls or send texts.  This also happened to me on Tuesday, I had no service.  Managed to reset phone by changing data preference to 3g, turned phone off and then back on and service returned - then reset data preference back to 4g.  This has not worked today.  I can make calls if I am connected to my home wifi but if phone is set to mobile data I CANNOT MAKE CALLS, neither can my husband.

@LH how do you change preferences to 3G? I might try it to see if it's an improvement for me.
