Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

[ Edited ]

I’m still getting SMS text messaging problems but it don’t seem as bad as it was yesterday and this morning.

Maybe things are now slowly starting to get fully back to normal service.

@welshsteve76my husband is a contractor in building trade. There were 4 contractors trying to contact him yest and as a result he lost one contract. This has obviously had a direct result on our household income and it’s SE people who have been affected more so due to loosing money on their income, o2 hold all these form of details so should start with the higher paid tariffs because people paying for those kind of services are doing so for business reasons and as a direct result are loosing out, however I believe every customer should be compensated because they are all in a contract and have lost services they are paying for.

Absolutely.  Everyone is entitled to compensation ultimately, however little.  Make sure your husband puts this together in his claim because this could mean a significant payout for him if it can be proven that not being able to receive a call cost him the business.

Thanks

Have you read the link?
No mention of what the compensation actually will be.
Direct lift from the report:
"O2 has repeatedly apologised for the problems, though it has not offered any specific information about giving people refunds."

Apologies @Shergar - the Indy page had nothing on it, then the page refreshed (after posting!) and @EmilieT had posted to reflect what you said...
I'll get back under my rock for now then...
