Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

I finally got through to livechat after refreshing the website constantly for over half an hour. End result, I was escalated to a level 2 guru, who is raising this as a fault for me (and my mother as well) and all I can suggest is somehow getting onto the live chat, and asking for it to be reported to be fixed.

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

Hi 

 

is your phone still not working... 

Mine came on this morning... 

Sounds like some are ok and others are still down... 

Have you bin able to get in touch with  02... 

 

This is the status on the 02 web page... 

How it gives you some information.... 

 

We can now report that our 4G network has been restored. Our technical teams will continue to monitor service performance closely over the next few days to ensure we remain stable. A review will be carried out with Ericsson to understand fully what happened. We’d like to thank our customers for their patience during the loss of service on Thursday 6 December and we’re sorry for any impact the issue may have caused.
 
Mark Evans, CEO, Telefonica (O2) UK:
I want to let our customers know how sorry I am for the impact our network data issue has had on them, and reassure them that our teams, together with Ericsson, are doing everything we can. 
We will continue to work with Ericsson, through the night, who have assured us that a full service will be restored for customers by the morning. We fully appreciate it’s been a poor experience and we are really sorry. 
Marielle Lindgren, CEO Ericsson UK & Ireland:
The cause of today’s network issue is in certain nodes in the core network resulting in network disturbances for a limited number of customers across the world, including in the UK. We have been working hard on resolving the UK data issue since early this morning. The faulty software that has caused these issues is being decommissioned. Our priority is to restore full data services on the network by tomorrow morning. Ericsson sincerely apologises to customers for the inconvenience caused.

I finally got thought to live online chat and told them the problems I been having with my SMS text messaging. They says they will look at customers accounts once the network is fully back to normal and will see about some sort of competition and that SMS text messaging service should be fully working soon and they are sorry for the problems customers have been having since yesterday.

If the SMS text messaging service is not back to normal by tomorrow I will not be very happy.

For info -

I eventually got through to customer services too, on the phone about an hour ago.

They are aware of the ongoing problems with text messaging and engineers are working on it.

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

@EmilieT I have just been advised that NO MORE COMPENSATION is being given out as of now until a statement is made by the company, however you do not know when this statement will be made, WHEN will it be made and why should I pay my phone bill until you resolve this? If I do not pay I will incur charges so shouldn’t o2 be paying us charges for everyday we are not paid compensation too? It works both ways and can’t be one rule for you if we are late paying but not the other way around!!!!!

Re: O2 Network Issues - 6th December 2018

O2’s official line in no compensation has been agreed or given yet. The £75 figure is probably plucked out if the air to wind people up. And it’s working.

Anyway £75 per direct customer would be approx £190 million. Never going to happen.
