Vodafone suffers network outage
Vodafone suffered a network outage yesterday morning, following in the footsteps of former iPhone incumbent O2.
The network crash first came to light at 7am on Thursday morning, and affected a ‘small number of users’, the operator said. It was resolved by 9am.
It left some Vodafone customers unable to make or receive calls, send emails or text messages, or surf the internet.
The network did not give an exact reason for the network outage, but said that engineers had been working on Vodafone systems at the time of the glitch.
Vodafone has around 18.7 million customers in the UK, with more than a quarter of its subscribers using a BlackBerry or other internet-enabled handset.
