Reception problems with Vodafone, network down for 3 million
If you're a customer of Vodafone, you may be waiting a while to make a call, or indeed do anything else with your handset. A fault means that customers across the UK can't use their mobiles for calls, texts or data services.
The problem has been ongoing for at least six hours; the only acknowledgment from Vodafone that there's any sort of issue is in the Vodafone forums, in response to a customer.
There's next to no detail given, only to say the problem is UK-wide; other reports suggest the issue is affecting approximately 3.2 million customers with SIMs registered at the company's Basingstoke data centre.
The service provider is promising a statement shortly; in the meantime, you'll have to make do without, or using those phones with wires. Old skool.
