EE network outage today, signal problems

Updated on

We have been getting reports of an EE network outage today, which comes after Product Reviews readers explain they have iPad Air 4G signal problems and cannot find the network on their smartphone as well. After this news arrived to us by email, we checked Twitter and can see a lot of tweets detailing EE network problems with no signal on both tablet and phone.

One Product Reviews reader explained, “I’m not getting any EE signal on my iPad Air, or my phone. It went down in the last 30 minutes”. Another added, “There’s no signal in south east and north London on my iPhone or iPad”.


You will also notice that the official Everything Everywhere online shop and support website are down. We just visited the site and took a screenshot of what we saw, as you see below there’s a site under maintenance message. This means that not only are phones getting no signal along with iPads running on EE, but also the online website is experiencing an outage.


Do you have EE signal problems on your 4G tablet or smartphone? If so, what UK location are you in and how long have you had no signal or other issues?

We will keep Product Reviews readers updated on any possible fix, so feel free to leave any information you have in the comments below. The issue with the website might be due to too many people looking on for an announcement, so this could be driving the website offline.

Update: It looks like a fix has been implemented and the official Twitter channel just explained, “While not all of our customers were affected, service has been resumed for many of those who were. Full service will be resumed soon”.

  • Scottie Nick

    To everyone. .. its a system outage nationwide which is currently being investigated and worked on as a high priority. You don’t need to go into stores to get a new sim card tomorrow as thats not the problem. It’s affecting all phones not just apple devices. The IT team will be working flat out to resolve this and people have short memories as it’s happened with other networks before it’s just an unfortunate thing that it’s affecting EE and it’s network.
    The network has recently been awarded the best network for lowest outages which I’m guessing IIs a curse as previously two other networks who were awarded it suffered outages soon afterwards.
    I work in the telecoms industry but not affiliated to any network and have worked internationally and have to say the UK networks generally are leading the world in lowest number of outages.
    Yes it’s inconvenient but just remember everything that goes into running a telecoms network…
