O2 down with outage in parts of UK

By Gary Johnson - May 17, 2011

Today it’s the turn of a different company to experience downtime besides Sony. We have the news that mobile phone carrier O2 is down with outage in parts of UK.

Bill Ray from The Register is reporting that the mobile carrier has been suffering downtime to its service since just after midnight. Customers are unable to make calls or use any data services since the early hours of this morning.

The areas that we know of being affected so far are mainly in the southeast. Areas around North and East London, as well as Kent and Sussex are known to have problems with service. Certain customers have said they can get data connections, but no voice services. But there are many who have no service what so ever.

Other mobile companies that piggy back the O2 network are Tesco Mobile and GiffGaff also have no service. GiffGaff have posted a map to show users which areas have service and which don’t. It is not known what has caused the outage but O2 have said engineers are working on the problem.
