O2 investigating network data problems

BACK O2 has apologised over the loss

O2 customers aren't the only mobile phone users who are experience technical issues today.

The company is blaming software issues at one of its suppliers for the problems.

O2 said its technical teams are working with its supplier's teams to fix the problem.

O2 said: "Our technical teams are investigating reports of issues when using data. We apologise for any inconvenience".

"We'd encourage you to use Wi-Fi wherever you can and we are really sorry".

O2 customers will have noticed that there hasn't been faintest sign of 4G or the ability to use data services and people are started to get a bit pissed off.

O2 has said a "full service" will be restored by Friday morning following a data outage, which affected millions of users.

In addition, London Bus timetables rely on O2's coverage, meaning that these were also down this morning. Transport for London said: "The company that updates the data to our network of Countdown Systems is now experiencing difficulties in providing this service".
