Seems like O2 is down this evening. It must be a fairly widespread problem since loads of people have posted about it on Facebook and Twitter.
I searched for information online but there was nothing on O2’s website, which is pretty poor.
Some forums discussed the outage, although there were no facts – only speculation that building work at a data centre had damaged the power supply to the building.
Anyway, I don’t care. I don’t like being phoned, and I also have a Vodafone handset if I particularly feel like calling someone.
As for data service to my iPhone, this is being supplied by my WLAN deathnet. My ADSL is almost as fast as a 3G connection(!)
Perhaps the service I will miss most is SMS – although most of the people I care about will know that I’m also contactable by other text-based protocols. 😉
That said, I’m off to sleep now and will not be contactable by any means for several hours. Goodnight!
One thought on “O2 is down”
Well, this BBC news article explains it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8677348.stm
But what I want to know is why O2 posted an update on Twitter, but didn’t bother putting a message on their own website.
