O2’s network crashes again

Network crash

O2 has again left its customers with data problems across its network and has yet to indicate when things will be up and running.

The mobile provider confirmed via Twitter yesterday that some of its customers were having data problems and said the services would be back up that night.

Today, the company tweeted just after midday saying the problem was still affecting customers, but this time offered no deadline for a fully functional service.

The tweet said: "We apologise to customers who cannot use data at the moment. We have a fault with the allocation of IP addresses which we are fixing."

O2 had a number of problems throughout the summer with its network.

In July customers lost both internet access and MMS abilities twice in one week and less than two weeks later the service faltered again cutting internet capabilities.
