    O2 network down for most of the South East of England

    It’s a big blackout, we hear… over a landline…

    We’ve just had an unconfirmed report that O2s network from London all the way down to Brighton is down.

    O2 customers are waking up this morning to find that their SIMs are showing as unregistered and a call to O2 tech support elicited the response “the whole network’s down from London to Brighton and Portsmouth”.

    If memory serves right, T-Mobile uses the same network, so they could be down too...

    Are you affected? Let us know.

    Just spent 15 minutes getting hold of a business support person...

    ...only to be told that a "major issue has taken out huge chunks of the network from London to the south coast. Not sure when it will be back up. Apologies. Please wait."

    To be fair, this is the first major outage I have had with them - but still not fun

    Can anyone else hear the 'network kit sales pitch' ?...

    "No problem sir, we have multiple, independent, redundant systems to ensure mission critical success"

    .
    .

    I kept 6 trusted serving men, they taught me all I knew.
    There names were what and where and why and how and when and who.


    (I also had the HEXUS forums on speed dial just in case )

    More like some disaffected, spotty youth has finally put down his copy of Silver Surfer, execu-glided across the server room and flicked a switch.

    Blimey, I'd have thought they'd fixed it since 2006?
