1m Orange punters hit by glitch

Network loses zest for some hours

More than a million Orange customers experienced difficulties using their mobile phones yesterday following problems on the company's network.

Punters began experiencing intermittent problems making phone calls from around 3.30pm yesterday afternoon.

According to Orange more than ten per cent of its 12.4 million customers had to redial a number of times before succeeding in making calls.

A spokesman for Orange said the glitch was resolved by 9.00pm last night and apologised for any inconvenience. ®
