Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Orange's mobile phone network went on the blink this morning, leaving the trendy operator clutching straws for excuses.

Readers who've called Vulture Central say that the outage appears to be country-wide and that it only appears to be hitting contract mobile phone users.

However, Orange wouldn't comment on the scope or scale of the problem. In fact, they wouldn't answer any questions except to issue the following statement.

"We confirm that a small number of Orange customers are currently unable to make or receive call on the Orange network. Our engineers and those of our network equipment suppliers are working to establish the cause of the fault and will restore service as soon as possible," it said.

It also "very much regrets any inconvenience caused". Which is nice. ®
