T-Mobile data service collapses

Feeling left out by robust network

The essential guide to IT transformation

T-Mobile joined the ranks of proper mobile operators with its own inadequately-explained network outage - losing data connectivity across its network for around four hours yesterday morning.

The outage left BlackBerry users, among others, disconnected and reliant on actually calling people up and speaking to them in order to stay in touch.

But all is now fixed, and T-Mobile tells us that "...steps have been taken to prevent a reoccurrence". So that's alright, then.

T-Mobile now join the likes ofOrange and Vodafone in thinking we'll take their word for it that they've fixed all their problems, though none are as extreme as 3 Ireland, which is still assuring everyone that its Mobile Broadband service is working perfectly in the face of irrefutable evidence to the contrary.

So now we're just waiting for the O2 network to fail without explanation and we'll have a full set, though the purists might want to see the 3UK network falling over too, just for completeness. ®
