Brit holidaymakers forced to surf in the sea, not online
Three international roaming goes titsup
Holidaymakers hoping to surreptitiously surf the net from the beach with their Three mobiles were stranded when an outage killed their signal.
Web addicts abroad were forced to entertain their kids instead of staring into the soothing glow from their smartphones when a network that carries international traffic for Three fell over at the weekend.
"3 customers trying to use their phones and dongles abroad may have had trouble getting connected," a spokesperson told The Reg in an emailed statement. "We’re sorry for any disruption, but the provider responsible has assured us that the issue has now been resolved."
A Three punter in the US said his phone was unable to use international roaming on Friday while another in France was also knocked offline just before the weekend. ®
I go on holiday to get away from email, phones, work and all technology.
Leaving it all behind is like being born again. The only decisions I have to make is where to eat and what to drink, and I don't need tech for that.
sounds like it done them a favour
when you're on the beach, then maybe you should be thinking about surfing the waves or at least looking at them and relaxing instead of being plugged into the net.
I like the unplugged feeling of holidays, but then maybe I'm an old git these days !
