Orange gives the green light
It's all working now - apparently
Orange UK tells us the network snafu that's been leaving customers with slow or broken data connections is now fixed, so any remaining problems aren't its fault.
Apparently the problems, which have plagued users for the last couple of days, were down to "an unusual software issue, which combined with a separate and localised hardware failure" to knock out some of the APNs and leave some customers disconnected.
Orange is keen to emphasise that the problems are nothing to do with the ongoing integration work with T-Mobile: Orange is quite capable of messing up the network on its own.
So it should all be working now, and if not then do let us know. ®
