EE: Data goes TITSUP* for Brit mobile customers
Are we supposed to, like, read a book or something?
Updated EE customers have been hit by a nationwide data outage this morning, leaving grumbling UK commuters with nothing to mindlessly tap on their way to work.
According to Down Detector, problems began around 7am, with reports peaking at around around 9am.
Customers appear to be affected across the UK, including in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
In an update, EE said: "Some customers are experiencing problems when trying to use data services this morning. We are aware of this, and are working to resolve this as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
However, some folk were less than impressed about the lack of updates from EE.
Thank the heavens for the power of social media. @EE didn't or couldn't bother to update its followers on twitter about the #EEdown outage but #EE users tweeted about the problems and kept eachother updated👍— Zar (@Zar496) February 27, 2018
