Three Mobile users fume as thousands left with no mobile signal

UK mobile network operator Three has confirmed it is experiencing widespread network issues that could affect thousands of customers up and down the country. Many frustrated customers took to social media to vent their annoyance at not being able to use any of the call, text, or data services on their phones.

According to popular internet service outage website Down Detector, reports of problems with Three UK’s network began at about 8am this morning and were peaking with thousands of complaints by 3pm.

Three’s official X, formerly Twitter, account posted at 2:51pm on Friday informing the public of the outage:

“Hope there’ll be some sort of compensation for this, bit of a joke,” X user @stephenprice96 said, while @joe_shimmin commented, “And yet network status says no issues!! Sort it out. No service at all”.

“Anyone else having issues with three network. I’ve had no signal for hours now!!” @Hannahli1989 posted on X, while fellow social media user @MikeyCbg said, “Affecting me now, for the third time today. @ThreeUK please update your network status tool to reflect this. I wasted a lot of time checking out my phone earlier.”

Three has not said what the cause of the apparent issue is, or how many customers are affected and in which areas of the UK.
