EE down: hundreds of customers unable to make phone calls as network struggles | The Sun

HUNDREDS of EE customers say that they are without mobile services and are unable to make calls and browse the web.

Problems started on Thursday afternoon, with more than 757 issues logged by EE customers on the outage detection site Down Detector.

Over 66% of the customers reported that they have had issues with their mobile phone service.

The issue seems to be most prevalent in London, Manchester and Cardiff, among other locations.

Affected customers have taken to Twitter to express their frustration at the outage.

One user said: "EE are there issues with the network? Calls are not working for some reason?"

Can I get compensation?

There is compensation on offer if you are a customer affected by broadband outages.

But this is unfortunately not usually the case for mobile networks.

However, you may still be entitled to compensation from EE if you experience a mobile phone outage.

EE has previously said any customers affected by outages can contact its customer service team who will look at compensation on a case-by-case basis.

You can get in touch with EE by phone, post or online.

You can also speak to EE via its live chat service.

Other mobile phone companies such as Three have previously given customers up to £20 off their bills following a nine-hour signal failure.

Ofcom says depending on the circumstances, your phone provider may have to offer you money back while repairs are being made leading to outages.

And if repairs take longer, you may be entitled to an additional refund or account credit.
