CUSTOMERS WHO rely on the O2 mobile network are waking up to a whole crock of bork this morning, as a major outage affects customers on the United Kingdom number two provider and its dependencies.

The issue has affected an estimated 32 million people, as O2 also provides services for Sky, Tesco, Lycamobile, and Giffgaff mobile networks.

The network problems have affected more than O2 customers, hitting other services that rely on the data.

Mobile network O2 has said it is investigating a technical fault that has left thousands of mobile customers unable to get online.

O2 said its technical teams are working with its supplier's teams to fix the problem.

Calls are still working, O2 said.

The outage also has serious implications for places that rely upon the O2 network for real-time informational services, as reported by the Independent.

The company has described it as a "top priority" and ahs apologised for the inconvenience, but an estimated time of when the O2 network will be working again hasn't been given. Londoners, for example, are finding that the Countdown timers at bus stops are all crippled as they can't communicate with London's transport executive, TfL.

Customers have been encouraged to use WiFi whenever possible if they need internet access before the problems have been fixed.

Writing on Twitter, O2 said this morning: "Outage Update: One of our third party suppliers has identified a software issue in their system".
