I'm in Leytonstone and i'm occasionally getting some network signal showing on my mobile but I haven't been able to make a call yet.
There was previously an East London area outage like this on 30th March and I had days of intermittent network signal - mostly no signal.
At that time the O2 status page never stated what the problem was.

id better text the girlfriend before i go back home to walthamstow from work (South Kensington seems to be fine) that I'm not ignoring her then

 

amazing that o2 (and who was it recently who got a site broken into and damaged) dont have backup systems that can immediately come into operation

I think that they do, but the nature of the theft/vandalism has slowed that down

giffgaff is getting back on track slowly because some of my friends from northgreewich area responded a few hours ago and after some time i also got my network back on routine. so i think it will be back on track soon
