Are people going to be compensated for the lack of service? Having to use wifi elsewhere, could not recieve an important phonecall or even make one. Messages were all over the place. My daughter couldn't even reach me to tell me if she home safe or not. Not good enough for the length of time it was off. I know issues happen but people live off their phones these days myself included and especially to get in touch with their children.

Details have not been announced @jmb82 

 

But there is an announcement, in the Announcements forum of all places, about what giffgaff is doing to say sorry. See:

So we pay for a service it go's down and no one can use there phone for calls texts or internet and we don't get compensation? Think it might be time to change providers?
