Edition #01 - April 2012
giffgaff Outage
According to giffgaff, a burst mains water pipe caused a power outage, with many users left without service; including text, calls and data for up to 8 hours on Friday 16th March. This comes after an outage caused a loss of service for approximately 54 hours for some users from the evening of Monday 12th to Thursday 14th. The cause of this earlier outage was undisclosed, however coverage and updates were kept up by the educator team in the service updates notice board. In light of these recent issues, giffgaff recommends that users check the service updates board regularly for information, as not all users experience the same problem at the same time. In the event of another outage, users should check the Notice Board before raising a case with the agents.
