    I've just been reading about 3's "Mobile Meltdown" this afternoon. You may have to wait until they can fix it I guess.

    Seems a biggie. If I will be working the next three days Im l:m screwed as I need to log in constantly on a site when out, and I have only tethering at home. Others probably a lot worse. EE always had the best coverage and speed, at least before they were taken over. I may look around as I'm free to change.

    The BBC were behind the curve on this one, it's bigger than they say, but this is helpful :

    "History shows that once service is restored people quickly forget about the issues," said Ben Wood, an analyst at the CCS Insight consultancy.

    "The challenge for Three UK will be getting its network back online reliably. Often it can take time for things to stabilise after such a massive outage, which can lead to intermittent service for a period of time after the original problems."

    It's all a bit academic for me anyway, because my carrier is China Unicom. Even when I'm in the UK, I'm still using that carrier(roaming).

    But I guess it's a regular issue that needs widespread awareness if people worldwide or trying to contact someone on a down network / carrier via phone or data and don't know why they cannot.

    Seems to be on the mend according to reports.

    ------

    and I'm now back on 4G at 12:05 so 12.5 hours out for me.
