UK carrier EE is experiencing some widespread downtime this evening, with many customers reporting they've been unable to connect to the network since around 7pm UK time. Curiously, the issue seems to be SIM-specific, with some accounts with multiple SIMs seeing an outage on one, but not the other. EE says it's aware of the issue and is working on a fix.

The 4G-centric operator isn't the only major UK operator to experience service outage recently — both O2 and Three have experienced similar problems for the past year.

If you're on EE, hit the comments and let us know if you're affected by today's outage.

EE experiencing widespread outage


For me they're shit most of the time and I'm in London. So no, haven't really noticed any downtime.

Everything's completely dead for me. Richard says he's been knocked down to GRPS where he'd usually have HSPA or LTE.

Everything is completely down for me too. My g/f who is sat next time to me with the same nexus 5 is perfectly fine. I'm on 4g ee, she's on T-Mobile full Monty package. Very weird...

I'm with EE and have had no signal since about 6:30pm. My wife however, also on EE has had and continues to have a signal. Can't explain that.

No issue here on their 10gig plan, rocking 32mb a second on last speed test ( nexus 5 )

Only lost my data services, didn't even notice until I saw this article (thanks to WiFi). All working fine now on 4G after a quick aeroplane mode toggle.......... Until next time anyway.
