O2 4G network down across the UK

O2 a division of Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica blamed a third-party supplier for a

O2 customers should be able to use their phones by tomorrow, the company said.

The problems mean that the companies that share its network - such as GiffGaff, Sky Mobile and Tesco Mobile - are also being hit by the problems. They're now working hard to resolve the issue so we would imagine it won't be too long before its back up.

According to Ericsson, the issues were within nodes in the core network, which rippled out to affect "a limited number of customers" using particular software versions from the country.

Angus Council tweeted: "All parking meters in our off -street vehicle parks are unavailable for use due to network issues which are now affecting a number of services UK-wide. We work hard to ensure that our customers can limit the impact and restore their services as soon as possible", Borje Ekholm, president and CEO of Ericsson, said.

Voice calls are working OK.




"Our technical teams are working on the issue with high priority".

O2 confirmed a third party equipment supplier - identified as Swedish manufacturer Ericsson in some reports - identified a global software issue in their system which has impacted the operator and other operators around the world. Work is now ongoing to fix the fault and customers are being encouraged to use wi-fi where possible.

And it's not just smartphone users that are having problems; O2's data network also provides the connectivity for other services including real time information on London's buses.

However, when the network was down for seven hours in 2015, the company did not offer compensation to all customers, instead saying payouts would be assessed on a "case-by-case" basis.
