Three compensation offers after network problems

Three said they rectified the problem the next day, but admitted that some customers still had problems.

Three released a statement that said, “Due to technical difficulties with our voice, text and data services, some customers will experience intermittent service. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue and service is returning to normal, and we expect it to be resolved within the day.

Customers who have been affected by the outage are encouraged to contact Three’s customer service team by dialing 333, where issues will be judged on a case-by-case basis and compensation may be offered.

Ernest Doku, mobile expert at, said: “Three’s 10 million customers will have spat to find out that the network was down. Users first reported issues just before midnight, so it wouldn’t have taken three hours until almost nine the next morning to admit that he was “suffering from technical difficulties”.

Three described the problem as ‘intermittent’ meaning that some users were able to use their phones normally, while others said they could not make emergency calls. The network has yet to respond to users. suggestion customers on when the problem will be resolved, leaving millions of people unsure of when they will be able to make calls, send texts, or connect to the web from their mobile.

Cell phone users pay their bills every month and expect high quality service in return. Not being able to use your network for long periods of time is just not enough.
