UK based mobile network operator, O2 suffered a major network outage over the weekend that left customers without phone signal across the country.
The government's business secretary, Sajid Javid was one of the many affected who also took to Twitter to publicly berate the company.
He tweeted "No signal O2. Please sort it out"
Other customers also took to Twitter to complain that they had been without phone service for as much as 5 hours.
In a series of tweets, O2 said: "We're working flat out (and upright too) to get these fixed. Sorry for the problems,"
A spokesman for O2 later said: "We are aware of isolated instances across the UK where some O2 customers are currently experiencing intermittent service. We are investigating the situation and will update as soon as possible."
The spokesman later added: "Further to our previous message where some O2 customers were experiencing intermittent network service, we have taken steps to minimise the impact and some customers have seen their service return. We apologise for any inconvenience and continue to do all we can to restore service for customers who remain impacted."
