UK mobile network operator EE suffered a significant network outage last night that lasted in some cases for as much as 12 hours.
Hundreds of digruntled users took to Twitter to express their frustration with the company, and some are still reporting problems, although EE says that the issue has been fixed.
Initially, the company used its own Twitter account to confirm that "There seems to be some Gremlins in the system - we're aware of a network outage at the moment & working hard to fix."
EE is not yet able to say what caused the network outage.
An EE spokesperson said: "Last night's technical issue that caused a small proportion of our customers to experience problems with their signal has been resolved and all customers are now receiving a normal service."
