#Vodafone services #worldwide hit by #internet failure


Vodafone customers worldwide have faced disruption to their mobile internet and broadband services because of a glitch.

Users in the UK, Ireland, Portugal, Germany, Greece and Italy took to social media – despite connectivity difficulties – to say there were problems just before 3pm UK time.

The company later confirmed the failure of an international link also meant disruption further afield – in Australia and India.

A spokesperson said: “We aware that some customers are experiencing issues with their mobile data and broadband services.

“Our engineers are working hard to fix the issue and services are now being restored.

“This could take some time before they are working as normal. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

It is understood the company was initially re-routing internet traffic to get around the problem.

Vodafone will be desperate to avoid PR disasters at a time when it is looking to recover from a big annual loss and invest in the 5G future at the same time.

The glitch happened just weeks before Vodafone in the UK is due to launch of its first 5G services.

The 5G fanfare – slated for 3 July – will be limited to seven cities initially.

“For those that are travelling to the FIFA tournament, Russia is one of Vodafone’s ‘Roam Further’ destinations – which, for £6 a day, allows customers to use their UK texts, calls and data allowance and then only actually pay on the days when using your phone. Bolt-ons are available but even the out of allowance costs are hugely competitive – although those on Basics SIM-only packages won’t be able to roam,” explained Mr. Doku.
Why not contact Vodafone to get your mobile phone roaming up & running for the World Cup
