I see the CEO of O2 has dropped Ericsson as the 3rd party to blame.

I pay a small fortune each month to be able to use a service , surely the least I can expect is to actually use that service?

People demanding compensation for a network outage.

One post on the O2 twitter was complaining about being unable to complete a 7 day run on Pokemon (whatever that means). Wanted 3 months free data as compensation.

What is the world coming to.

Im sure O2 will compensate those who have had their living affected by this but Jesus Christ, get a grip.

**** happens, networks go down. Its provided as a service but I'm sure they didn't do it on purpose and believe me, when they say they are trying to fix it then they will be.

How much of a small fortune do you actually pay? Divide it by 30, then by 24. That's roughly how much you pay for that service by the hour. Now just multiply that by the amount of hours you've been without that service and there's the figure you should be asking for.

For example...

I pay O2 £11 a month on a sim only deal. 11/30 = .36p per day. .36/24 = 0.015p per hour. if it goes down for 15 hours then that 15 x .015 = about 22 and a half pence.

Dont think I'll bother.

Seriously, we are turning into Americans.

You do realise that legions of people haven't been able to take multiple selfies today, tweet earth-shattering messages AND they've actually had to talk to other people. The poor ba*stards.
I think we should all have a minutes silence for all of their pain today.

You probably pay **** all to use the service as Mixture has demonstrated below.

You're paying a small fortune for your handset most probably, which is perfectly usable, just with a slightly reduced functionality when you're out the house...

Going back a few years we used to get the odd power cut, not that often but a few times a year. We used to light a few candles, laugh a lot and maybe get a board game out until the lights came back on. Either that or just go to bed early and sleep until the sun came up.

Basically, treated electricity as a luxury of modern life and dealt with it when it wasn't available.

Just minding my own business playing Pokemon Go at the end of my road and some chavs shouted at me from their car as they drove past, it scared the crap out of me. Why can't people leave me alone?

Well, this was irritating.
I bought some xmas sweets from Morrisons.
Liquorice pieces coated in white chocolate. Two for £4. If you like liquorice & white chocolate, what's not to like..
Started eating them tonight. At first, what an amazing taste. I thought, I must go on kumb & extoll their virtue.
I carried on eating them & a few minutes later, a strange taste started coming through & the only thing that came to mind was, 'Joy Joys Mit Iodine'.
They can't have Iodine in them, can they?, as I looked at the ingredients.
No, they haven't, but they've got bleedin' Ammonium Chloride in them, so it's probably an Ammonia taste that I'm getting. Unless Iodine has got in somewhere else, like the molasses...
I can't believe how something can go from tasting lovely to vile, in a matter of minutes.
They'll be going straight back.

I had that in one of the first houses I ever purchased (semi detached), honestly Daniel son, I know they are new neighbours and you want to get on etc, but you have to deal with this **** now, otherwise it could turn nasty and you could end up headbutting your neighbour...

I really enjoyed yesterdays network outage, it was quite liberating not being kept in touch with the World.
They should make it an annual event.


As for the outage itself, I cant believe that a company the size of Ericsson doesnt have decent failover in place. I would guess that this is all due to some change that got put in overnight.
24 hours to fix really is unacceptable these days.

I have a mate who loves going down on a smelly lady garden, his preferred taste :thdn:

If it's just a rampant got to have you rip your clothes off session then fair enough, otherwise, clean & fresh is my preferred choice. I do like my missus straight from the gym though, it's her in her gym clothes all sweaty that gives me the proper horn.
