(Reuters) – Vodafone on Monday said it resolved an outage that impacted thousands of its home broadband service users in the United Kingdom, after hours of downtime.
“We have now fixed the issue impacting just over 1% of our home broadband customers today. Customers should already be seeing their connectivity return,” the company told Reuters in an emailed statement.
Vodafone has about 1.2 million broadband customers in the UK.
According to outage tracking website Downdetector.com, users experienced issues with the service from about 07:00 GMT.
Last week telecoms firm Virgin Media experienced broadband outages in Britain, with tens of thousands of customers reporting internet access problems.
