Thousands of Three customers in the UK were left without service this morning (February 12) after issues regarding the provider's mobile network were reported on Downdetector.

At around 11.30am, there was a peak of 12,674 reports with various problems - 36% had “no network” and 33% had “no service”.

But Three has now issued a statement to its UK customers, apologising for “the issues with service over the past few days.”

It comes as there appears to have been problems with the network only yesterday (February 11), as @ThreeUK tweeted: “Following an issue with our network for several customers, services have now recovered. If any customer is still having an issue, they should fully restart their device to reconnect to our network. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

Another posted: "Mines down, tried to check on your site and it told me my postcode wasn't valid. I tried every combination of my postcode I could think off. Still no joy, then it asks me to do a survey with how happy I was with the site. Never wanted to leave feedback more.”

Someone who needed to use their phone for travel directions asked: “How are you going to compensate customers for this most recent outage? It's a complete blackout and it's just ridiculous. Trying to navigate my trip to London and can't even access Google maps!”
