A Vodafone spokesperson said: “We’re aware some customers are experiencing intermittent issues using our network. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, our team is working hard to fix the issue and we hope to have it resolved quickly.”

Tracking website Down Detector revealed thousands of complaints from users affected by a range of issues.

However, Vodafone data issues were present right across the UK.

As a result, many customers have taken to social media to complain about the issue. One user said she is “surprised” by the issue as “Vodafone UK is normally reliable and quite a good network. Anyways Vodafone UK will fix the problem”, she added.

Another user added: “Alarmed that Vodafone seems to be so down that their system can’t text me a security code to log into my account. So it seems to be a lot worse than just their signal being down.”
