It’s one of the most popular mobile networks in all of the UK but it seems EE is struggling this afternoon.
The mobile network has been down since 12:56 BST, according to Down Detector, with problems affecting users across the UK.
While the reason for the outage remains unclear, 43 percent of those who reported problems said they were having problems with mobile internet, 38 percent had no signal, and 19 percent had a total power outage.
An EE spokesman said: “Some customers are having trouble making calls and using data on our network.
“We are working to fix this as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.
“EE broadband and landline services are unaffected and customers can use Wi-Fi calling to stay connected.”

How is YOUR city doing? The UK’s best areas for mobile coverage are revealed – with Camden, Brent and Watford topping the list
Experts have identified the UK’s best and worst areas for coverage – with seven of the top ten areas in London.
Camden, Brent, Watford and Redbridge proved to be the areas with the best coverage, while Derry City and Strabane, North Ayrshire and Shetland were the worst.
“Cellular networks continue to evolve and improve over the years as more and more networks roll out towers across the country, improving the amount and quality of cellular coverage,” said Ben Branson, CEO of Fonehouse.
“Despite this, there are still areas where coverage is weaker than others because adoption has been hampered by technology availability.”
