Published on May 21st, 2019 by Duncan McClean.

EE customers are currently having issues with phoning people through 4G throughout the UK. The issue was initially reported from London, however it seems like the issue is wide spread and is affecting customers everywhere in the country.

An EE Spokesperson commented on the issue on social media.

Many customers have complained on social media and have reported the issue on Down Detector, with over 1000 reports at the time of writing.

The outage seems to be covering areas including London, Birmingham and Glasgow.

Customers can get round the outage by using Whatsapp Voice Calling instead of usual 4G calling. This works because 4G internet is still online.
