Alwin Henseler (640539) writes "Telecom provider Vodafone is currently suffering a massive network outage. A quarter of Vodafone mobile customers is said to be affected, that is: unable to make or receive calls (or SMS messages). This has been ongoing for much of the afternoon, and no word yet on when the outage will end. Few sources reporting the outage can be found, see here for Google translation of report on Dutch news site Nu.nl. Vodafone websites in UK and the Netherlands are also offline."
