CUSTOMERS ON THE Three network might be struggling to get on the internet today, as the mobile operator has admitted that it's having data issues.

Three tweeted on Wednesday morning that its network is suffering from "internet issues", leaving customers unable to access the web on their Three smartphone or tablet - unless they are using WiFi, of course.

We can confirm these problems, with two of us here at The INQUIRER are unable to access data on our Three mobiles. We're not the only ones, as irked Three customers have been quick to jump onto Twitter to bemoan the issues.

One unhappy Three customer said, "Panic this morning as I can't get onto the Internet. Think Three's network is borked," while another added, "I love how Three can't give me internet service/3G but are quick enough to tell me my latest phone bill is up."

It's unclear how many Three users have been affected by the downtime, and it's also not clear what has caused the network to go titsup. However, it's thought the issues could be related to the network's 4G rollout, which is presently underway across parts of the UK.

Three has yet to respond to our request for comment, but we'll update this when we hear more.

Update
Three's data network seems to be back up and running for some, and it working for us here in London. Three is still to reveal what caused the issues. µ
