Mobile phone users have been left without reception after a further collapse in the town’s telecommunications which is still to be resolved.
This afternoon (Monday), hundreds of angry EE and Three customers in Saffron Walden affected by the mobile blackout took to social media to vent their frustration – the third time users have consistently lost reception in as many months.
IT specialists Force 36, based on Elizabeth Close, wrote to EE on Twitter to ask for a resolution, including a plea for another telephone mast.
“How does Saffron Walden petition you for a new mast?” they asked the phone company, before saying they had solved their problem by acquiring an O2 SIM card.
EE told the Reporter on Twitter that engineers were working to restore service, though there was no time given on when that would be.
