O2 network experiencing a 'rush hour'

O2 has provided this update on its website to customers regarding the technical fault on its network:

Around 10% of our customers have been unable to make or receive calls, or use data. The good news? The cause of the fault was identified and fixed this afternoon.

The bad news? Due to high phone use during the “rush hour” early evening period customers may experience intermittent performance as full service comes back for everyone.

We would like to reassure those customers still affected that we are working as hard as we can to restore normal service to everyone.
