It seems like Vodafone is once again struggling with keeping their networks up. They just had an outage in September and now another one today. RIM has confirmed that there is an outage impacting some BlackBerry Customers in EMEA but this is being caused by Vodafone service issues not RIM’s infrastructure. Vodafone confirmed that it was caused by a router error on their end and both RIM and Vodafone plan on finding a way to make sure it does not happen again.
Vodafone provided the following update to GigaOm:
Vodafone has come back to me with a couple more details. Firstly, the outage hit some, not all, of its BlackBerry-toting customers in the EMEA region. Secondly, it affected their BlackBerry services usage over both cellular and Wi-Fi connections.
