Mobile Network Suffers Outage

Scilly’s Vodafone network is up and running again after a weekend of disruption for islands’ customers.

Spokeswoman Jane Frapwell, says a  piece of transmission hardware at their Telegraph mast failed but it was not related to poor weather or windy conditions.

The service was out of action on Saturday, Sunday and some of Monday

The mobile network has the strongest signal in Scilly and is favoured by island taxi operators and the majority of islanders.

Sylina Guesthouse proprietor, Sam Mallon, tells Radio Scilly News she is hoping for a bit of compensation. Sam diverts her landline to her mobile when she is out and says, “this is prime bookings time” for guesthouse owners.
