Mobile Operators Run Into Network Issues Over [pcworld.com] Excessive Data Demands
O2, one of the leading providers of wireless service in the United Kingdom, has apologized to customers for recent network issues including the inability to make or receive calls, or transmit data. Like AT&T, the United States exclusive iPhone provider, O2 blames the excessive data demands of the iPhone for crippling the network.
On this side of the pond, AT&T has been facing mounting criticism regarding its network. Users have been frustrated by dropped calls, slow data transmission, and poor signal quality--especially in major metropolitan areas like San Francisco and New York. A brief inability for NY residents to purchase the iPhone from AT&T online yesterday prompted speculation that AT&T might be attempting to throttle data usage by limiting iPhone availability
