Earlier today Netflix also went offline for around an hour. 

Virgin crashed yesterday at almost the exact same time, with thousands of user complaints around midday.    

Yesterday’s outage was primarily with the mobile network, with people having problems with 4G, making and receiving calls and sending messages.
