Having gone from full bars 4G yesterday to fluctuating between none and 2 from 7am this morning, wondering if anyone else is having the same issue in the Albany/Greenhithe area?  Vodafone is stating there are no towers reporting issues.  Reboot of phone and sim in another phone does not give any different results.  No errors on the devices just bad signal.

Ah I see.  I couldn't see anything related to it on the Vodafone website and the support team at Vodafone call centre were'nt aware of anything either.  Was this communicated?

It's BAU work telling front line staff about each and every site upgrade that happens would be info overload

Agreed, but if there was a list they could refer to so that they could inform the customer when they call it would be much better.  In saying that, there should be something on the planned outage list on the Vodafone site to reduce users calling about those outages.


Awesome

Customer impacting changes should always be communicated somewhere. VFAU do a good job of this on their website. Heaps of data, but it's there if you need to check.

Depending on location customers will get an SMS if no over lapping coverage

This site has over lapping coverage from 3 sites just off the top of my head
(I know Greenhithe very well)
