Major phone networks in the UK are having issues to keep up with the demand as people work from home to avoid the coronavirus. 

According to DownDetector, O2, EE, Vodafone and 3 are among those worst affected just one day after Boris Johnson advised Britons to avoid offices and non-essential travel.

O2 have released a statement regarding the poor service nationwide. 

They said: "We are aware that some customers may be experiencing issues with out voice service. Our technical teams are investigating. We apologise for any inconvenience. Updates will be shared as soon as they are available".
