It's not the first time Three has suffered an outage.
In December, the mobile and broadband provider went down at various locations across the UK.
At its peak, there were more than 900 reported issues.
In May, more than 3,000 customers were reporting issues with its network.
Can I get compensation if I have no phone signal?
There is no automatic compensation scheme for mobile networks like there is for broadband and landline firms.
But that doesn't necessarily mean you won't get any compensation if your signal cuts out.
Previously, Three has given customers up to £20 off their bills following a nine-hour signal failure.
You should keep a note of how long the outage lasts for, and any inconvenience it causes you.
If you have to spend any money due to the outage, make sure you keep evidence of that, too.
