This outage comes days after the news that Three is putting up its prices.
The UK network began messaging customers earlier this week the news that costs were increasing in 2017.
One text received by a Three cutsomer read: "Hi, you may remember that we review your price each year in line with RPI. In May your price will increase by 2.6%."
