Many Vodafone customers in Australia have been left without reception after widespread reports of services crashing.

At about 4.30pm on Wednesday, reports of no service soared on the website DownDetector, with outages registered in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Adelaide.

Disgruntled customers took to social media to share their irritation, with one woman reporting she was having “major issues” with her network.

“I can’t make calls. Vodafone hasn’t said anything but DownDetector online indicated heaps of people with Vodafone are having problems at the moment,” the woman wrote.

“A couple of minutes ago my signal went to SOS only … Back to four bars but still can’t make calls.”

Another woman was stuck in a service black hole at a highly inconvenient time and said it was “so bad and ridiculous”.

“The worst part was I was in a phone screening call for a job that I’ve applied [sic] and really wanted it so much!” she wrote.

“This was really important to me and the line breaking is not helping at all!”
