Clever Con @O2

Is it just me (and four others) that have suddenly found that there is no longer any 3G signal in Tenbury, in fact often no 2G signal either?

Until a few weeks ago, I was able to get an EDGE data signal and a strong "4 bars" phone signal.

Then, almost nothing.

Complaints to O2 get returned as nothing wrong here!  Their website now shows that Tenbury only gets a 2G signal, so they are supplying what they are advertising!

I cannot categorically say what their website used to say, but I've been with their network for many years and apart from the odd engineering fault had a good service.  Now I struggle to make a call outdoors.

Anyone else having problems?

Any recommendations where to try next?

Update: 11th August

It seems that EDGE travels by 2G, so the map is probably correct.  Also the local transmitter has come back online. (Officially it never went off!) My phone is now picking up the EDGE signal and once again knows I'm in Tenbury not Woofferton (the next nearest mast)
