Vodafone broadband customers around the country have been experiencing service outages this evening.

A spokesperson for Vodafone told RTÉ that the issue had now been identified and they are in the process of restoring services.

Customers have taken to social media to complain about the breakdown.

The spokesperson said the company is experiencing interruptions on some of its data services, but technical teams are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

A Vodafone spokesperson said late this evening that traffic has increased significantly and customers are coming back online now.

It will take some time to get everyone up and running, but they are working on it as a priority, said the spokesperson.
