What is the UK MNO Monitor?

We listen to the conversations people have on Twitter about their UK mobile phone network operator (MNO), looking for common themes and the sentiment.

For each mobile network operator, we compare this to a 'typical day' to create a service indicator and to highlight key categories of discussion. Please use this site as a guide for how well network and customer services are performing, but always check with your mobile operator for information on specific issues.


Our headline, live indicator based on customer feedback. This combines the volume of Twitter based feedback with the nature of the conversations to ascertain how well the operator is performing against 'typical levels'.
