Monitoring

A small number of customers continue to report occasional issues using the CabCard Pocket 3G terminal on the Three UK network.

If you find that your terminal’s connection is slow, please manually select an alternative network. We recommend O2 or Vodafone if available.

Update

We understand that the issue with Three UK network connections is still ongoing and sporadically affecting a small number of customers.

We recommend any customers experiencing issues, such as slow connection speeds on their POS terminal, should manually select an alternative network using the instructions provided here.

We recommend connecting to O2 or Vodafone. Do not connect to EE or Three UK.

We will continue to monitor the situation but we do not anticipate the network will take any steps to remediate this, therefore we recommend customers should proactively take steps to select a network other than Three UK to prevent any issues processing transactions.

Issue

We have received reports this morning that customers are experiencing difficulties processing card payments using CabCard POS terminals.

On further investigation, it seems that the affected terminals were using the Three (UK) network. Switching to a different network resolves the issue.

We therefore recommend that customers should consider proactively switching their terminal to a different network using the manual network selection feature. Full instructions can be found on our website.

We recommend connecting to O2 or Vodafone. Do not connect to EE or Three UK.

We advise you to revert back to automatic network selection after a few hours by following the instructions on our website.
