O2 has been apologizing to Londoners lately for the poor state of its mobile network in the city. The wireless carrier is blaming the iPhone and the glut of bandwidth its users consume for the network issues.

Rather than trying to simply charge customers more to prevent them from using the bandwidth like AT&T in America, O2 has announced that it will spend hundreds of millions of pounds in 2010 to prevent the outages from happening again.

O2 says it has been overwhelmed by the "absolute explosion" of customers surfing the web on the iPhone and other smartphones. At least they admit the problem and are working to fix it.
