A number of banks, streaming sites and the PlayStation Network are currently offline following a global outage.

The problem appears to have started to take its toll with a range of services around 5 p.m. this afternoon.

Website Tracking DownDetector has logged tens of thousands of user reports from dozens of popular apps and websites.

More than 20,000 gamers have complained that the PlayStation Network, which allows PS4 and PS5 owners to play online, is down.

To compound their frustration, they were also hit with a Steam outage. Steam is a popular game store used by PC owners.

Several UK bank websites are also offline, including HSBC, Barclays, Lloyds and Halifax.

The cause of the problem is unclear.

But a popular domain name service provider, Akamai, said it was “going through a service disruption.”

Many affected websites are listed on its customer page.

In a tweet, the company said, “Akamai is experiencing a downtime. We are actively investigating the issue and will provide an update in 30 minutes. ‘

A follow-up message said, “We have implemented a fix for this issue and based on current observations the service is resuming normal operations. We will continue to monitor to ensure the impact has been fully mitigated.

Affected websites appear to be returning to normal, with DownDetector now reporting a sharp drop in complaints.
