Cell Networks Down Nationwide

At&T, Verizon and T-Mobile users reported early Thursday that they are having network issues nationwide and in Canada.

The issue has left AT&T iPhone users stuck in SOS mode, meaning that users can only make calls to emergency services.

According to DownDetector, the spike in the outages occurred around 4am Eastern time and also effected some customers with Verizon, T-Mobile and UScellular.

The largest number of issues was reported by AT&T users, which spiked at 31,931 reports at 4:30am before again jumping just before 7:15am to over 51,000.

Cricket, which is also part of AT&T, reported having 11,000 users down, while 2,800 Verizon customers are experiencing outages, with a further 1,000 T-Mobile users reportedly also being affected.

Service disruptions have been reported in New York, Boston, Washington, Montreal, Honolulu, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco.

So far, the companies have not provided an explanation for the widespread outages.

Across the US, AT&T has 100 million American consumers on their service and boast on their site of having ‘the most reliable 5G network’.

In a statement, the company said: ‘Some of our customers are experiencing wireless service interruptions this morning.

‘We are working urgently to restore service to them. We encourage the use of Wi-Fi calling until service is restored.’

Nationwide, 911 operators have warned that the outage has impacted their ability to take calls.

San Francisco Fire Department issued a statement saying they had been made aware of the issue and urged citizens to use try calling from a landline.

The department added: ‘If that is not an option then please try to get ahold of a friend or family member who is a customer of a different carrier and ask them to call 911 on your behalf.’

The major cellphone companies have yet make any statement regarding the outages. It’s not clear what the caused of the problem.

Despite this, AT&T agents have been responding to tweets from angered users over their lake of connectivity.

Other smaller providers including Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk also reported similar outages.

WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that this is the second time in a week that the region’s Verizon customers have experienced an outage.

In Orlando, the city’s Fox-affiliate confirmed that its reporters in the field were having trouble making contact.

While in Tampa, some users told WFLA that their phone service went out as early as 2am.

Customers in New Orleans reported that while calling was impossible, texting appeared to be working.

On social media, customers raged at the company over the lack of service.

One user posted: ‘AT&T is literally one of the most expensive phone companies, & y’all have the audacity to have a service outage for hours with zero updates being given to your customers? Fix it & fix it now.’

A spokesperson for T-Mobile told DailyMail.com: ‘We did not experience an outage. Our network is operating normally.

‘Down Detector is likely reflecting challenges our customers were having attempting to connect to users on other networks.’

While a Verizon spokesperson said: ‘Verizon’s network is operating normally.

‘Some customers experienced issues this morning when calling or texting with customers served by another carrier. We are continuing to monitor the situation.’

    Isn’t globalism and open borders great?

    • GI Bride says:

      Another of the borders the USA government is neglecting is Alaska & our Canadian borders.
      Most of the settlements of unvetted people from the Middle East & Africa, Obama/Biden allowed into USA are settled in states like Michigan, & Wisconsin. We probably have many that have crossed into the USA thru Canada unnoticed to join those settlements
      Remember a reporter found & informed the FBI that he had found armed fenced training camps. The FBI acknowledged that there were 22 Middle Eastern training camps in 9 states at that time. Plus, a large one across the southern border in Mexico
      The Chinese have purchased a lot of land also with easy access from Canada. With a lot of land adjacent to many of the USA military bases. & Hi-Tech research companies
      The USA government has done nothing to stop this or confiscate & repossess these lands & companies.

  • True Patriot says:

    This was nothing but a test of the infiltrated Chinese army that has been crossing our borders. I figure a good estimate is that they probably have a modern day sapper battalion well established that probably is setting their selves up across our country marking, power station, towers, process plants for food and fuel and infrastructures.

    • True Patriot says:

      ps: lets don’t forget the spy balloon that ol Joe let them fly across our country marking missile silos and bases. That had to be a good payment of cash to the Bidens
