If you live in the southeastern US and you’re wondering what’s going on with your cell service right now, know that you’re not the only one dealing with issues.
Several reports are coming in that show that all four major US carriers are experiencing outages across the southeastern US. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all acknowledged the issues either in statements or on social media. AT&T told Re/code that it’s “working as quickly as possible to restore service,” and Verizon says that its engineers are working to address connectivity issues in portions of Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
Exactly what’s causing the problems isn’t known, but a Sprint rep has said that a “local exchange provider” could be behind the issues. Whatever is happening, hopefully all four operators can get it figured out and taken care of soon, because this is a big outage that’s affecting the largest four US carriers in a large chunk of the US.
If you’re located in the southeastern US, are you having any issues with your service? Or are you lucky enough to have avoided the outage?
