Verizon confirms another data outage

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 22 Dec 2011 0:12

Verizon confirms another data outage Verizon Wireless has confirmed yet another nationwide data outage today.
Early this morning, subscribers were greeted with spotty 3G and 4G connections, especially in large metro areas like NYC and San Francisco. The company began working on the issues immediately, and mainly had them solved by mid-day.

Adds a spokesman: "Verizon Wireless 4G LTE service is returning to normal this morning after company engineers worked to resolve an issue with the 4G network during the early morning hours today."

In early December, customers complained of slow speeds on their devices, which could not connect to 4G and were stuck on 3G. Verizon resolved that issue within a day.

Verizon is known to promote its "stable" network as a reason for its industry-high prices.
