Another Nationwide Verizon 4G LTE Outage Happening Now? (Updated)

We are just crawling out of bed here on the west coast, but according to the massive amount of unread emails in our inbox, a nationwide 4G LTE outage happened last night around 2AM. It’s tough to tell if the network is still down as all seems groovy here, 4G signal actually stronger than normal.

Update: I spoke too soon, down to just 3G now here in Portland. And according to the comments, there is a pretty large group of you out there that are without 4G. We are going on 5+ hours here of downtime – come on Verizon.

Update 8:42AM:  4G seems to be back up here in Portland. Anyone else?

Update 9:30AM:  Verizon has released a statement:

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. Throughout this time, 4G LTE customers were able to make voice calls and send and receive text messages. The 3G data network operated normally.

So let us know if you are still experiencing data issues.

    I had no internet from 1 am to at least 7:30 am. Galaxy nexus was down for about an hour at 2 pm today. I also have a Droid X and it appears to not have had any issues, I know that it’s a 3G phone!

    My phone still says 3G, will reboot and see if it changes.

      4G is back, had to reboot the phone though. First I tried switching to CDMA only then back to LTE/CDMA with no effect.

    I see 4g every once in a while but when I go on the web it bounces back to 3g. Cali

    After spending three days on my Nexus setting everything up, last night I couldn’t sleep and around 1 am I noticed I had no internet and I messed with it forever! I googled and saw nothing on outages and decided to finally give up and master reset my phone. 🙁 I spent hours later putting everything back on using my WI-FI only and to find this out when I woke up I was pretty upset. If only I knew it was down somehow, I guess I could have been patient but I was having an issue with Google music cutting out all the time anyway. Anyone else had google music not work properly and cut out, even on downloaded songs on the Galaxy Nexus?

      Patience, grasshoppah. I lost data/sim card error, too, but instead of diddling my phone, I watched twitter and DL for some posting and of course, they came through. =)

      Even called  VZW tech support, which was about as useful as having poo on my shoe. Dude didn’t know about outage two weeks ago, or today.

  • Jamarcus White

    Still no 4G here in Cincinnati as of 5:36pm

  • Tkimball00

    3:33pm still seems to be no 4G here in phx AZ. Of course my data drops on my bionic more since the update (not mystery update since I never received that one). I’ve switched data on and off but nothing.

      Right…I had better 4G connectivity before the 5.5.893 update.
