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.
