AT&T outage

Customers of T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T are affected by widespread cellular outages in the US.

AT&T outage: Around 7 a.m. ET on Thursday, tracking website Downdetector reported over 50,000 AT&T outages, with the most of the problems occurring in Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

According to the tracking website Downdetector, AT&T’s network experienced extensive outages across the US on Thursday morning, cutting off internet and cellphone connectivity.

Customers of Verizon and T-Mobile also reported problems, though they didn’t seem to be as extensive as those of AT&T.

Customers reported more than 32,000 AT&T outages on Thursday at around 4 a.m. ET. According to the website, reports decreased until rising once more to over 50,000 at around 7 a.m., with the most of the problems being reported in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Dallas.

Just before eight in the morning ET, that figure shot up to over 71,000.

As of 7 a.m. on Thursday, there were over 3,000 Verizon outages and just over 1,100 T-mobile outages reported.

The cause of the service interruption is unknown.

“Some of our customers are experiencing wireless service interruptions this morning,” AT&T stated in response to inquiries about the problem early on Thursday morning.

“We are working quickly to get their service back. Until service is restored, we recommend using Wi-Fi calling,” the business stated.

Customers throughout who have reported problems with their cell service have received responses from the firm on X.


Verizon stated on Thursday morning that the disruptions are affecting its customers’ attempts to contact another provider that is having problems rather than their network directly.

Additionally, T-Mobile reported early on Thursday that there was no outage and that service was restored. It is possible that customers using Downdetector to reach users on other networks is what caused the figures.

Concerns are raised by the outages since some people might not be able to contact 911 in an emergency.

The Fire Department of San Francisco announced on X that it was aware of a problem affecting AT&T wireless users’ ability to place and receive phone calls, including 911 calls.

The office stated, “The San Francisco 911 center is still operational.” “If you are an AT&T customer and are having trouble reaching 911, please try making a landline call. If that isn’t an option, kindly try contacting a friend or relative who has a different carrier and ask them to make a 911 call on your behalf.Similarly, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department in North Carolina, the Prince William County police department in Virginia, and the Office of Emergency Management & Communications in Chicago have all issued warnings on X informing the public about the outage and admitting that some customers were momentarily unable to contact 911.
