According to an outage tracking website, late on Monday network outages were reported across the United States by T-Mobile users. The disruption that affected some cellular services was quickly being addressed, the company said.
Efforts are underway on resolving the problem that had caused intermittent issues disrupting voice, messaging, and data services in several areas, the U.S. wireless carrier said. It did not specify how many users had been affected.
In just 24 hours, the number of outage reports peaked at more than 83,000 at around 10:20 pm ET (0320 GMT), Downdetector.com said, the website which tracks outages by collecting status reports from sources including errors submitted by users on its platform. By midnight, the numbers fell to about 9,000.
Promising to review the complaints, T-Mobile’s help page responded to Twitter messages from affected users. No details of the reason or extent of the outage were provided.
“Our teams are rapidly addressing a 3rd party fiber interruption issue that has intermittently impacted some voice, messaging, and data services in several areas,” T-Mobile’s President of Technology Neville Ray said on Twitter.
Downdetector also reported thousands of complaints of services of Verizon and AT&T being down. More than 2,000 unresolved incidents were reported for Verizon and more than 1,200 for AT&T at the peaks.
