Verizon Wireless Confirms 4G LTE Issues, Promises To Fix It Soon
Verizon Wireless engineers have been working to resolve an issue with 4GLTE service that is affecting some customers' 4G devices. 3G data and voice devices are unaffected. All customers' voice calls and text messages continue to go through. In the past 24 hours, some 4GLTE customers have reported their devices are operating on 3G data service where they would normally get 4G. Some have reported no issues, others that data access is either intermittent or unavailable. We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
It's not super common to see an outage so large that a wireless carrier makes a public announcement on it, but with a fledgling technology such as this, it's not super surprising. After all, the company's rolling out LTE at a breakneck pace. Have you have any issues connecting today? Have you gone into withdrawals from not being able to get your mobile LOLCAT fix?
