Update 2: According to some Twitter reports there has been two fiber optic lines cut somewhere causing outages in LA, AL, GA, FL and MS. This explains today’s outage, but what about the multiple other outages in the region this week?
UPDATE: Reports are that AT&T Customer Service Reps are stating the outages are due to extra strains on the network due to the BP oil spill clean up effort s…really AT&T?
For the second time in a week the AT&T’s 3g network is down in the southeast . Around 2 o’clock pm central standard time AT&T’s 3g network went down reportedly for the entire southeast area of the United States . While I’m not sure what the issue is, I know a lot of iPhone users on AT&T that would love to move over to Verizon . AT&T’s 3g network was also down in the same region this past sunday for the entire day. At the D8 conference Steve Jobs said the AT&T network would get worse before it gets better, is that what we are seeing now? If so hopefully the “better” part will be sooner than later.
Is AT&T data down in your area? If so let us know in the comments.
On a side note, I’m posting this from a VZW Incredible with four bars of 3g service, just saying.
