Verizon 4G LTE down nation-wide again?

Verizon 4G LTE down nation-wide again?
Verizon’s blazing fast LTE network is obviously struggling today with users across different states complaining 4G data is down on their devices. Both western and eastern states are affected - New York, Virginia, Arizona, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Iowa, Georgia, texas Pennsylvania and Ohio are all included, so it basically seems like a nation-wide outage.

Verizon’s 4G network has experienced a couple of those hits with data down on a couple of occasions last year, but in 2012 it’s the first time we’ve heard about a wide-scale outage.

There are no official statements from the company, but we guess it will respond soon and hopefully fix the issue. Let us know whether you are affected by the outage and where are you located in the comments below.

Update: Verizon followed up with a tweet saying that "after a brief issue this morning, 4G LTE service is fully restored."

That's odd, I still had/ have LTE service on my phone and not one hiccup. It still has it as I'm typing right now. I'm in NYC Queens to Midtown.

Then again, I haven't suffered through any of the past outages.

Everyone crying over a technology still in its pampers. If you still have 3G you'll still get your data, just a little slower. Wow, what have we become? We still have it made compared to a decade ago.

Wrong, it knocks my 3g off too. With my TB it didn't, with the bionic, it does.

If you're unlocked and rooted, try a custom ROM such as AOKP and a kernel such as Franco's.

I dont know what Verizon is doing, but i havent seen a company with so many issues within a short amount of time!! Why spend billions to revamp your network when it keeps having issues...........especially their LTE service which has gained a ton of customers over AT&T and Sprint. Hopefully they'll resolve this issue or they'll start losing customers

You've never seen a company that had brand new technology fail a few times the first year it's deployed? Where have you been?

LTE is not only new tech to VZW but nobody has expanded this kind of network this fast in the US before. There are bound to be problems here and there..

Some of you AT&T custmoers make me laugh. There was been about 7 outages in the last year, totaling 7 days out of 365 where only VZW's 4G was not working ...and you think that makes AT&T better??? Whatever you have to tell yourself to justify paying VZW prices while getting T-Mobile coverage.

Funny how the network came back up hours ago and this story has yet to be updated. and you wonder why some accuse you guys of being att-iphone users.

you guys are lucky to at least have LTE (although problematic right now)..

here in Singapore, there's only 3G, and the carriers charge exorbitant price, and guess what, if you are moving inside a bus, you can't use them.. you can only use them practically when you are in an open space with clear sky view, and not moving..
