Verizon confirms 4G network outage, says it's now "returning to normal"
posted by Scott H. / Dec 21, 2011, 11:10 AM
Verizon Wireless 4G LTE service is returning to normal this morning after company engineers worked to resolve an issue with the 4G network during the early morning hours today. Throughout this time, 4G LTE customers were able to make voice calls and send and receive text messages. The 3G data network operated normally.
Verizon naturally wants people to know that their phones were still reliable as communication devices (technically smartphones do more than browse the web and play Angry Birds, they also let you call people in case of emergency). According to Verizon reps the network should be coming back up; Verizon only confirmed that their 4G network was impacted. It's possible that reports of 3G outages could have resulted from network congestion as 4G customers attempted to shift their data usage to 3G, or else be due to some local network issue.
Are all of you Verizon LTE users seeing the 4G connection back up and running now?

It is the most reliable network. Verizon never said, "WE ARE THE PERFECT NETWORK THAT NEVER HAS ANY ISSUES EVER."

Okay so 2 little outages that were resolved and OH that was only 2 out of the whole year. ATT in the other hand had about 6 or 7 over here in the east coast. You tell me now which one is more reliable you dumbf**k ATT fanboy!!!!! Verizon will always be Americas Favorite, reliable, and most trustable

Why is it that when a company has an outage everyone bashes them and compares them to its rival, who really cares there's gonna be plenty more outages in the future i'm sure of it

Why do people take this crap so seriously. People lash out in words cuz they can't by any other means, realistically. I bust their nads about crap cuz it eases the annoyance factor when this stuff does occur. Truth is LTE customers are a spoiled bunch who take their data speeds for granted these days. I don't think I'd be annoyed offered a better response than, datas down again, followed hours later by, it's back up.
