Verizon's Florida based subscribers suffer through two and a half hours without service
The outage covered the entire state from the panhandle to South Florida. While some were able to send and receive texts, the vast majority were unable to make or take phone calls, or connect to the internet.. A statement from Verizon indicated that the service outage lasted 2 and a half hours after starting at 5:10pm Eastern Time, running until 7:40pm.
If you're a Verizon customer living in the Sunshine State and was wondering why you didn't get any calls early in the afternoon, now you know why. Happily, everything is now working just as it should be for Verizon's Florida customers.
