T-Mobile hit with overnight outage


T-Mobile’s been having bad luck with outages lately, getting hit with a couple service interruptions at the end of September and then a brief calling outage earlier this week. Now it looks like another one hit overnight.

Many T-Mobile customers report that they lost service overnight. Reports came in from all over the country, including Seattle, Boston, Boise, Dallas, and other cities.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere acknowledged that some customers were having issues, saying on Twitter “Understand some are having intermittent calling issues.” Around half an hour later, he tweeted that “the network is restoring quickly and calls should be connecting now.” Later this morning, the official @TMobileHelp account on Twitter said that the outage affected voice, data, and SMS.

There’s no word yet on what caused the outage, but it does look like service has been restored for most customers. If you’re still having issues, T-Mobile recommends that power off your phone and then power it back on.

Any service outage is irritating, but they get even more frustrating when multiple service outages hit in a short period of time. Hopefully this recent string of outages that’ve affected T-Mobile and its customers will come to an end after today.
