nation's Most Reliable Wireless Network currently experiencing multiple outages

Recommended Posts

Just reminds us that no one is immune to the occasional outage, not even Big Red.  Sometimes I think particularly egotistical people could use an occasional bitch slap (reality check?) as well.  Read: my former boss.

That said, cute graphic.  It did elicit a few hearty chuckles.

Downdetector.com shows relatively few complaints but definitely some issues. Quite small compared to AT&T's reported national issues a few days ago with VoLTE. Sprint's issues with LTE a few months ago fell in between. I also recall T-Mobile having issues a while back.

I have Xfinity mobile and that runs off them. I haven't had any issues.

AT&T had a big calling issue a couple of days ago. I’m sure Sprint will have an outage in due time, too.

 

We really should delete this thread...

I think if you are totally dependant on wireless, it might be best to carry two phones that use different networks. This would not only give protection against outages but possibly for service gaps. Cost of the backup phone could be reduced by using a MVNO

 

If money is no object, get a satellite phone. Of course even if you have a satellite phone there are times and places you won't get coverage (deep valleys, too far north/south, no satellite overhead).

 

Let us not forget Wi-Fi calling and femto cells as alternatives for mobile phone service in certain situations.

You guys don't get it's all just a joke based completely on the image? It's not related to something specific in the news.

 

The V and R are burned out. Multiple outages. Get it?

The implication was that the image was posted (even designed)  specifically to poke fun at an actual outage. Seemed to make perfect sense. 

If no outage actually happened, cool. But I think we assumed one actually did. Hence, the image.

I can't believe nobody else got it lol. I saw the title and was like "what?" then saw the sign. There'd have been news everywhere if they had any real outages.

Nope, not "designed," just documented.  That image is an unadulterated photo that I took of a VZW store while I was out and about on Friday night.

That's pretty ironic. Wasn't sure if it was manipulated or not. It only makes it better that it was not.
