T-Mobile back up after US outage
Five-hour fubar fixed
T-Mobile's US network is back on its feet after yesterday's five-hour outage that left customers disconnected.
In a statement posted to the T-Mobile forum discussing the outage the company apologised for "intermittent service disruptions" that affected "About five percent of our customers across various geographies" and promised that "by late Tuesday PST their service was restored".
The company isn't saying what caused the outage which left callers getting a "number unobtainable signal" and customers with no connectivity at all. Apparently T-Mobile is still investigating, and is very sorry for the inconvenience.
That didn't wash with the users, who racked up 107 pages of outrage last time we looked. It appeared some were still smarting from the carrier's recent Sidekick fiasco.
We'll bring you more details if and when we get them. ®
