As well as bringing you news on smartphones and tablets we also like to keep readers informed about product or network problems and it seems as though today there is some sort of disruption for Verizon customers in the Midwest. Reports tell of a Verizon data outage affecting some customers and we’d like to know how widespread this is.
Apparently the issue doesn’t seem to be affecting voice calling but many seem to be having trouble with data connection issues on both 3G and 4G LTE networks. A report on The Verge says that many customers have contacted them to inform them about the problems so we do know that this is not an isolated incident. Also checking out Verizon Wireless Support on Twitter it’s clear that plenty of people are complaining about the issue and there’s a certain amount of frustration being shown.
Data is reported to be dropping intermittently and it will be interesting to see if The Verge gets any response to their requests to Verizon for comment about the current situation. As there has been no response so far we cannot pass on any news about a possible timeframe for the issue being resolved. This latest outage will not do the giant carrier’s reputation any good coming hot on the heels of other Verizon outages and we’d like to hear from readers who are Verizon customers.
Are you in the Midwest and currently noting data connection issues on Verizon? Maybe you have problems but are not in the Midwest? We’d like to gauge how widespread this issue is so please let us know if you are having problems and also your location by sending us your comments.
