Verizon is reported to be the most affected locations in Brooklyn, Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, Tampa, Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago.
The network problems reported by AT?amp;T appear to have arisen at around 1:30 p.m. Central time with Verizon. Like Verizon, complaints are focused on mobile phones, but a significant number of people complain about slow Internet connections.
Sprint’s complaints are almost entirely mobile-centric. Eighty-seven percent of Sprint’s complaints were mobile-centric, 8 percent were related to the mobile Internet and 3 percent were related to a complete outage. The proportion of complaints from mobile phone users is almost the same – mainly mobile phone users.
