Submission + - Southeastern USA Experiences Large AT&T Outage (wral.com)

cosm writes: I woke up this morning for work around 7am, and to my surprise (alright, not quite), service on my AT&T phone was completely unavailable. For the first 12 hours, no bars whatsoever, my phone registered no signal whatsoever, and for the remaining portion of the blackout I had normal signal, but "Network Unavailable" until it came back up around 10:30PM EST. In light of all the recent horror stories of AT&T's poor infrastructure, I would say this is par for the course. The lack of service applied to all my family, friends, and co-workers who subscribe / are locked into contracts with AT&T as well. The amazing thing is that this loss in coverage pervaded a very large portion of North Carolina, and news outlets are reporting it covered possibly Tennesee and Georgia as well, for a large portion of the day.

AT&T Statement FTA: "AT&T is experiencing a wireless service interruption in parts of the Eastern North Carolina area. As a result, some customers in these areas may be having trouble making and receiving calls," Prince said in a statement. "AT&T is working on a solution to the problem and will provide updates going forward. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience."
