Verizon Mum as 4G Data Network Goes Down Again

Paul Lilly

Verizon Wireless appears to be suffering from more problems on its data network all across the U.S. as customers from coast to coast complain of both 3G and 4G outages. This is the second time in less than a month that Verizon Wireless has had trouble with its data network, with no specific reason given for the last time wireless customers had to contend with spotty connectivity.

This time around Verizon has yet to come out and issue a generic statement acknowledging there's a problem followed by the obligatory line about engineers being in the process of fixing the mystery ailment. But one trip to Verizon's support forums and it's clear something's amiss. From New York City to Colorado and several other locales, increasingly frustrated subscribers are complaining of no 3G or 4G service whatsoever and a lack of communication on VZW's part.

"No service in Nashville. Ironic that a communication company can't communicate," one subscriber posted.

To be fair, 4G LTE is still in its relative infancy, and bumps in the road are to be expected. But as evidenced by user comments, a little communication would go a long way.
