According to the reports coming in from all over the web, AT&T is suffering some data issues across the nation Southeastern US. This doesn’t surprise us, as AT&T is prone to this sort of thing every now and then and it quickly gets resolved, but we at IntoMobile haven’t been affected so far. We’re in NYC, San Francisco and New Jersey and so far data is chugging along smoothly. The reports do state, however, that 2G is what’s being affected.
First of all, if you’re using a device that relies on AT&T’s EDGE network, point in the mirror and laugh. Secondly, when you’re done, let us know in the comments if your data is still spotty and how long you’ve been affected.
We sure hope these sorts of occurrences become less of an issue leading up to and after the iPhone 4 launch.
AT&T contacted us to clarify their position on the data outage in the Southeast US:
AT&T technicians are working to identify and resolve an issue affecting 3G data service for some customers in the southeast. We will provide more information as it becomes available, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.
Are you affected by the data outage?
