Reports are coming in from all over the various internets that AT&T’s highly criticised EDGE network is down! We can imagine the 500,000 new iPhone users are hitting AT&T network pretty hard, but that’s no excuse for a network outage!
Interestingly, our AT&T Go Phone prepaid plan experienced network outages just days prior to the Apple iPhone launch. We attributed the outage to AT&T upgrading their EDGE network, but it seems that the entire network is experiencing growing pains under the likely intense iPhone data bombardment.
This is entirely inexcusable and should be resolved by AT&T with some account credits being issued. If you are experiencing a network outage, speak up. We’d love to get a feel for how many of you are affected!
