Every now and again, but not too often, we inform our readers of a Verizon outage and unfortunately today is one of those days. However it seems that the outage at present is only affecting the Verizon LTE Network and 3G but not 4G connectivity is available.
Problems with the Verizon 4G LTE network are being reported from across the U.S. and Vlad Savov over on Engadget tells us that they tried a 4G connection earlier in San Francisco and as reported, failed to get 4G connectivity, although 3G seemed fine. Others have noted failure for both 3G and 4G calls though but Engadget notes that this is most likely due to a previously existing problem with the HTC Thunderbolt.
Other Thunderbolt users have been left perplexed by the LTE outage and Droid Attic contacted Verizon and received confirmation of a nationwide outage, which the company says is only affecting some Thunderbolt owners. Meanwhile Phandroid points out that Verizon will be very keen to get this solved quickly as the second 4G phone for the LTE network is to be launched tomorrow, that would be the Droid Charge.
We’re interested to hear if you’ve been affected by the 4G outage on Verizon so please do send us your comments and tell us where you are so that we can get an idea of how widespread a problem this is.
We have heard through Engadget that Verizon has acknowledged the problem with a tweet and says it is working to resolve the issue with 4G LTE quickly. We’ll let you know if we hear more.
