Customers at T-Mobile in the US said they could not make or send text messages after interruption.
We tested with a T-Mobile phone in the office. Both calls to and from the T-Mobile phone failed. When we tried to send a text message, he said that the message could not be sent. Access to mobile data does not appear to be affected.
The outage starts around 6:00 PM ET.
Consumers took to social media to complain about the interruption. US users said they were affected. The T-Mobile support account says the cellular giant is "hiring our engineers and working on a solution."
Two hours after the outage, CEO John LeGare acknowledged that the company was struggling to return online, but noted that the company "has already begun to see signs of recovery."
T-Mobile is the third largest mobile carrier after Verizon (which owns TechCrunch) and AT&T. The company has proposed a proposed $ 26.5 billion merger with Sprint, approved by the Federal Communications Commission, despite a stream of state attorneys in the pipeline to block the deal. Ray.
