If you’re reading this, you’re one of the lucky cell phone or internet customers that does not have AT&T. AT&T’s wireless service has been down in Louisville, Lexington, Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and other area cities for several hours, and many of AT&T internet customers are experiencing problems as well.

Verizon is also down in areas of Kentucky and Indiana. Rumor has it the issue was caused by a server problem in Alabama or Kentucky or a fiber was cut somewhere in Western Kentucky.

ATT released this statement on the outage: “In regards to an updated media statement for your use… some customers across parts of the Southeast are experiencing wireline and wireless service issues.  Engineers have pinpointed a hardware-related issue and are working to restore service as quickly as possible. We apologize for this inconvenience.”

Can you hear me now? No? Hello? Bueller?

    ATT sings of their world class customer service. Very Trump like.

      You are correct. Union terrorists. Their contract expires at midnight this Saturday, 8/08/15. They want to make some noise; let the SE consumers and corporate leaders know they are really brain surgeons deserving of more than reality provides.
