Verizon Wireless Outage Ends

December 8, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Verizon Wireless, the fastest and most reliable 4G network, is facing a problem with their coverage. It is being reported that many Verizon customers are complaining about the problems with their 4G LTE connectivity.

Verizon’s 4G LTE network faced a widespread outage that affected their 4G customers across the country. The company revealed that their engineers were trying to resolve the issue with the 4G LTE service and that they couldn’t promise the exact date for the restoration of the network.

We hear the issue started Monday night with some 4G devices like the Droid RAZR, which were displaying SIM card authorization errors. As the time passed, the problem kept spreading and customers with their brand new Verizon smartphones started complaining.

But the company’s promise of a fix came soon enough and at least some of the 4G LTE users were restored  late Wednesday evening. Verizon’s devices are designed to fall back on to the carrier’s 3G network, which though slow, is more widely available.

But what happened to make users panic was that these devices failed to change back to 3G. Verizon now seems to be patching things up rather quickly.

This isn’t a first of its kind occurrence. In fact, it’s the third time Verizon’s 4G network has gone down; the first being in April and the second in September.

For a person who carries his professional dealings and payments online through his handsets, this outage is not at all helpful. It might set consumers thinking whether a network who’s had three crashes in one year is worth the risk.
