Verizon Suffering Another Nationwide 4G LTE Outage? [Update]

By  |  259 Comments

We just received a flurry of tips from people with Verizon 4G LTE devices who say that the network is down once again. It would appear that 4G data has gone down and some people are having problems accessing 3G service as well. This would be the third time this month that Verizon’s next-generation network suffered an outage, not such a hot way to start off the new year.

Of course, those last two outages happened earlier this month. The first, took place right before the launch of the Galaxy Nexus on December 7th and Verizon was able to get it under control some hours later.

The second outage took place on December 21st and Verizon was virtually silent on the subject. No tweets, no emails, nothing. It took 16 hours to get the network up and running at full capacity leaving customers angry and frustrated.

It seems today it’s more of the same.

Verizon Outage

I can confirm that 4G LTE is down for me here in Berkeley, CA but Xavier is still seeing service in San Francisco. We’ve  received word that it’s down in other parts of California as well as in Chicago and in Detroit. So, at this point, it’s hard to say if this is widespread or not but from the looks of things, that could very well be a possibility.

We continue to hear reports of outages, including 3G outages for some users with 4G LTE phones. In Ohio Josh is still able to make calls, but data is at a standstill.

Verizon’s 4G LTE network also went down back in April when the carrier launched the Droid Charge and it also went down in September as well.

Anyone out there experiencing issues with their 4G LTE service?

Let us know.

UPDATE: Verizon is reportedly, “looking into reports of some experiencing trouble accessing 4G LTE.”, stay tuned for more on this 4G LTE outage.

    My Droid Charge lost connection on both 4g and 3g from 12-1:40ish in East Lansing MI.  My wife’s iPhone 4 did not loose connection during this time.  Around 1:40 my 3g came back.  i did find this article on the VZW forums explaining why 4g and 3g could both go out.

    its bad enough that “verizon’s galaxy nexus” already has signal issues. and now we’ve already experience 3 data outages this month. verizon needs to get their ‘ish together; selling bogus *arsh phones and advertising as having “the most reliable service.” PLEASE….. I know one thing; as soon as my contract expires, im out.

    Besides the above, their customer & tech support is absolutely horrible. with all the money they make from us each year, you would think they would invest a little more to hire people who actually know what the hell they’re talking about, instead of reading check lists of a damn computer screen. i bet half of us that have been using android phones know alot more that VZW’s tech team lmfao…

    • Chuck Harris

      12/28/2011 at 11:04 am

      You can get out now. Verizon had a holiday promotion, all phones purchased from 11/15 (Nexus release date) – 12/28 are eligible for a 30 day return period. Return your phone and cancel.

    Claremont, CA no 4g or 3g coverage on Galaxy Nexus.  Interestingly, my wife says she has 3g on iphone 4.  Both are verizon phones.  More interesting is that my Moto Xoom is picking up 4g just fine but the Galaxy Nexus next to it picks up nothing.  This is somehow hardware related.

    Verizon’s UNRELIABLE 4gLTE service.  It constantly is up and down.  But prolonged outages like this one (out for 4+ hours in Tallahassee, FL) could be very costly if you rely upon the service.
