    Huge Verizon data outage in Ohio today!

    Over 25 miles linear miles headed east from Dayton Ohio, zero data access. This was from at least 9 am to 4 pm today. Anyone heard anything about this or experienced in a wider area? Clearly the backhaul data was completely out. My phone still showed 3G and phone calls were fine.

    Nothing reported yet... on Google News, VZW's Facebook page, or Twitter. If it's widespread, it will be on FB or Twitter soon enough...

    Verizon Wireless'es Midwest east of Chicago but before East Coast Washington/New York/Boston traffic aggregation nodes are in Ohio. Specifically Cleveland & Cincinnati clusters where the tunnel terminates and goes into the Verizon Business/Level3/etc Internet backbone.

    My guess? Local area back-haul upgrades for LTE.

    Every tower? I certainly passed at least 15 of them, and was in range of far more.

    It seems to be a highly localized event... I wonder if a reboot would have resolved the issue.

    Same issue today in Fairborn. Shows 3G and a spinning wheel, but no data. I wised up and tried a reboot. Problem solved! Who knew? Apparently scannerman and CellHabit, thanks guys, even if you posted after I tried that. I had no idea that uptime (some two months) on an iPhone might affect data access and there were no other signs of wacky behavior. On my replaced E815, a couple of weeks up was enough to affect certain behaviors and fixed by a reboot, but never had a data issue.

    Linear Miles huh? I laughed when I read that, up here it is IMPOSSIBLE to get to ANY location by a straight line. Straight roads and railroads? We don't have such things, just lots and lots of curves, twists and turns

    Linear miles as measured by my car's odometer. Those are indeed linear miles, you are thinking of a straight line. A straight line is one definition of linear, another is sequential. I swear my tires never left the ground!

    I've driven through OH, it's roads are pretty linear compared to a lot of places. They also have widely seperated cell sites along I80 at least, 25 miles could be one cell site.
