    Apparently T-Mobile too is having the same issue.

    Is this like a physical cord cut or something more like someone didn't pay the bill? Lol

    That outage map is inaccurate... no AT&T issues here in Tomball area.

    T-Mobile on the other hand......

    Fiber cuts should never take out multiple towers. Each tower should be fed by redundent fiber optics lines where it can reroute if there is an outage and/or wireless or other backhaul as backup.

    Correct. Redundancy must not be in the budget, though...

    What happened was CenturyLink was digging, and cut major fiber lines.

    Wonder who's lines were cut... I have several different fiber providers (ATT, Comcast, CenturyLink, Zayo - yay redundancy!) at work locations and nothing has gone out today.

    Nobody I know on att has mentioned an outage in the area. Those with TMobile have mentioned an outage so not really sure what's going on

    If a cut line takes out multiple towers that's not good and not how things should be working.

    Yeah. Several family members of mine in The Woodlands and Spring haven’t had any outages in AT&T. But it appears that T-Mobile was completely dead in the entire metro.

    Have there been any reports of Verizon outages?

    Sounds like TMobile got the brunt of the complaints from what I've read so far

    No Verizon outages here either... all ~80 lines I manage at work are reporting as up.
