Update: Verizon now tells WHNT News 19 that service was restored at 7:35 Central time Wednesday evening.
Verizon customers in North Alabama have called, emailed and asked on the WHNT News 19 Facebook page about service problems. A spokesperson sent WHNT News 19 this statement:
“Our network engineers continue to work on restoring voice and data service in parts of Central and North Alabama. Significant progress has been made, and most customers should notice improvements in service. We will continue to provide updates as available, and again thank customers for their patience.”
Published reports detail complaints from Verizon customers in several states. Most of the problems seem to be with iPhone users, although customers with android phones report service interruptions as well.
