Cellphone Services Throughout the Country Experienced Mass Outages Today;
Is It a Cyberattack?

The outage is affecting 911 calls.

The outage seems to be affecting mostly big cities on the east coast, including Montreal.

The NY Post:

A major cellphone outage affected users across the US early Thursday -- even stopping some police departments from being able to receive 911 calls.

AT&T seemed to have experienced the largest number of issues, with nearly 32,000 reports at around 4:30 a.m., according to data from DownDetector, which tracks outages by collating status reports from sources including user-submitted errors on its platform.

More than 800 service outages were also reported on T-Mobile and Verizon, although a spokesperson for the latter put it down to users reporting problems trying to call people with other services.

Others reported issues on smaller carriers including Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk Wireless.

The problems extended from New York, Boston, and Atlanta on the East Coast to Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco -- and even to Montreal in Canada.

...

On Verizon and T-Mobile, spokespersons told The Post their networks are operating normally.

Some fear this was a cyberattack:

MikePrasad.eth @mikeprasad

Confirmation from around the US on a nationwide cellular network outage. Seems to have affected @ATT first, then later reports from other phones on @TMobile @Verizon and more. I can't imagine this is incompetence or a single node failure. Concerned it could be a #cyberattack.

Maro Roobles is warning that the Chinese have the capability to take out much more than our phone systems.

GOP Sen. Marco Rubio warned on social media that the AT&T outage affecting tens of thousands of Americans pales in comparison to what a potential China cyberattack would look like.

"I don't know the cause of the AT&T outage," the Florida Republican posted on X on Thursday. "But I do know it will be 100 times worse when #China launches a cyber attack on America on the eve of a #Taiwan invasion."

"And it won't be just cell service they hit, it will be your power, your water and your bank."
