FCC Investigates 'Nationwide Issue' That Caused Another AT&T Outage

From PC Maga: The US Federal Communications Commission is investigating an issue where customers with AT&T wireless mobile plans were unable to make calls Tuesday afternoon.

"We’re aware of reports that consumers in multiple states are unable to make wireless calls and we are currently investigating," the FCC said in a post on X, also known as Twitter, Tuesday evening. PCMag has reached out to the FCC for comment and a status update on the investigation.

Thousands reported mobile calling issues with AT&T beginning Tuesday afternoon around 1 p.m. ET, continuing for over eight hours until early Wednesday morning, according to data from Downdetector, which tracks user outage reports. Thousands of Verizon users reported mobile phone call issues around the same time, but Verizon saw fewer reports for a shorter duration of time overall.

AT&T said Tuesday night that it wasn't experiencing a "nationwide outage," but an AT&T rep instead phrased it as a "nationwide issue" in a statement to The Verge.
