June 15, 2020 – Today there were numerous reports of a T Mobile Cellular outage with nationwide reach. According to several sources such as Tech Crunch https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/15/t-mobile-calling-outage/ and Business Insider https://www.businessinsider.com/verizon-sprint-att-t-mobile-service-down-some-areas-us-2020-6 there were tens of thousands of reported outages. According to downdetector.com the largest problem reported was “no signal” which would clearly indicate a unique and significant problem.
T Mobile just recently announced a new program called “Connecting Heroes” which we have reported here on AllthingsFirstNet.com. The program provides free service to first responder agencies. Public safety has always been concerned about programs from wireless carriers that don’t understand mission critical communications.
