Update 8:08 AM: This is definitely a nationwide outage. I have seen reports from coast to coast online. Some areas are reporting that 3G has come back up – Washington DC and some smaller areas. Nothing yet in New York, and I have no 3G or 4G in the Richmond area.
Are you looking for a reliable wireless service for that special someone for Christmas? Or perhaps you plan to treat yourself to one of the heavily advertised phones that take advantage of the VerizonWireless “Super fast” LTE Data network. The new Droid Bionics are pretty speedy.
When the VerizonWireless Network is actually up and running.
I have been with the carrier for a number of years because their coverage and reliability is second to none.
Make that was second to none.
This morning, for at least the 4th time this month I have awakened to find I have no emails on my Droid. Believe me, I should have numerous emails.
An occasional outage is one thing, but these are becoming as frequent as Republican Debates on TV.
I can honestly say that I have never given serious consideration to changing to another carrier. Until now. VerizonWireless is not the cheapest guy on the block, by a long shot. But I have been willing to trade a bit more money for the outstanding service that they used to have.
I will be looking around today for another company. This is beyond normal and expected downtime. They have crossed the line into the unreliable category.
Anyone happy with their services from other carriers?
