The outage seemingly began at some point on Friday afternoon.
@Cricketnation actually just be honest ATT entire network just got hit in the southeast to Texas. Millions out of service.— Total Tech (@TotalTechvids) June 3, 2016
Wow, I didn't think a cellular service could go down across the entire country. Did Cricket Wireless not pay its AT&T bill?— Matthew Miller (@palmsolo) June 3, 2016
In a statement, Cricket Wireless apologized for the outage, saying, "We are aware of a service issue affecting some customers & are working quickly to resolve it."
AT&T has yet to issue a public statement. In 2013, the telecom giant acquired the parent company of Cricket Wireless.
