AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers are reporting widespread service outages throughout the country, according to reports on social media.

The outage seemingly began at some point on Friday afternoon.

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.
