Sprint + AT&T were down yesterday from around 2pm until sometime after midnight. Sprint was on earlier but went down again.

Has anyone heard anything about what is happening on STX with cell service?

Towers or generator problems?

I do not know what caused AT&T cell users grief the other afternoon. Our cell phones would only allow emergency calls. There must have been a major problem because it took most of the afternoon/evening to fix it.

We went to No Bones where there was WIFI & a decent AT&T 4GLTE signal.

Yeah it also affected Sprint service. Guess ups and downs is the new normal.

AT&T service on the east end hasn't been as good as pre-Maria either. Some days better than others, but definatly weaker overall than it used to be.
Im glad for what we have, but I hope they're still working to improve things.

PS: I had to wait to post this, service was down again.
