[Updated] T-Mobile outage: service down or not working for many

New updates are being added at the end of this story…….

The original story (published December 26, 2020) is as follows:

T-Mobile suffered an outage across Tennessee following the Christmas morning explosion in Nashville. However, the carrier is not the only victim, as its downtime means Sprint and Mint Mobile are also affected.

This is due to Mint Mobile making use of T-Mobile cell towers and the fact that Sprint recently merged with T-Mobile with the latter emerging as the surviving brand.

And the matter is evident from a Mint Mobile support agent as shown below.

And after the incident, social networks are full of affected users who lament that they cannot make calls or use any cellular services.

Various sources are reporting that T-Mobile is experiencing service issues in various locations in the southeastern part of the United States. Sources confirm that these issues are directly related to the earlier explosion in Nashville, Tennessee.

The explosion apparently occurred near an AT&T tower, resulting in AT&T being the hardest hit among the bunch with a massive service outage that lasted over 10 hours and is still ongoing at the time of writing.

The weird thing here is the fact that for whatever reason, T-Mobile and Mint were also affected by the outage. However, a Redditor has given a possible explanation for this.

Well, a major backbone of ATT was affected by the explosion. I know Mint uses T-Mobile towers, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a connection somehow. There could even be a clause in the mvno contracts stating that when a network is down, the majority carrier has exclusive use before mvno is allowed back on the network.

But while Mint Mobile’s support agent seems to hint that the outage affected the entire state of Tennessee, there are some reports to the contrary.

In my Nashville area, T-Mobile works fine. AT&T doesn’t work at all.

Also, unlike AT&T, which was quick to acknowledge the matter, there has been no official statement from T-Mobile or Mint so far, though the number of affected users appears to be plentiful.

This follows from a plethora of reports on T-Mobile’s fall detector. find yourself from this link.

Regardless, as stated by AT&T, the carrier is working diligently to restore services as soon as possible, and if the T-Mobile/Mint and AT&T outages are indeed linked, users can expect service restoration soon enough. .
