Verizon Hit With Second Big Data Outage This Month

Verizon Wireless users from various parts of the country are again reporting an outage of the carrier’s main data networks.

In reports on Twitter and the carrier’s support forums, users note getting either no data service or service only on Verizon’s slowest data network.

Two weeks ago, Verizon had a significant outage on its fastest network. That network also went down for a spell back in April.

A Verizon representative was not immediately available for comment. The Verge said that a representative they talked to confirmed the outage, but declined to offer details or provide a time frame when service might be restored.
