We continue to closely monitor the fires in California and Colorado. Our network is holding up well and is experiencing very minimal impacts from fire damage or power outages. In fact, it is operating above 99% of normal in California and Colorado despite wildfire activity.

We monitor our network 24/7 both locally and nationally and we will continue to do so during these wildfires because we remain committed to supporting our customers, including first responders, and our employees in the affected communities. Our local and regional Network support teams and the Network Disaster Recovery (NDR) team, in partnership with the AT&T FirstNet team, are prepared with network assets in California and Colorado for quick deployment if needed.
