Winter Storm Uri

Network Status

Wednesday, February 17, 9:00 a.m. CST

We continue to closely monitor Winter Storm Uri as it moves across the country and remain committed to keeping our customers, their families and the public safety community connected. Overall our network across impacted areas is performing well at nearly 99% of normal. And in order to assist others in the industry, we continue to keep our network open to some other companies’ customers to aid in recovery efforts too. Commercial power outages and damage from snow and ice may be affecting service for some wireless and wireline customers. We have generators supporting numerous cell sites and teams in the field refueling these generators as needed. While some areas may be inaccessible because of storm debris, downed power lines and icy road conditions, we are working to restore service as quickly and as safely as conditions allow.

Meanwhile, our teams continue to deploy and stage an arsenal of additional network recovery equipment to support customers and first responders, including SatCOLTs coming on air in Texas and hundreds generators across the storm’s path. Our teams and FirstNet liaisons are in contact with federal, state and local officials on our deployment efforts to support public safety and the communities in the in impacted areas.
