Customers throughout the country have taken to social media to vent frustration over a widespread wireless service outage.
AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers are reporting widespread service outages in the Houston area and throughout the country, according to reports on social media.
The outage seemingly began at some point on Friday afternoon.
@Cricketnation actually just be honest ATT entire network just got hit in the southeast to Texas. Millions out of service.

Wow, I didn’t think a cellular service could go down across the entire country. Did Cricket Wireless not pay its AT&T bill?

In a statement, Cricket Wireless apologized for the outage, saying, “We are aware of a service issue affecting some customers & are working quickly to resolve it.”
AT&T has yet to issue a public statement. In 2013, the telecom giant acquired the parent company of Cricket Wireless.
