Anonymous: 'the U.S. is now under a major DDoS attack'

T-Mobile said that it was working to fix a widespread "voice and data issue" and the service would be back to normal at the earliest.

T-Mobile service provider customers experienced outage yesterday. More than 5,000 users also reported issues at Verizon at the outage's peak, but a Verizon spokesperson said the network was unaffected and that reports may have been coming from Verizon customers who were trying to call T-Mobile users and encountering an error. "Customers also can't call/be called by other providers, leading to reports other providers are down too (they're not)", he explained in a post on his Twitter account.

Before Sievert's statement circulated on Twitter, one of the trending topics on Twitter was "DDoS attacks".

Ray did not identify the supplier dependable for the circuit that failed, but he stated T-Mobile is working to increase "permanent extra safeguards" to avert potential outages like Monday's.

By Monday afternoon, service-tracking site Down Detector received more than 100,000 reports of the outage.

According to a report from The Verge, the problem with calling lies entirely with T-Mobile's network.

It can be recounted that CenturyLink had a network failure in 2017 that affected all major carriers including 911 emergency services.

Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

The Down Detector said they could not yet determine the outage's extent but it appears that it started between 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. ET. "We're sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have this fixed shortly". The problem comes a few months after T-Mobile acquired Sprint Corp. and became the second-largest US wireless carrier by regular monthly subscribers.
