Users in our forums began reporting this morning that they were experiencing outages with their AT&T service. The Consumerist points out that there are conflicting reports as to who has been affected. It appears that both 3G and EDGE users have experienced problems with Internet connectivity. One update reports that eighteen states, primarily in the Midwest, have been impacted. The latest report says that AT&T does not know what has caused the outage but is working to remedy the problem.
I swear, you set up a bunch of Treo's to work with GroupWise mobile server and they act like you cut their damned arms off when they stop working for a few hours... Now, there's a thought. -- Burrow owl...burrow owl...

AT&T wirelesses heavy bandwidth usage iphone hogs!!!
The reason why AT&T wireless had an outage it's very simple there was more traffic than AT&T wirelesses network infastructure could handle their ip backbone system was overloaded they still run on 10 gig per second something should tell them to wake up and smell the $$$$$$$$ fresh air in the death star and upgrade their ip backbone system to 40 gigs a second with cisco high bandwidth routers otherwise the same problem will happen contiously over time again and again it should of told them something by now!!!

check it out if you have a AT&T wireless phone-pda phone their network is heading for another crash. I did a speed test 302 kbps a second, and it's obvious bandwidth hogs. I give them one more hour another network outage is gonna happen, I promise ya that!!!
