AT&T just issued a text message to its customers alerting them that it is working around the clock to restore outages in areas that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The carrier recently teamed up with T-Mobile USA in the meantime, allowing customers to roam across both networks until service is fully restored. The note to AT&T’s customers, sent via SMS, reads:
AT&T Svc MSG: In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, we are closely monitoring our wireless network for service disruptions. Our crews are working around the clock to restore service to impacted areas. Please stay safe and thank you for your patience. Sincerely, AT&T.
