Verizon Wireless goes down in Montana and Wyoming, gets put right back up again

Tim Stevens

We received a handful of tips overnight from readers in higher altitudes indicating problems with their Verizon Wireless devices, problems that seemed more severe than the last round of outages. Indeed there was a problem that knocked out all service, but it was restricted to areas in and around Montana and Wyoming, and it's said to be already fixed. Verizon said a switch failed during regularly scheduled maintenance, putting early bird subscribers offline for a period of about seven hours. All appears nominal again at the moment, so go ahead, give your friends a call and get them out of bed already.
