If everyone faced cell outage for a month, it would be worse than Covid.

No doubt.

Tried to follow up on two candidates to hire, same situation on both. Doesn't ring while "calling", then it just disconnects. My phone seems to be working, but now I wonder if they are being affected. Maybe they just don't want to work for me. I don't know.



Same here in South Jersey . So People I call the Call does not even RING . Just Dead Air then a Disconnect Sound ........WTF ?

Pretty sure that cell phone companies use the internet to transfer voice data between cell towers and the main and to other cell companies.

VOIP is neat but it's attackable. I'm surprised that they haven't null routed the traffic coming to them yet upstream.

Cellular is not VOIP.

Cell is spectrum. Yeah there, is probably some signaling that uses IP to communicate, but it should never migrate the Internet at large that would enable a DDOS attack.

We're talking critical infrastructure here.

I'm fairly shure at this point every network has been converted to use the fiber lines so at some point somewhere they are basically still a hackable computer

Not even close. I work in fiber... it's sketchy at best.

How many networks are we talking here?

Are phones getting no service in certain areas.

Is it just phone or is it data as well?

I have T-Mobile and I'm in the Atlanta area. I have data and can make calls, but I cannot receive them or call anyone else on T-Mobile

Long haul vs. short haul.

Cell does indeed connect to land networks, of course, at some point.

Plus, I have no idea where you are or even if you are referring to a 1980's song.

Look Im no internet expert but I have a link here that shows graphs that show a spike of service issues all starting at 5 &6

Several comapnies Verizon Paypal Honeywell Instagram.

Can someone that might be more computer savy take a look and tell me whats going on it doesn't look normal to me.

downdetector.com...

Downdetector collects status reports from a series of sources, including Twitter and reports submitted on our websites and mobile apps. Our system validates and analyzes these reports in real-time, allowing us to automatically detect outages and service disruptions in their very early stages.


YMMV

this is exactly why I have been searching for a landline provider with little luck. Well, attacks come from every direction on all kinds of targets during war don't they?

Not entirely normal, no..

Things like downdetector operate from issues reported, which will fluctuate from concurrent users to actual issues. Anything from DDoS to a solar flare can cause spikes.

We can see from digitalattackmap that there is a pretty solid amount of traffic. Again, not entirely meaning its all connected.

However, if its a pretty high amount of traffic being driven (solar activity seems low, from a quick check) to a lot of networks.. Youd tend to see a spike before mitigation efforts kick in (if they are there).

Pretty widespread, large volume traffic though. It tends to be a little more focused historically (certain banks, specific businesses, etc), if thats the case.

If long haul got taken out dosent that turn ur cellular network into something with the range of a cb

I dont know the exact distance cell towers go but id imagin once ur out of the city thats the end of short range
