My Sprint/PCS service is still sputtering between analog roaming and zilch in Bay
Ridge, Brooklyn, which is within eyeshot of Ground Zero across the harbor.
Digital service did come back for a while, earlier today, but it's back to the
same impaired [read as: useless] state now as it's been for the past four days.
Since Sprint usually makes a statement only after they've
fixed a failure, I'm guessing something else happened this
morning, and is now fixed. Anyone with information about
what Sprint fixed?
Sprint/Sprint PCS Network Status
SEPTEMBER 15, 2001
KANSAS CITY, MO.
As of noon, CDT today, Sprint wireline switching facilities that
support Sprint's telecommunications network are stable and processing
voice and data traffic normally. In addition, Sprint PCS reports that
progress is being made to restore wireless phone service to customers
throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area.
Four Sprint PCS cell sites remain out of service in the immediate
disaster area. Many other sites across Manhattan are still without
service primarily due to the loss of their landline connection provided
to Sprint PCS by other telecom carriers.
Service for most Sprint long distance and wireless customers remains
normal across the rest of the United States. Some wireline voice and
data customer sites in New York remain without service, again due to
the loss of their landline connection provided to Sprint by other
Sprint associates continue to work with other telecom companies and
government officials to restore full service as soon as possible.
