A post on the company's website said that it was a capacity issue of some sort in the core of the network.

T-Mobile US had 86 million customers at the end of 2019.

Yesterday T-Mobile suffered a pretty serious network outage, and now the carrier has shed a bit more light on exactly what happened. Customers have been reporting that they can not make or receive calls although data appears to be unaffected.

Social media and Down Detector are filled with comments from people who are not able to place calls or send text messages between T-Mobile and other networks.

Meanwhile, the UK's National Statistician Professor has said a V-shaped economic recovery after coronavirus is still possible. But he said that for three weeks, the number of cases identified through testing each day has been below 1,000.

A twitter account allegedly associated with Anonymous tweeted that the country was under a major DDoS attack. It has taken down Instagram, Facebook, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Twitch.

By Monday afternoon, service-tracking site Down Detector received more than 100,000 reports of the outage.

T-Mobile customers nationwide, including in the Los Angeles area, experienced phone service outages Monday that affected calling and texting services for at least 12 hours. Customers were also facing problems in calling emergency services like 911. He tweeted and wrote: "Our engineers are working to resolve a voice and data issue that has been affecting customers around the country". Outages seemed to be widespread as of around 1:30-2:00 PM Central Time. Obviously, this is no news since the T-Mobile Tuesday app was available for download for all Sprint customers for quite a while, but it looks like we're very close to an actual rollout.

"Thank you for your patience as we fixed the issues", T-Mobile's President of Technology Neville Ray said. The problem comes a few months after T-Mobile acquired Sprint Corp. and became the second-largest USA wireless carrier by regular monthly subscribers.
