February 11 has been an interesting day for T-Mobile. Not too long after its merger with Sprint was approved, reports of service outages throughout the entire United States began to pop up.
Looking at the outage map on Down Detector, there are numerous service issues coming from Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, Houston, and New York, just to name a few of the affected areas.
I don't have any issues with my T-Mobile service here in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but your mileage will vary.
It's also very unlikely that the outage actually has anything to do with the approved merger, and can just be chalked up to unfortunate timing.
In any case, once the issues disperse, we'll update this article accordingly.
