Verizon outage reported nationwide

Verizon outage reported nationwide

Verizon is reportedly experiencing a nationwide outage, according to customers and the company's Down Detector.

Customers on social media said Wednesday morning that they were unable to make outgoing calls and were instead getting an, "All circuits busy," message.

The Reno Police Department tweeted that the company told them there is not an estimated fix time.

The Sun Prairie Police Department in Wisconsin says all of its departments are unable to receive incoming calls from Verizon cellphones due to the outage.

"This is a nationwide issue that Verizon is aware of and working on. As of the time of this message, we do not have an ETA on the repair of this issue," the department said.

Down detector's map shows large areas of the country in the red. You can view the map here.

Verizon has not commented on the outage as of 7 a.m. ET Wednesday.

    Wasn't it just a couple of weeks ago that COMCAST was down nationwide?

    My Internet WIFI provider is STRATA, which includes my landline for local telephone calls.

    For calling outside of this area, I have a vintage TRACFONE flip-style cellular telephone, which also gives me access to the Internet.

    Also, my KINDLE FIRE from AMAZON gives me WIFI access to the Internet.

    So far, I've had no problems.

    The Senators and Representatives…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony, and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same…. Article I, Section 6, Clause 1
    Congress have Lied to American Citizens everyday of the Impeachment Hearings. They are fond of saying, “Nobody is Above the Law.” Most of these Congressmen are Attorneys, and certainly Know Article I, Section 6, Clause 1,” and You can be assured, “They have Conveyed this Information to their Fellow Congressmen (and women). Especially, “Those Democrats Who have Created a Fraudulent Impeachment against President Trump using Phony Information and Second Hand Witnesses with Opinions Only (No Actual Crimes Revealed).” “These Congressmen (and women) have Immunity from Prosecution for Their Illegal Actions while in Session.” This is why They (Congress) have No Fear of being Charged with Crimes from Their Actions and Statements in the Impeachment Hearings. An Example of My Point: Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff at the inception of these Hearings, “Read a totally ‘Fraudulent (Perjury) Transcript’ of what President Trump stated in His (Trump) Ukranian Phone Call with President Zelensky.”
    Diplomatic Agents and their immediate families are immune from criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits. The Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (Apr. 18, 1961, 23 U.S.T. 3227, 500 U.N.T.S. 95) contains the most widely accepted description of the International Law on diplomacy.
    Why do I bring up Diplomatic Agents? Consider if “Obama (State Department) made Hunter Biden (Democratic Bag Man – Received 1 Billion from China – $83,000 a month from a Ukrainian Gas Company with an additional 16 million dollar disbursement – Biden had No Money Recent Court Case over His Baby – Gave money to Washington DC Insiders),” along with “Speaker of the House Pelosi and Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s Sons (also involved in Ukrainian Gas Companies),” Appointed, These High Profile Sons (of Government Leadership), “Diplomatic Agents.” Thus I hope you’re starting to see, “You are Living in a Matrix of Absolute Lies and Lawlessness.” We hope for Justice, but sad to say, “These is No Justice for America’s Corrupt Leadership.” Why and How could these Events Happen? – 2 Thessalonians 7 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work (Happening Washington DC – America – Mystery Babylon); but the one (Holy Ghost Filled Christians) who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way (Rapture). 8 And then the lawless one (The Anti Christ Obama Directing Events in Washington DC) will be revealed (shall be Charged with Treason escaping Justice eventually ending up in Kenya where he shall become Secretary General of the United Nations. Obama shall control the U.N. from the 1996 Built Kenyan United Nations Facility). “The Anti Christ Obama Shall Enforce, on May 19, 2021, His Created December 23, 2016 U.N. Resolution 2334 which gives Jerusalem back to the Muslims (under International Law).” “He (Obama) shall bring the 10 Divisional Regions (Revelation 17 12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast),” “Against America,” which is Mystery Babylon (Revelation 17 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth).

    How can I be so sure the Anti Christ Obama Attacks America on May 19, 2021? The answer is quite simple. Daniel 9:27 (Confirms a Covenant with Israel for 7 Years) gives a start point for the final 7 years. Everybody believes that Covenant to be a Peace Treaty (Deal of the Century), but this is not and never was the case. “What was Confirmed (which many Presidents Refused to do) by President Trump on December 6, 2017,” was, “The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995.” Why was this Act so important? “It effectively ‘Gave Jerusalem back to Israel’ after 2000 Years.” This Event (for Israelis) was far more important then any Peace Treaty. It also Occurred within the Final Generation Prophecy (Israel became Nation 1948 + Biblical Generation 70 Years = 2018 – Final 7 Years had to kick off within those 70 Years). Therefore take the date December 6, 2017 and add Daniel’s 1260 days (31/2 years) brings you to May 19, 2021. Now understand what this particular Date, “May 19, 2021, Indicates,” which is, “The Great Tribulation (Wrath of God).” The Bible says, “God did not Appoint his Christians to his Wrath.” Therefor: “The Rapture could Occur Anytime between Now, and May 19, 2021.” Bottom line: Be Ready!

    No Verizon issues in my area....hmmm. I've been with them since 2006 after all the issues I used to have with AT&T. Never any major issues and the customer service is good.

    It's interesting to note on the map what areas are NOT affected. It might be bitter cold in the winter time, but nothing seems to happen in North Dakota. While it may take forever for anything new to get there, it's peaceful. I'm pretty sure that if the end of the world comes, I'm going to live 10 years longer than everybody else.
