AT&T iPhone Outage in Tampa Florida: Main Cable Was Cut

Yesterday we heard that AT&T customers in Tampa, Florida and some other nearby locations were suffering a complete reception outage, we can now confirm that this had nothing to do with the iPhone 4 reception issues, in fact road workers are to blame.

Apparently a main AT&T cable was accidental cut during recent road construction work, this caused an outage for both iPhone and all other AT&T wireless devices in the surrounding areas.

The good news is that later on that day service was restored, and an AT&T representative revealed this statement “We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused customers”.

I must admit when I first heard of the outage I was quick to blame the iPhone 4 etc, it is kind of nice to hear that the issue was not the carrier or handset manufacturer fault.

Were you affected by the outage? If so, is everything back to normal now?
