ROCKFORD (WREX) -
There are major network outages from carriers including Verizon and U.S. Cellular across northern Illinois.
Representatives at Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular have confirmed to 13 News that they are seeing major outages in our area. They tell us crews are on site working on the problem, but there is no time frame for the service to return.
We did receive a statement from U.S. Cellular stating, "U.S. Cellular's network in the Rockford area is experiencing a service disruption due to high traffic, affecting customers in the area. Our engineers are working diligently to fix the issue and restore coverage. Our top priority is providing an excellent wireless experience to our customers in Rockford, and we will update you when it is resolved."
