Network Status

Nov. 14, 2018, 3:56 p.m.

We know communication is crucial, which is why we have opened our network to other carriers’ customers. During times of disaster, all those affected should have the connectivity they need to communicate with friends and family. 

Overall, our network continues to perform well and is currently operating at above 99% of normal in both Northern and Southern California. As our teams deploy network recovery assets, and repair equipment damaged by fire or power outages, customers should experience an improvement in their services.

We continue working hard to ensure those affected have the connectivity they need when it matters most. 

AT&T's Network Arsenal in Action

Nov. 15, 2018, 8:30 p.m.

The fire situation across California remains dire. As work to combat the ongoing fires continues, we remain committed to keeping our customers, FirstNet subscribers and public safety agencies connected.

Our Network Disaster Recovery team has deployed portable cell sites, or SatCOLTs (Cell on Light Trucks), to Pleasant Valley Baptist Church at 13539 Garner Lane, Chico, CA.

These mobile cell sites will provide crucial connectivity for customers and first responders in areas where traditional cell sites have been damaged or affected by power outages. We will reallocate resources as service improves, as well as deploy portable generators and additional equipment as necessary.
