    Looking over the posts in acs, sprint has a major outage, at least
    citywide, once a month.
    Now if we check for outages starting on a Monday, you get a good idea
    if these are related
    to weekend "upgrades" or just plain lousy service. Vision, VM, website,
    combined, something
    crashes big time monthly.

    I left Verizon when their Victor Valley network broke and they didn't fix it
    for six months. Never had that problem with Sprint.

    Wow, look at them dates...so over at least a 7 year span, there have
    been "166 outages". Spanning the WHOLE USA. Hey, can you do an outage
    check for Electric companies as well?

    Did that incident make any newspapers? Strange how a google search of
    ACS shows monthly reports by posters of outages that appear to be city
    wide.

    VZW and S sure advertise alot in newspapers and on TV, and few citywide
    outages are ever covered in the news, co-incidence???

    A.C.verizon show no citywide outages reported by posters in 2005.

    That was just a sample from a Google search "Sorted by relevance". Sort
    by date for "outage" and a little reading will show CITYWIDE outages on
    average, once a month.
    North, South, red, blue states: S sure doesn't discriminate.

    Preemo SPCS service in Clovis:

    "Last one lasted for perhaps 10 or 12 hours! Totally out, no service
    anywhere in town. Well, roaming worked, so it was strictly Sprint that
    was
    out. Earl Needham"

    I think your tinfoil hat is falling off. You may want to straighten it.

    > A.C.verizon show no citywide outages reported by posters in 2005.


    I read both groups, idiot. I want to know what "citywide" outages were
    reported by Sprint customers in 2005 in this newsgroup. I sure didn't see any.

    Oh Bull****! If you are going to post something, post something current. All
    I see from your posts are nothing, but hot air.

    Wow- you found three. What a goldmine of information.

    What percentage of outages does this represent? How does it compare to
    other carriers? Do you have any information on other carriers? How does
    this pattern compare to landline telephone, DSL, ISP's and cable
    entertainment providers?

    Of course, I don't expect you to answer any of these questions with even the
    slightest bit of information. Beside it being way above your limited
    comprehension level, answering them truthfully would seriously deflate the
    hard-on you have for Sprint. And it would make the conspiracy theories you
    have concocted seem even less believable than they are now.

    But thanks for posting- I need that ocassional reminder that the uneducated
    lunatic fringe is still alive and well.

    Three instances, is that all you've got? Vision down in two of those three?
    I remember those posts and it was not that big of deal. Vision was down for
    a day or so, but it had no effect on voice calling.

    As mentioned, all wireless carriers experience outages, and the above were
    very minimal incidents.
