Reports of AT&T Edge network failure across US today

I have received a number of emails from people saying that AT&T’s Edge network, which is used by the iPhone, is experiencing blackout problems today. I have received a number of emails from people saying that AT&T’s Edge network, which is used by the iPhone, is experiencing blackout problems today. I don’t know if the network failures are related to the iPhone’s launch last June 29 or if these are just the usual cellular phone glitches that people have become used to over the years and find “normal”.

Funny thing though, I don’t see the media jumping all over news like this and screaming, “Cellular networks a massive failure!” as they do with municipal WiFi networks.

    Big suprise-NOT
    This will also be the case with the Verizon Wireless (Rev A.) and AT&T HSDPA networks as well. All this shows is what will happen when these new 3G Nets begin to be be hit with real Broadband level service demands (Video/VoiceIP/Music-iTunes over iPhone, and P2P traffic)allowed by these new devices. Major difference then using these Narrowband Cell nets for typical Web Surfing and email download traffic people are bragging about.
    I am sure Verizon Wireless is getting some sort of grins from this struggle the Edge folks are experiencing.
