T-Mobile confirmed the network problem on its Twitter account yesterday, with the following tweet: "T-Mobile is experiencing a network data issue. Service for some customers may be impacted. We’ll keep everyone posted."
Later, at about 9.15 p.m. Pacific Time, the operator announced that the issue had been resolved: "Full data service has been restored to customers. We thank you for your patience."
As reported by AllThingsD, T-Mobile supplied this statement about the outage: "T-Mobile experienced a network data issue Monday night that affected service for some customers with a 3G or 4G device. Some customers were not able to initiate a data session, or experienced intermittent data connectivity."
It's not known how many customers were affected by the data network outage or what caused the network to fail.
But T-Mobile becomes the latest operator to have a major outage on its mobile data network.
