Verizon Restores 4G Data Service After National Outage

Verizon Wireless said its 4G LTE service was returning to normal after network outages were reported across the country early Wednesday morning.

On Twitter, customers complained that both Verizon's 4G and 3G data services were down, but in a statement the wireless company said 3G service was unaffected.

"Throughout this time, 4G LTE customers were able to make voice calls and send and receive text messages," the company statement said. "The 3G data network operated normally."

In San Francisco, writers for Endgadget confirmed that data connections were down. And TechCrunch reported that complaints also came from New York, Illinois, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio, as well as other areas.

Verizon's next-generation 4G LTE network suffered a major outage just weeks ago on Dec. 7, as well as in April.
