Verizon's 4G Network Goes Down

Wuh oh — if anyone picked today to be the day when they finally go and pick up that Verizon 4G phone they’ve been saving up for, they’re going to be a bit… underwhelmed.

According to the carrier themselves, anyone rockin’ a Verizon 4G phone (read: the Thunderbolt) is “experiencing connection issues” this morning. On the upside, the phones should still work as, you know, phones — data connectivity will just be quite a bit slower.

So, what’s causing the issues? Good question. As of about an hour ago, Verizon was still investigating the cause. Maybe the LTE network saw that PSN was taking a little vacation and decided to do the same?
