Wednesday was a summit of frustrating outages. The Google Docs outage hit people across the US throughout the afternoon. Then, AT&T suffered an apparent outage that may be even more widespread, preventing users from making phone calls.
Down Detector shows massive outages across the country, with thousands telling the site they're without service. It doesn't appear to be everyone on AT&T, but a large number of customers appear to affected. Many on social media have reported getting information from local AT&T stores about cell towers being down, though that hasn't come across any official channels.
