AT&T blames U-verse Internet outage on 'web hosting service issue'

Tools

AT&T (NYSE: T) was hit with a major outage impacting its U-verse service, sources reported Monday.

The service provider said that while U-verse broadband Internet customers in several states lost service, its U-verse TV and voice products were not impacted. 

"A limited number of AT&T customers across multiple states may have experienced a disruption with U-verse high speed Internet service due to a third-party web hosting service issue," an AT&T spokesperson said in a statement sent to FierceCable. "Technicians worked to quickly resolve the issue, and service is currently running normally." 

In January 2013, AT&T blamed "an issue with a server that supports U-verse" for causing a major outage of its broadband service.
