AT&T, Cricket customers report widespread wireless outages

AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers are reporting widespread service outages in the Houston area and throughout the country, according to reports on social media.

The outage seemingly began at some point on Friday afternoon.

In a statement, Cricket Wireless apologized for the outage, saying, "We are aware of a service issue affecting some customers & are working quickly to resolve it."

AT&T has yet to issue a public statement. In 2013, the telecom giant acquired the parent company of Cricket Wireless.
