AT&T says wireless service back on for most Tampa Bay customers after morning outage

An outage early Friday knocked out wireless service for some AT&T customers across Tampa Bay, the company said in a statement.

The company issued a statement about 10:30 a.m. saying that most customers' service had been restored.

"Service has been restored for a vast majority of AT&T wireless customers in the Tampa and Sarasota areas of Florida affected by a local service provider issue," the statement reads. "A limited number of areas in the Dallas, TX and Los Angeles, CA markets served by the same provider were also affected. Our engineers coordinated with the local service provider to help expedite restoration efforts and we'll continue to closely monitor the situation until it's fully resolved. We apologize for this inconvenience."

Frontier Communications, the company taking over Verizon FiOs cable and internet service this morning, also experienced problems. It's currently unknown if the two were connected in any way.
