It looks like 2020 shapes up to be an exciting year for Sprint customers since they're getting all the perks that are already available to T-Mobile customers throughout the year.

T-Mobile on April 1 formally concluded its $23 billion merger with Sprint, solidifying its place as the No.3 wireless suppliers in the United States.

Thousands of T-Mobile subscribers reported outages across the United States on Monday afternoon as a routing issue knocked out service for huge swaths of the country. Almost 70% of users were reporting they had lost a signal and Down Detector's outage map revealed the reports were spread across the country.

Because of T-Mobile's network problems, callers with other service providers were having trouble connecting to T-Mobile customers, giving an impression that other carriers were also experiencing disruptions.

But it wasn't just T-Mobile: it was virtually everyone. It has taken down Instagram, Facebook, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Twitch.

It can be recounted that CenturyLink had a network failure in 2017 that affected all major carriers including 911 emergency services.

During that time, some US counties had sent emergency alerts to cell phone users informing them that 911 services have been interrupted.

A test conducted by Down Detector in NY and Seattle found that making calls from T-Mobile would fail nearly immediately after placing the call. He tweeted and wrote: "Our engineers are working to resolve a voice and data issue that has been affecting customers around the country".

He said later that data services were now available and some calls were completing.

The outage started shortly after 9 a.m., and as late as 9 p.m. the phone service provider was still working to fix the problem.
