AT&T has clarified that the recent widespread outage in its U.S. cellphone network was likely due to a technical error, not a deliberate cyber attack. The disruption affected thousands of users nationwide, starting early Thursday before service was restored. AT&T attributed the issue to a coding error during network expansion, with reports peaking at around 73,000 incidents. Despite concerns, other carriers like Verizon and T-Mobile reported normal operations, suggesting the problem primarily affected AT&T connections. Federal agencies, including the FCC and FBI, are investigating the incident. Lawmakers are also seeking to understand the cause and prevent future disruptions.AT&T Addresses Cellphone Network Outage
