AT&T says it’s restoring services to thousands of customers who woke up to a cellular outage today.

Other carriers, including Verizon and T-Mobile, had issues, but those were on a smaller scale compared to AT&T.

The outages started overnight and at one point impacted more than 70,000 customers.

As for what caused the outage, AT&T isn’t saying. All the company said in a statement was that, “Some of our customers are experiencing wireless service interruptions this morning. Our network teams took immediate action and so far three-quarters of our network has been restored. We are working as quickly as possible to restore service to remaining customers.”

A defense official told Fox News that there was "no indication it was a cyber attack."

The Federal Communications Commission said it was aware of the outages. 

"We are aware of the reported wireless outages, and our Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau is actively investigating," the FCC posted on X. "We are in touch with AT&T and public safety authorities, including FirstNet, as well as other providers."
