Still Without U-verse TV, Internet? Restart Your Equipment, AT&T Says

AT&T says customers still without service should restart their equipment and call customer service for lingering issues

AT&T says customers still without working U-verse service more than 12 hours after an area-wide outage should restart their equipment and then reach out to customer care for lingering issues.

A fire at an AT&T switching station in Richardson cut U-verse television and internet service to much of North Texas Monday morning.

The outage lasted about 12 hours, with AT&T confirming at about 10:20 p.m. that technicians made repairs to the damaged facility and restored service to the area.

However, Tuesday morning, NBC 5 received several message from AT&T U-verse customers who said they were still without service.

We checked with AT&T who reassured us repairs made Monday night should have resolved the large-scale outage and they recommended customers restart their equipment.

"The facility is back online, so they're equipment should be working," an AT&T spokesman said. "Customers having problems should restart their equipment. If people are still out, they should contact customer care."
