T-Mobile offline during power shutoff in SF Bay Area

magenta-craig

    My house is in a safety power shutoff zone in the SF bay area, and our power was cut overnight because of wildfire risk. I was frustrated when I discovered that T-Mobile's signal also died during the planned outage, but other providers had a weak to decent signal for calls and texts.

     

    I live in a shallow valley in zip 94556 with a typical and steady 2-bar indoor signal. People throughout the shutoff zone reported no signal for T-Mobile.

     

    In all other things, T-Mobile is my hero. Can we count on you during emergencies in the future?
