T-Mobile confirmed the outage via email to Entrepreneur.

” A commercial power outage that occurred earlier today caused intermittent impacts to voice calls, data, and messaging in some parts of the Northeast,” the company stated in a statement. “Our teams will continue to work on full service restoration. “

Just last week a major outage hit T-Mobile users when many were receiving error messages that said “LG IMS has stopped,” primarily affecting LG phones on the T-Mobile network, essentially shutting down service for users using certain phones on the network.

The error was fixed after Reddit users explained how to change their phone settings to fix it.

T-Mobile was down around 6% year over year near market close on Tuesday.
