Sprint reports network status
Posted: 12-Sep-2001 [Source: Sprint press release]

[The U.S. carrier, Sprint, is providing wireless phones to aid recovery efforts in New York City and Washington. Networks continue to be operational as heavy call volume begins to subside.]

Kansas City, Mo. -- Sprint long distance wireline and PCS mobile networks continue to be operational in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, DC.

However, four Sprint PCS cell sites remain out of service in the immediate disaster area. Many other sites across Manhattan are temporarily without service due to commercial power outages in certain areas of Manhattan.

In addition, some of these sites have lost their landline connection provided to Sprint PCS by other telecom carriers whose systems and facilities were seriously damaged in the crisis.

Our first priority is to restore service and we are exercising all measures to do so - working with various carriers and government authorities.

Two Sprint PCS cell sites located near the disaster location are in service and have been redirected to assist search and rescue efforts. The company is also working with federal, state and local officials to supply wireless phones for search and rescue efforts. In addition, Sprint PCS has provided wireless phones to the American Red Cross for use in recovery efforts.

Nationwide, the heavy call volume on the Sprint PCS wireless network has subsided everywhere except in New York City.

Sprint's long distance network is operational, however, customers calling New York City may not be able to complete their calls due to damage to facilities of local telecommunications providers.

All Sprint employees have been accounted for in New York City and Washington, DC and the company is doing business as usual.
