T-Mobile has released an update on the network issues it has seen over the past two days, revealing which cities are still affected and what users can do during that time The issues are mostly limited to various parts of Texas where unexpectedly severe winter weather has caused power outages and other problems

According to T-Mobile, the winter storms on the weekend and through Monday are the cause of the network problems.Some areas lost power because the ice strained the power lines – and as of Monday, several cities were still affected, most of them in Texas

T-Mobile says it has network problems related to the storms in San Antonio, Austin and Rio Grande Valley in Texas and unspecified “parts” of Oregon. Workers cannot restore service unless safety conditions so allow This problem is made worse by the recent winter storm warnings and heavy snowfall

If you are one of those people who cannot currently connect to T-Mobile’s network, the company recommends that you try using WiFi calling on devices that support it Of course, this assumes that you still have electricity and the Internet at home. Otherwise, T-Mobile recommends sending texts instead of making calls

Assuming you have access to the cellular network, T-Mobile asks you not to make calls unless necessary This is due to increased congestion as a result of the network problems. In the last update, T-Mobile noted that some parts of Austin are back online and the city began “Restoration Progress” on Monday afternoon
