Due to the Nashville Christmas bombing, mobile phone and Internet services from Nashville to Alabama are still interrupted.
The problem is affecting 911 services and the internal networks of major regional hospitals.
Early Friday morning, a bomb-like RV outside the AT&T building in downtown Nashville blew up and services in the area dropped.
According to “News Channel 5”, in addition to consumer services on AT&T and T-Mobile networks, the outage also affected 911 operations.
According to local ABC branch WKRN, on Saturday morning, the Sumner Regional Medical Center in Gallatin, Tennessee, 30 miles north of Nashville, was still finding network and system problems.
The hospital is currently unable to obtain electronic medical records, so it is forced to switch to paper.
AT&T said in a public statement earlier on Saturday that it has two portable cellular base stations in downtown Nashville. The company said it is deploying other portable sites in the Nashville area and the area.
Overnight, a fire broke out at the damaged facility, forcing evacuation.
The company is committed to restoring property rights. The statement said: “Currently, our team is working with safety and structural engineers on site.”
According to reports, service disruptions across the country, but the most affected areas are central Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.
Last Friday, a brief flight in and out of Nashville International Airport caused communication problems. The Federal Aviation Administration website said the flight was still delayed by about 15 minutes on Saturday morning.
