AT&T offers $5 credit to customers after nationwide outage

On Thursday, February 22nd, Many AT&T customers were left frustrated due to a major network outage that impacted cellular and internet service across the United States.

Rather than deflecting blame or downplaying the issue, the company faced it head-on, demonstrating transparency and accountability.


AT&T expressed sincere apologies for the inconvenience and disruption

As a gesture of apology, AT&T announced that it would be offering a $5 credit to affected customers. While some may view this as a mere token, it’s a gesture that carries significant weight. Beyond the monetary value, it symbolizes AT&T’s recognition of the inconvenience caused and its desire to make amends.


In their statement, AT&T expressed sincere apologies for the inconvenience and disruption caused by the outage. They acknowledged the frustration experienced by their customers and their commitment to preventing similar situations in the future.

We apologize for Thursday’s network outage. We recognize the frustration this outage has caused and know we let many of our customers down. We understand this may have impacted their ability to connect with family, friends, and others. Small business owners may have been impacted, potentially disrupting an essential way they connect with customers.

Who qualifies for the credit?

The credit will be automatically applied to the accounts of AT&T Wireless customers who were impacted by the outage. However, it’s important to note that this excludes customers on AT&T Business, Prepaid, and Cricket plans.

To help make it right, we’re reaching out to potentially impacted customers and we’re automatically applying a credit to their accounts. We want to reassure our customers of our commitment to reliably connect them – anytime and anywhere. We’re crediting them for the average cost of a full day of service.

The $5 credit offer serves as a reminder of the importance of reliable communication networks. Moving forward, AT&T and other telecom providers need to prioritize network stability and take proactive measures to prevent similar disruptions in the future.
