Is Verizon down, not working or undergoing an outage today in 2023? [Cont. updated]

Over the years, Verizon Wireless has been rapidly adopting new technologies besides the classic phone services, including home internet through 5G networks.

And even though millions of people rely on its services to stay connected across the United States, the past year taught us that even the gigantic Verizon isn’t free from random cellular or internet outages.


Granted, this article will be keeping track of Verizon services whenever they are down, not working or experiencing an outage or downtime in 2023 for any reason.

Following are some instructions that’ll help you go through this tracker easily:

  • This is a text-only tracker that focuses on highlighting the incidents of outage and/ the service in question going down or becoming temporarily dysfunctional for some reason.
  • The outage reports highlighted in this tracker are based on user reports on social media platforms like Twitter & Reddit, along with Downdetector – a platform that monitors real-time problems and outages in popular services.
  • The time of the update is mentioned in IST and is in 24-hour format. Also note, the text updates will show up in ascending order with the latest coming at the bottom.
  • That’s all for the instructions.
    Note: Our team is trying hard to keep this tracker updated with all the latest info. However, if & when you feel something is missing, wrong, or should be added, do not hesitate to tip us in the comments or through email.
