AT&T and Verizon have resolved an outage causing dropped phone calls across the US. The issue seemingly affected calls between customers of the two services.

In the midst of the outage, AT&T spokesperson Jim Kimberly told The Verge, "Our network is not experiencing a nationwide outage. There is a nationwide issue that is affecting the ability of some customers to complete calls between carriers. We are working closely with Verizon to determine the nature of the issue and what actions need to be taken."

Verizon spokesperson Kevin H. King also said that the network was "operating normally" but noted that customers primarily in the Northeast and Midwest were having issues "when calling or texting with customers served by another carrier."

Although AT&T did not share the number of impacted customers, website Down Detector shows a spike in reports of issues using the service starting around 1 pm ET on Tuesday. Those numbers climbed in the hours that followed. By 6 pm ET, however, the number of reported incidents sharply declined, according to Down Detector.

The site listed New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis as among the cities with the most reports of issues.
