My bet is that it's a firmware problem somewhere in the backhaul systems that support the LTE. If it is I deed a 100% nationwide outage (and I have no idea if it is) then it's Alcatel or Ericcson that's at fault and VZW can't fix it instantly.

My questions are:

Is it affecting data card and Thunderbolt users the same way?

Why is it reverting to 1x instead of EVDO? I could see the Thunderbolt dropping back to 1x if something firmware caused it to fail because it uses the same chipset for 3G and 4G, but I don't think the data cards use the same combined processor.

It would be interesting to know some of the details, for sure!
