May I ask how you know that the "blackout" was coast to coast, if you can't find any news reports on the event?

Yes but it wasnt only on Monday, the service was getting weaker some days before that. My cel has excellent coverage normally even in weak areas and it was experiencing problems, I have just come back from an island trip and it was nil in some areas even in SD, their H.O. only said they have major problems throughout the DR, but they are working on it, there is a little improvement today, but its still not right. The calls were disconnecting even when I had full signal. Goodness knows what it will be like when the busy season starts

No cell phone reception in Santiago

My fiance tells me that he received a text message from Orange stating the lines were in the process being serviced.

I could not contact him from here in the States.

No problem.
I was just wanting to know how bad the problem was.
