As the storm’s path continues to move further north into Louisiana, we remain committed to keeping our customers, their families and the public safety community connected. Overall, our wireless network in Texas and Louisiana is performing well. We continue to assess damage and we are working to address wireless and wireline customers who were affected by storm damage and power outages. With extensive flooding and commercial power outages in parts of the state, back-up batteries and generators continue to provide power to our facilities.
Our teams have begun deploying network recovery equipment to support customers and first responders, and have an arsenal of additional assets on standby to deploy if needed. Our teams and FirstNet liaisons are in contact with federal, state and local officials on our deployment efforts to support public safety and the communities in the storm’s path. In areas where the storm has passed, our teams will assess damage and begin to make repairs as quickly and safely as conditions allow.
