Description

AT&T satellite facilities will be experiencing sun related service degradations as a result of the alignment of the sun with our telecommunications satellite and ground stations.
Sun outages occur for a few days semi-annually when our satellite passes directly between the antenna on earth and the sun.  Radio frequency noise from the sun is stronger than the desired signal from the satellite, resulting in a brief service interruption.
