Another report of poor cell service in and around Beaufort County? You're shocked, we know.
Seriously though, apparently Verizon (which, if you didn't know is generally regarded as having the better local coverage) is the latest to have issues.
Seems no one is entirely sure what the issue is, so why not blame it on those Yankees striking in New York.
You can read The Island Packet's coverage of the local issue over here.
