CLEVELAND — Sprint users across Ohio and cities across the Midwest were experiencing “intermittent voice issues” Wednesday.

In a statement, Sprint said service was fully restored at around 11:30 p.m. ET.

The company tweeted, “The intermittent voice issue has been resolved and service is fully restored in Midwest and other markets. Maintaining reliable service is our top priority and we deeply apologize to all customers impacted.”

Earlier Wednesday evening, Sprint confirmed the issues in a tweet, saying:

“Some customers in the Midwest may be experiencing intermittent voice issues. Our team is working quickly to resolve the issue and we apologize for the inconvenience.”

Hundreds of social media users reported issues with making and receiving calls using Sprint cellular devices.

Sprint assured Twitter users “our network team has already identified the issue and is working to resolve it as quickly as possible.”

Once again, the company says service has been restored.
