Union Wireless experienced a network-wide disruption on October 31, 2016. According to Brian Woody, chief customer relations officer for Union Wireless, that outage appeared to be caused by a power surge emanating from the Cheyenne area causing a circuit failure. "Although there are redundancies built into the system to prevent such a disruption, a circuit failure still occurred. Once the circuit was reactivated, it took hours for all of the links to be checked and reconfigured. There are literally thousands of links that need to be verified in such an instance." Woody further stated "We apologize for the frustration and inconvenience this caused. We also know how important our service is to the region, not only for our customers, but for the hundreds of thousands of people with other carriers that roam on our network. We are determining what caused the outage as well as taking steps in preventing future similar issues."
