Verizon is currently experiencing a nationwide outage, according to Down Detector.

The company's outage map shows a large part of the country in the red, indicating a network outage. Customers are reporting they are unable to make calls.

In the comment section under the map, customers report they are unable to make calls and are receiving a "circuits are busy" message.

Verizon released this statement in response:

Overnight some wireless customers experienced a dialing error when placing calls from their wireless phone to a long-distance landline number. This issue was resolved at 6:30am ET . We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Reno Police Department tweeted earlier Wednesday morning that the company told them there is not an estimated fix time.
