Verizon Communications, whose switching facility inside its headquarters building in lower Manhattan was flooded by the surge from the Sandy superstorm, has set up a temporary wireless antenna in Jersey City, N.J., just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. The company is also working to restore network sites in Manhattan, Queens and Long Island. Meanwhile, AT&T and T-Mobile USA are sharing their cellular networks in storm-hit areas of New Jersey and New York so their customers will be able to make calls on either network. The Federal Communications Commission reported that service outages were still common Wednesday in New York metropolitan area.
