<snip>
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Thursday that about 19
percent of towers were still offline that morning down from 25 percent the
day after the storm.

Verizon Wireless, a venture of Verizon Communications and Vodafone Group
Plc, said on Thursday that about 96 percent of their cellsite were up and
running, up from 94 percent the day before.

Sprint, the No. 3 U.S. operator said that more than 80 percent of its
network was operating by Thursday evening.

T-Mobile USA, a unit of Deutsche Telekom, said it had completed 85 percent
of its restoration in New York by Thursday evening. However it is only 80
percent complete in Staten Island, a borough of New York.

So which wireless carrier is bringing down the average to 81%?
