Anyone else being affected by this internet outage? Not sure if this is allowed or not, I was just curious. Internet has been down 26hrs here. Cash only at a lot of businesses as debit readers are down. Thankfully I was able to get food and supplies might be a long weekend.

Currently on mobile...even that connection is uber slow.

Hope everyone is doing well despite this nonsense.

Not sure where you are but it is normal for us to have internet outages.
We have been rather lucky recently, the internet has only been down for a total of four and a half days over the last month which is really low for our area. Sometimes we loose it for over a week at a time, it really makes shopping a pain in the bottom, thankfully all the shops just write down how much you owe them and once everything is back to normal you just pay off your tab when you next go in there.....one bonus of living in a very small town.

Hope your connection is sorted out soon :)

It's an issue with Spectrum 25 states I think effected.
Still down here. States I know having issues for sure include but not limited to: Montana, TX, CA, MA, NC, MI, most of East coast. Just spectrum customers I believe.

Not a small town here, pain for businesses to lose internet since everything's mostly bought electronically anymore. This is one of many reasons depending on computers is a bad idea.

Glad you both have no internet issues. Skimped on phone data this month, cause we had wifi....my bad. Phone will not have data all month now. Oh well. Sucks though I have to click in at work with my phone and need internet connection.
