Widespread Internet Outage in Western Montana – Also Affecting California And The Midwest
This particular computer may be one of the only ones to still have internet access in western Montana.
As of about midnight on Tuesday, Charter Communications reported a widespread outage that not only is affecting internet connectivity, but has also spread to its telephone service, as well.
According to a Charter coverage map, there are widespread outages in western Montana, California and in the Midwest.
Repeated attempts to contact Charter were met by an email that said 'We are aware of a service disruption that is impacting customers in the Missoula area and are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.'
It is not known just how many businesses and households have been without internet access since midnight, but KGVO has received reports of outages from as far south as Corvallis all the way to Missoula. Townsquare Media offices and radio stations in Missoula have been without internet since just before 3:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
Meanwhile...this computer will continue to be a lonely outpost in an internet wasteland.....
