Most of us with a decent Internet connection these days might have gotten far too comfortable in our respective comfort zones – that an outage, even a short one, might actually irk us to no end. Well, I guess the same applies to a bunch of Time Warner Cable’s Internet customers around the country earlier this morning when a brief outage happened. According to Time Warner Cable, “We appear to be recovering from a large but brief internet outage affecting most of our service areas.” A tweet from them did request for customers to “attempt to connect again.”
It seemed as though the outage happened sometime after 6:00 a.m. PT, affecting subscribers around the country – at least that was the impression we received. Plenty of folks took to Twitter as well to vent their frustrations on the outage. Good news is, the issue does seem to have been resolved already, yet again underlining how pervasive and influential an Internet connection is in our lives.
