Spectrum Fails - Nationwide Blackout From the Eastern Seaboard North To South all the Way To California
By: H.T. Coffee - TapWires News Service
In a stunning perhaps historic failure, Spectrum leaves millions of customers in the dark nationwide. Literally, millions of Spectrum internet, phone and cable subscribers have been facing outages for more than a month but Black Friday or Blackout Friday as we Spectrum customers call it, is when the stuff officially hit the fan.
The outage map from this morning provided by Spectrum is nationwide. Seems the only place their service is not down is where they don’t provide service at all. If I had any Spectrum stock I'd short it or whatever it is you do when you think a stock is about to tank. (Disclaimer - I know jack about stocks so if you are listening to me for stock advice you have made a huge error. This is just opinion not buy, sell or trade advice - but still there are millions in blackout areas)
In the first map you can see the general areas where service is out in the second you can see more detail. If you have service with Spectrum there is a good possibility your service is out – whether it is cable, residential phone, internet residential and business, and cell phone services. Congratulations Spectrum, this may be the largest cable, internet, phone and cellular outage in history … which just happened to call on Black Friday as everybody was trying to do their cyber shopping, family movie watching, and calling and emailing family members.

So, what’s the problem? Well it is hard to say exactly. We do know that Spectrum just went all digital and combined Bright House, Time Warner and Spectrum Charter into one mega-company Spectrum. Perhaps that created problems. Then there is the possibility of a cyber-attack.
But their website is no help. I asked to chat with an agent for my zip code and told that they were not able to answer questions for former Bright House customers at this time. But we haven’t been Bright House for more than a year.
Something big has happened. Right now, the company is being tight lipped about the problem. But you can bet that this is going to cause more than a ripple when this shakes out. They have virtually shut down millions of people on one of the largest cyber shopping days of the year. Not only that we missed the Florida – Florida State game as well as the Alabama – LSU game. I realize that the left might end the world tomorrow but still the Alabama game. If only cryin’ Chuck Schumer was from Alabama or Louisiana – we’d have an investigation.Cable, Internet, Cellular, Spectrum, Phone Service, Nationwide Outage, Dark From Sea to Shining Sea
