Yesterday we reported on the nationwide CenturyLink outage – an outage which is still going on in many parts of the country, more than 24 hours later. We also reported that as a result of this outage, many 911 emergency services were and are unreachable. Now the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is investigating the CenturyLink outage, calling the breadth and duration of it “unacceptable”.
Millions of people across the U.S. woke up to a nationwide, coast-to-coast CenturyLink outage. Hardest hit are New Mexico, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, and Washington state, however Centurylink is down in other states including California, Oregon, and the Northeast.
