WEIRD: The Internet Just Died For About 30 Seconds Around The Country


Updated: it looks like it is Time Warner’s fault — the company said it experienced a “large but brief Internet outage.”

We’re getting reports that the Internet — yes, the Internet — died for a brief period of time across the country.

We have heard reports that the Internet went out in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Raleigh, N.C., Dallas, several cities in the Midwestern United States and New York so far.

One customer said he was disconnected during the course of a phone call with Time Warner and called back to hear an odd message stating calls could not be completed at the time.

Got any ideas or heard about any additional outages? Feel free to apply however many conspiracy theories you like in the comments below or email me at [email protected]
