Time Warner Says Services Are Restored After Nationwide Outage

A massive outage affected Time Warner customers across the country Wednesday morning.

Posted on

Update — Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo said the outage would be investigated by regulators as part of a review of Comcast's proposed merger with Time Warner.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Cuomo said, "Today's widespread internet outage that has apparently impacted more than 11 million customers at Time Warner – which is based in New York – is a stark reminder that our economy is increasingly dependent on a reliable broadband network."

Update — At 10:30 a.m. Time Warner Cable said services were restored for all customers.

Services should be restored for all customers; our apologies for the interruption. If you're still having issues, please let us know. ^BP
