Comcast Outage

Postby Pacman » Thu Apr 07, 2005 10:17 pm

Did any other U.S. Comcast High-Speed customers from the Cafe lose their Internet service tonight? I had no service since around 7 pm (its 10:15 pm now). I waited about 15 minutes on the phone for a Comcast flunky to tell me that Comcast experienced a nationwide service failure tonight. I was checking here to see if he was B.S.ing me...

My service just came back, and it's still very slow and clunky.


Anyone else have a similar experience tonight?

Yeah, it's been bad all night. Not out - but very close. It was nearly impossible to do any work online tonight for me (in Atlanta).

A nationwide outage for Comcast? Wow..... 8-o

I don't use Comcast, but I'm interested to see just how true this really is.

Wish that I could help but I can't.......yet. For those of you that remember, I was supposed to be working there a while ago. Well, an old job called me up, asked me back for a while, and gave me a nice raise to do so. I put Comcast on hold at the time but am hopefully interviewing for a job there soon. It's a completely commisioned sales job but the potential is great. My buddy just took home $7K for 2 weeks. :-)

I might also be able to set you guys up with some good deals even though you're not in my service area. I gotta check on that and actually get hired first. :-b

Yes it is :-) . Probably my most favorite picture of her (at least my favorite one that's postable :-D ).

Yup. It's her and I might even say that it's my favorite. Sexy as all hell and I like a girl that has some work done but not too much. Those older pics are pre-work. :-°
