Internet outages from power outages

Mike Pedelty, a regional spokesperson for Spectrum, said all internet outages in the area are resulting from downed power lines. Because of the way lines transmit power from customer to customer, some may have power but be without internet service, he said. Spectrum did not have an estimate on the amount of outages in the area.
