Cablevision Crashes

Sure, Cablevision service went down last night.


Including TV, internet and phone.

Pretty much throughout Fairfield County. And beyond.

On a night when tons of customers wanted to watch the Yankees-Red Sox game. Or “Breaking Bad.” Or plenty of other shows.

CablevisionIt was a definite annoyance. And hearing that the cause was a power failure in Norwalk led plenty of people to ask, “They don’t have a backup generator?”

Still, the level of vitriol expressed online was scary.

Most communication devices were out, but if you could access Twitter, you could make your feelings known.

A quick search for “Cablevision” on Twitter brings up some scary stuff.

It’s a cable company. It was down for a few hours. It’s back up now.

I think.
