Reconnecting: Spectrum TV, internet back up and running for Mainers

People all over the state were without Spectrum TV and internet service for almost 3 hours Monday night.

MAINE, USA — Mainers statewide once again have internet and TV service after a nationwide Spectrum outage Monday evening. 

“We’ve identified two separate fiber breaks in our network, impacting services for Spectrum customers in Maine and New Hampshire,” Lara Pritchard, Spectrum Northeast Region Senior Director of Communications, told NEWS CENTER Maine when Spectrum was experiencing issues. “These separate breaks have impacted our redundant path, which normally serves as backup when a break or damage is incurred in a part of the network.”

In a tweet at 5:53 p.m., Spectrum responded to the issue and said it is working as quickly as possible to restore service. 

Due to the outage, the City of Portland's meeting is now rescheduled for April 12.

And yes, this outage is even affecting our NCM team.
