OUTAGE: Some parts of West Seattle report CenturyLink trouble

Internet-service outages are generally not as simple to quantify as oh, say, power and water, but we’ll mention them here when there are reports from multiple areas. Molly said CenturyLink is out atop Genesee Hill and that it appeared to be a wider outage; she’s had trouble getting through to CL by phone. The crowdsourced site DownDetector shows trouble, and we checked around on Twitter; others who say it’s out for them are in areas from Admiral to Lincoln Park. (We’re just east of LP and ours is fine.) Anyone else?

    I was using google DNS and Swapping with fixes the issue

    I’ve had success switching to cloudflare dns instead of google DNS.  Was down on alki.

    Ours has been out since Thursday. Not sure if it is related. They have to send a new modem …annoying

    Just got home and had some weirdness with my CenturyLink connections, but rebooting my router/wireless seemed to fix it.

    It was having issues in Burien with centurylink fiber yesterday afternoon (8/14) but it seemed to resolve itself by EOD. I was using Google dns but switched to cloudflare just now (thanks Sam and EricLfor the tip!).

Sorry, comment time is over.
