MetrcoCast Internet (105 Mbps) Outage April 1, 2016, in Alton, New Hampshire, Around 4pm.

metrocastlogo2016About a 30 to 40 minute outage Friday, April 1, 2016 (yes, April Fool’s Day) around Alton & Barnstead, New Hampshire. Started getting jerky response and page load failures BEFORE the service completely went down. From my experience it last approximately from 4pm to 4:40pm. Put a call through to MetroCast. By the time they called back (per their callback feature) Internet service, at a full 110 Mbps, per, was up and running. They admitted that there had been a problem and that they had been unaware of it for 20 minutes.

Just documenting it here (now) for the record (so that I can just search this blog for outages). There is (and has always been) method to my apparent madness.

Coincidentally or otherwise TDS was holding their “TDS TV” open house in Alton at the same time. Strange?
