NORTH BROOKLYN – Spectrum internet went down in North Brooklyn overnight on Friday, September 15th, leaving residents without connectivity—or real answers—for hours.
Somewhere around 1:00 am, customers began to report losing internet service from Spectrum.
The problems persisted throughout the morning, with the company announcing an “outage due to vandalism,” but details remained unclear.
Local Union, No. 3 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) has been on strike against Spectrum since the spring.
Spectrum tweeted their awareness of the problem by 8:30 am, but couldn’t give an ETA on when service would be restored:
On downdetector.com, a site that tracks service interruptions, trackers showed a massive spike in reports to the internet company.
An info-map revealed a cloud of red outages over northwest Brooklyn.
Areas in central and southern Brooklyn were unaffected by outages.
Internet users began to report restoration of service around noon on Friday.
