Verizon Phone Service Outages
Saturday, September 1, 2001
We've been told that the recent Internet Outages that affected our Internet connectivity were wide spread throughout New England and that they were caused by a Verizon upgrade.
The outage seemed to affect more than just Internet connectivity as we've also been informed that parts of Boston and other places in New England were without their phone services.
To avoid interruption in our service in the future, c4.net will be installing a fiber optic connection to the Internet this summer. Fiber optics offer many advantages to traditional copper lines, not the least of which is improved reliability (both actual and perceived). At the same time, we will more than triple our current bandwidth (the size of our connection to the Internet).
