How to Find Local Outages for Phone, Cable, and Other Sites & Services

submitted on July 12, 2013 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
I just found this site today - because I searched for information about an AT&T outage in south Texas .

This site is like a "weatherman for the digital world," detecting when technology fails and reporting what is going on to the public. You can also follow them on Twitter or Facebook .

Downdetector collects information from several sources and provides a realtime overview of status information and outages for all kinds of services like internet providers, mobile providers, airlines, public transport and other online services.

You can report outages yourself on the site or at the company links provided.

    Might have to try this out and see how reliable it is. I have AT&T and sometimes my internet has gone down for a little while w/o explanation yet when I call AT&T about it they always claim there's no outages in my area
