November 16, 2011 – Comcast seems to be experiencing a system wide outage in the Gadsden, Alabama area.  The outage started at approximately 12:26 am.  We are working on finding out additional information.  The local system is running fine, but traffice is not able to flow outside of the Tuscaloosa routers where Comcast meets the rest of the internet.

Update: 1:17am – The outage is unplanned and priority critical, but there is no current estimated time to repair (ETR).

Update:  3:15am –  The repairs have been made.  Looks like Comcast got lucky again and had a major outage that occurred during off business hours.  We’re glad to see they are back online.  We have not been able to get an explanation of what happened yet, but if we do, we will post it here.
