Updated March 24, 2020: While issues with Spectrum appear to have persisted throughout most of March 23, everything is back to normal as of March 24. There are still a handful of complaints regarding internet outages, but for the most part, things should be up and running.

What you need to know

  • As of March 23, Spectrum customers are experiencing outages across the U.S.
  • People are reporting problems with internet and TV services.
  • Issues are popping up in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and other areas.

With more people staying at home from school and work to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus, our internet infrastructure is being put to the test. More folks than usual are teleworking, doing online classes, or binge-watching Netflix, making now a less than ideal time for the network to go down.

Unfortunately, that's what many Spectrum customers around the U.S. are having to deal with right now.

It's unclear when things will clear up, but we'll have our eyes on this and keep you posted.

  • All good in my area of Dallas.
  • All good in San Antonio too.
  • Glad I don't have Spectrum, we are cord cutters and all our entertainment is streamed. Hopefully Verizon's FiOS can handle the load, I'm more confident that fiber optics can handle it rather than cable.
  • Spectrum up here in Southern Silicon valley, CA but nothing new about spectrum going up and down. They seem to do that allot
