There is a major network outage for Level 3 communications in the Northeastern US. This outage will impact customers connecting to the NYC cluster or living in the region. Time Warner Cable customers may experience total outages while emergency repairs are made. Other customers may see slower than usual speeds to NYC until the Level 3 peer comes back online.
To be clear, this situation is on transit fiber and is out of Viking's control. It will impact a huge number of websites and web services operating in the region, as Level 3 is one of the primary providers in the NE United States.
If we get any updates on the situation and a timetable, we will update this post.
