“Here We Go Again”: Third Spectrum Outage in Weeks Wipes Out Service in Montana

Phillip Dampier November 6, 2018 Charter Spectrum, Consumer News No Comments

Parts of Montana were left without phone, internet, or cable television service for the third time in the last few weeks after the latest outage from Spectrum caused widespread interruptions.

“Here we go again,” complained Spectrum customer Greg Dugdale. “Charter/Spectrum phones and internet down in Havre and then they are back up, then they are down again.”

The worst affected area is Great Falls, which is coping with its third major service outage.

KRTV-TV reported Spectrum officials are blaming repairs being performed on a third-party carrier’s network for the latest service interruption. Although Spectrum was aware of the problem, they were completely reliant on the other provider to correct it.

Customers are increasingly frustrated about Spectrum’s repeated service problems. An outage in early October wiped out service for almost 48 hours. Last Friday, another outage took out service for several hours. In both cases, the company blamed damage to a fiber optic line, for which it apparently has no backup.

Spectrum officials apologized for the interruption, but will not issue automatic service credits for affected customers. Those looking for a credit will need to reach out to Spectrum customer service to request one.
