Spectrum Cable TV and Internet Offline for 6 Hours on a Monday

Monday, Monday, can't trust that day
Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday mornin' you gave me no warnin' of what was to be

Oh Monday, [Cable]*, how could you leave and not take me
* Monday (1966), The Mamas & The Papas

Shortly after 1 pm today, both Spectrum's television connection and its internet system went down without warning. Spectrum identified the problem as work only affecting "your area" and said it should return by 7:30 pm. The system was put back online six hours later, a little after 7 pm as rapidly as it had gone offline.

The outage was apparently planned for either repair or upgrade. Perhaps Spectrum could consider giving notice of such a complete shut down taking up an entire business afternoon. One wonders how many businesses took a hit by losing advertising and sales, and particularly when the economy is already at a low point.
