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.
