Internet Access Outage Wednesday, 4 February 2015

Update:¬†Wednesday, 4 February 2015 at 12:30 – The outage is now repaired. All three ISPs are routing Internet traffic for Malone’s campus.


Good morning, Campus!

At 12:21am this morning, one of our Internet Service Providers began experiencing an #outage that caused all web sites hosted West of Chicago to become unavailable to campus. Since Malone subscribes to several ISPs, we have temporarily rerouted all campus Internet traffic through our other two ISPs until our service provider can repair the issue.

All Internet access is up and running however we are operating with slightly less total bandwidth than normal. Other than noticing problems between when the outage began and when we made the routing change this morning, campus should not notice any difference with its connectivity during business hours (we ‘max out’ our campus bandwidth from around 4pm through 2am each day and anticipate that the problem will be repaired by then).
