Company has not yet issued a statement about the outage

 

June 22: A widespread outage starting at about 4 PM Los Angeles time, appears to be affecting Charter internet customers across the U.S.

Citing sources within the company, Turlock California City news Says that the outage is due To a fiber optic cable which has been accidentally severed near Calabasas.

Service was restored in Woodland Hills today just before 1 p.m. PST

Downdetector.com says that outages have been reported in Charter Spectrum Internet, in Saint Louis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, Madison, Wheaton, Mountain View, Athens, and Sacramento. In Woodland Hills, people assumed the 6th straight day of above 100 degree temperatures had caused a power outage. But the Charter outage appears to be unreleated to high temperatures in the American Southwest.
