Time Warner, currently known as Warner Media, is one of the largest mass communication companies in the world. They provide internet and cell service among other services.
A Time Warner internet or cell service outage can make you feel as if you are back in the dark ages. However, there are steps you can take to find out if there is a service outage or it is simply an issue with your device.
Troubleshooting should be your first move. These solutions will help you confirm if there is indeed an outage or there is a problem with your device.
Try the simple solutions such as turning your devices off then on again, disconnecting your cable/router and deleting files to create more space. If you do this and the problem still persists, you should try something else.
Check Service Outage Maps
Luckily, there are plenty of websites that report service outages from many service providers in the US. Such websites include Outage.Report and downdetector.com.
Internet outages can be as a result of a myriad of causes. However, there are some that are more common than others.
Some outages are caused by vandalism where people intentionally cut fiber optic cables. Such actions can cause Time Warner internet and cell service to be down for a long time as it may take Time Warner that time to replace or repair the cables.
Another common cause of service outages is network congestion. When too many people are trying to access Time Warner's network, the service quality is bound to deteriorate. Such outages are more prevalent in areas with high population density such as schools.
Natural disasters are also a major cause of failed links to Time Warner's network. Such disasters will wreak havoc and inevitably disrupt the network.
If Time Warner's network speed wildly fluctuates, it will appear like a service outage. Your devices will also not function optimally when connected to such service.
Equipment Failure is also a major cause for Time Warner service outages. Equipment failure caused by overlords and lock ups are very common and Time Warner technicians have to replace the hardware.
The outage report you use will also depend on the type to internet service you receive and/or provide. Internet and cell service outages happen to both homeowners and businesses.
If the service outage map states that there is indeed an outage in your area, the only thing you can do is wait patiently for Time Warner to fix the problem. If the map states that there is no outage in your area but you are not receiving internet or cell service, you should call Time Warner customer service.
