Qwest Outage in Utah

Today there was a major Qwest backbone fiber cut by a backhoe just outside of Park
City, Utah. That fiber happened to be our main Internet
connection for the 80211.net data center. The fiber cut caused a complete network failure.  The outage started
around 9:00am, and repair of the 144-fiber trunk was finally completed
around 3:00pm. During that time a significant portion of the
80211.net network was down and without access.

We apologize for the outage, and will continue to explore ways to
implement even more redundancy in our neworks. If you were
impacted by this damage and unable to access the Internet, send us an
e-mail and we’ll add a day of credit to your account!
