CenturyLink outage that affected Arizona customers continues Friday

CenturyLink outage that affected Arizona customers continues Friday

Over a dozen counties in North Texas were part of a nationwide outage that prevented people from calling 911 on their cell phones on Thursday night and into Friday.

The communications company confirmed in a Facebook post around 11 a.m. Thursday that their network is "experiencing a disruption affecting customer services", and some customers are not able to file help tickets on the CenturyLink website. ISP CenturyLink's network recently went down in certain parts of the U.S. (including Washington, Idaho, and Missouri) knocking out each location's 911 services in the process.

A Nationwide outage reaching from NY to California has been causing headaches since early Thursday morning.

A nationwide outage affecting CenturyLink customers temporarily impacted 911 calling capability for cellphones across the country and in MA, state police said.

National news sources reported the CenturyLink outage knocked out 911 call service in several states.

Capas said there had not been any reports of issues as of Friday morning. "We apologize for any inconvenience this is causing residents trying to reach departments", Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski tweeted Thursday afternoon.

"The CenturyLink service outage is ... completely unacceptable, and its breadth and duration are particularly troubling", said Pai in a statement.

CenturyLink didn't provide details of the problem and it didn't indicate how many customers were affected.

Jessica Rosenworcel, a member of the Federal Communications Commission, said via Twitter that this was a "nationwide outage" and her agency needed to investigate.

The shutdown affected some state agencies in Idaho, including the Department of Education's office phones and the Department of Correction's inmate phone system.
