CenturyLink: Internet service will be fully restored in about 4 hours

The outage began early in the day and continued into the evening, the Associated Press reported.

Many CenturyLink customers across the US were without internet Thursday amid a lengthy outage that stretched from NY to California.

WyoLotto officials said they would postpone announcing Wyoming's winning state lottery numbers and winnings for the day until after the outage was over.

The Boston Police Department said Friday there were 911 outages across MA. You can also call the 10-digit police or fire department number for your specific area.




"After pushing the information to all other methods we chose to send the message via EAS (Emergency Alert System) and WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) to ensure everyone was aware of the outage", CRESA said in a press release Friday morning. "While we can somewhat tailor the range of these alerts, due to our close proximity to OR there was some bleed over into that area".

The Massachusetts State Police said that a nationwide outage affecting CenturyLink, a Louisiana-based internet communications company, is affecting 911 calls placed on cellular phones in Mass. Calls made to 911 using a landline appear to be working, State Police said.

CenturyLink posted several times via Facebook that it was working to solve the issue. DownDetector reported initial signs of the outage around 4 a.m. ET Thursday.

"When an emergency strikes, it's critical that Americans are able to use 911 to reach those who can help", Pai said in a statement. The Idaho Department of Labor is just one of many state government agencies affected by the outage.
