Social networks exploded Tuesday morning with customer inquiries and complaints because of a Level 3 Communications network outage across the United States.
It appears the outage started around 11AM EST, and according to the outage tracker Downdetector, hot spots on a heat map appear particularly colorful up and down the east coast and in California.
Level 3 has acknowledged the outage on its social media channels, including Twitter and Facebook.
Even the company's website was having some issues Tuesday morning.
Social media sites, including Reddit, have been filling up this morning with questions and comments about the outage, as well as notifications by organizations to their patrons as to why their voice communications are out.
Many expressed frustration over a lack of communication, while some chided Level 3 for not having such a redundant architecture after all, if speculation of a fiber cut was accurate.
