Cable outage reported in West Lawrence

May 16, 2013


Cable service to parts of West Lawrence was out for several hours on Thursday, reportedly after a cable was cut somewhere in the area. A spokeswoman for Wow!, which recently took over Knology, confirmed there was an outage in Lawrence but had no specific information about it.

After a brief report on the outage was sent out via Twitter, one Twitter user reported that cable service had been out since 4 p.m. Thursday at his house in the area of Havard Road and Wakarusa Drive. Service had not been restored by 10 p.m.

Does this mean I have to go outside instead of playing WOW?!?

Satellite is great! err, until you have heavy rain, snow, high winds that whip the neighbors trees around and interrupt your signal, sun spots, etc. When you want to watch TV to check on severe weather, satellite doesn't cut it.

I can't remember the last cable outage I had. I had regular outages with satellite interferences. Funny how that works sometimes.

What? Who has "almost weekly" outages with the formerly local cable company? I've had them for years and can count the outages on one hand.

LOL, loved the letter from WOW CEO that was signed Hugger, Mother and Keeper of the Culture. Did not have an experience yesterday that was "Building a better cable experience" either.

"Hugger, Mother and Keeper of the Culture"

I have a friend that hasn't gotten rid of wowknology yet and he showed me a letter he received that was signed that way. We enjoyed deriding it together. Bonding.

You want quality?? You don't get an offshore bank account with "quality" as an incentive for making profit.

no cable=no internet no cable=no phone so, to the above poster, yes, it's a big deal.
