This week we definitely left Red Queen territory for a visit to the Land of Gods Who First Make Men Mad.
CenturyLink will be performing software upgrades on its equipment serving our network sometime between 11 PM Thursday, April 6, and 5 AM Friday, April 7. The outage should be no more than ten minutes.
Our network will experience one or more brief outages between 7:30 and 9:30 AM tomorrow (Friday, 1/6), as CenturyLink pulls the trigger on a major speed increase for our service. Continue reading
CenturyLink added a new planned outage today for May 4, to repair equipment at their Phoenix interchange. To make tracking easier, here is a consolidated list of their outage plans so far:
|April 26||3 AM||4 AM||1 hour|
|May 4||midnight||1 AM||1 hour|
|May 5||midnight||2 AM||2 hours|
As with all CenturyLink outage schedules, the actual outage may or may not begin precisely at the scheduled time or last for the entire time reserved. Each of these outages will probably impede our subscribers’ ability to access the internet during the period of the actual maintenance.
CenturyLink has changed the scheduled time of their April 26 outage at the Beardsley interchange to between 3:00-4:00 AM.
In addition, they’ve scheduled an additional outage of up to two hours on May 5 to correct the same equipment defect at the Phoenix interchange, between midnight and 2:00 AM.
Both these outages are expected to interrupt the operation of Grand Avenue Broadband’s network service during some or all of the periods specified.
There will be a total service outage of up to an hour sometime between 11 PM and midnight next Tuesday (4/26), while CenturyLink replaces networking equipment at Beardsley that suffers from a known manufacturer defect. We will post updates if CenturyLink revises this schedule.
We just this minute received notification from CenturyLink that this outage, previously scheduled for last Thursday, has been rescheduled for tonight between midnight and 6 AM tomorrow. The outage should last no more than five minutes.
CenturyLink has just informed us that they will be taking our network gateway offline for up to 90 minutes sometime between midnight and 6 AM on Wednesday, February 24 (two weeks away), to perform an upgrade on CenturyLink’s own network. This means that the greater internet will be unreachable by our subscribers during this 90-minute period.
