  • Windows Update Is Causing Brief Interruptions In Service

    UPDATE 7/15/16 - After all windows computers in your home or business are done getting their monthly updates the internet returns to normal. We are still monitoring the situation closely to make sure it is resolved before the next upgrade cycle.

    7/13/16 (read more)

    Something broke in the Windows update network yesterday. The Microsoft cloud seems to be stuck in high gear, and is pushing updates as fast as it possibly can and completely overwhelming residentail and business internet services. In one instance we monitored over 150 Mbps of traffic being sent to a user with 3 Mbps of service. That customer was completely knocked offline.

    If you ARE experiencing extreme slow downs, you can turn off any windows PCs you have, or temporarily disable automatic updates. Please call our office for additional support. 800-253-2511

    If your internet is running fine, there is nothing you need to do. In most cases after windows update is done, your internet will return to normal.

    We will continue to monitor the issue and search for a workaround. When this problem is resolved, we will remove this warning message.
