Shortly before 2 PM Eastern, our Windstream Internet Services were restored. We have contacted several our clients that are also Windstream clients and they too appear to be up now. Our Windstream rep tells us there is a traffic re-route in place around the fiber-optic cut. We're also told that this may have been connected to a fire in Chattanooga caused by fireworks. So far unable to find a news story to substantiate this. We're just happy the connection is working again. Thank you all for your patience during this outage.
