CenturyLink subscribers were affected by a widespread internet outage across the U.S. on Sunday morning.
Over 10,000 CenturyLink subscribers reported problems, according to DownDetector.com. Out of the reports, 96% were related to internet services, with the most reported locations including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando, Portland, and Miami.
Amazon Web Services’ Giorgio Bonfiglio pointed out the CenturyLink service outage, which is apparently also affecting parts of Europe.
