BRESNAN UPDATE: Service restoration to GJ area 'stubborn'

11 News just spoke again with a Bresnan Communications customer service representative about phone and Internet service outages in our area.

Service is still not restored to all Bresnan Communication customers though a spokesman with Bresnan told us before 1 p.m. Friday that service restoration was 'imminent."

The customer service rep we just spoke with says Grand Junction and other cities in the area are still without service. "It's a little stubborn out there, we don't know why. We're working on it."

The outage started at 7 p.m. Thursday night.

Bresnan Communications Spokesman Shawn Beqaj says the outage affected at least four states, including Colorado, Montana, Wyoming and Utah. He says the cause was a corruption of the routing tables that spread to servers across their network, creating what industry insiders call a "broadcast storm."

Beqaj says the company has identified the problem and is working to prevent it from happening again.

Phone and Internet were the only services impacted. Cable was unaffected.

    Service back up in Cedar City, UT. Phone service still down though. Funny. When I signed up almost 2 years ago, service rep told me phone service was not linked to internet service. Really???
