[Update 1:40 am 9/18/2012] Internet service to the residential network was restored. Apparently this was due to a malfunctioning router in the Seattle area. This router was eventually replaced, restoring service.
[Update 12:10 am 9/18/2012] Internet service to the residential network is still unavailable or too slow to be useful. Estimates for return of service from Integra Telecom are now at least 3 AM.
Internet service to the residential network (residence halls, houses, and Union Ave housing) is unavailable and sporadic due to an outage in Integra Telecom’s network affecting the greater Seattle/Tacoma area. This issue is being worked on now, and service should be restored within 1 to 2 hours.
This outage does not affect the academic buildings or the university’s servers.
