Widespread Internet Disruption

Looks like there was some fairly widespread disruption of internet services this morning, with users from LA, San Francisco, DC, New York, North Carolina and other areas experiencing loss of connectivity for anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes.

According to Gizmodo, the outage was on the Time Warner network, but sources at Rackspace indicate that Level 3 was particularly hard-hit.

Anyone else experience this issue of have ongoing problems?

Update: Time Warner’s twitter feed has more information on this problem, along with a slew of response tweets to affected customers:

Again, we’re recovering from a brief inet outage affecting most of our srvce areas.Pls attempt to connect again.Still down? DM us w/ yr info
