What’s causing the outage?
Outages can be caused by a variety of factors such as company maintenance, tree damage, semi-annual sun outages or severe weather conditions like snow or high winds.
A sun outage, or sun spots, is an interruption in satellite signals caused by interference from solar radiation. The interference is caused when the sun is in direct line with a communication satellite and the sun’s radiation overwhelms the satellite signal.
These occur in the Fall and Spring each year.
