Checking Online Services for Connectivity

Tags wifi

I can’t get onto my favorite online service! The network MUST be down! Right? Well…maybe not.

Sometimes online services break. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and streaming companies have bad days, too. The good news is there are two resources online which you can check to see if a particular online service is working or not. There are more than two, but these are some of our favorites.

DownDetector

http://downdetector.com

  • Features a quick splash page with all of the major ISPs and online services. Instantly see if your online services are up and running!

IsItDownRightNow

http://isitdownrightnow.com

  • Another site with all of the information you need right in one place.

In addition, some of these sites feature apps to load onto your favorite smart device (iPhone, Android) so you can always know the status of online service functionality like Xbox Live, PSN, Netflix, Hulu, Philo, Spectrum, and many more.

If everything else involving an internet connection seems to be working except for one particular service, check these sites. If you see a particular online service listed, contact that company's support. Otherwise, feel free to contact the Technology Service Desk.
