Getting an internet outage can be one of the most annoying things that can happen. You might have been in the middle of a work project - or you simply woke up in the morning to the internet being down and derailing the rest of your days plans.
Making internet outages even more frustrating is when you're not even sure whether there is something wrong on your end, or if there is an issue with your broadband provider. Because not knowing where the fault lies means you'd be hard-pressed to try and fix the issue, and thus in these cases, waiting it out is probably the only option unfortunately.
But did you know that your broadband provider has a handy resource for you to check whenever you do have a broadband outage? Click the buttons below to visit their respective outage checkers.
If your broadband is down, then you won't be able to visit these pages using your home internet. In this case, use your mobile phone on mobile data by disconnecting it from your Wi-Fi!
Teleron, Sumo and Uniti Wireless do not have outage checker pages to visit.
However, you should check your providers respective Facebook or Twitter pages for the latest updates as well, as the providers can be quite active in making announcements via their social feeds.
