Reasons for using Outages.io

One-Sided Contracts

 You’re stuck in a “best effort” agreement with your Internet Service Provider. It means your provider  does its best but guarantees only the speed to the street. But they still need to provide reliable services. Outages.io gives you the facts you need when problems occur.

Connection Issues

We rely on the Internet for almost everything. Reliable Internet is a must for Voice over IP (VoIP) phone or if you work from home. Intermittent problems are frustrating but Outages.io helps by providing the details you need to see what’s happening with your Internet  connection and provider.

Critical Services

Internet connected video doorbells, Alexa, Google Nest, home security, all stop working without it. Let Outages.io alert you when your home is no longer connected. This is especially critical with elderly Internet connected services. Can grandma still call out or is no one able to reach her? 

You’re Not Alone

If you are experiencing connection issues, your neighbors might be too.  Get nearby friends and family to use Outages.io and suddenly connectivity issues get much clearer. Share your facts on your provider’s social media pages to get help.  It’s hard to deny a problem when multiple people are experiencing it!

 All-In-One

One Tool Does It All

Outages.IO helps you monitor your Internet service from your perspective, something outage sites and speed testing can’t do. When you are experiencing issues, sometimes it’s hard to convince your provider a problem exists if you don’t have proof to show them. Or, by the time you get through to tech support, your connection returns to normal.

When you install the free Outages.io software, your dashboard shows you when, where and who is having the connection issue.  Is the problem in your building, with your provider or is it their upstream provider? Outages.io lets you see what’s going on now and historically. Your dashboard reports the last 50 events your connection has experienced.  You can even enable instant notifications to alert you to potential outages or other problems.

Outages.io is about empowering consumers to see an otherwise invisible service. Use it to find problems or simply because you are curious. Best of all, Outages.io is free, easy to learn and use for non-technical consumers, yet includes a lot of details for those interested in digging deeper.

Testimonials and Feedback

We really appreciate the feedback we’ve received from our users. Thank you for taking the time to help us improve and make Outages.io work for you!

Provider fixed neighborhood problems thanks to Outages.io

Several months ago, I started experiencing intermittent problems. Every time I’d call my provider they told me everything looked fine. Things got worse and I found Outages.io while looking for ways to monitor the problem. Within days, I was seeing regular outages only two hops away.

I posted on our neighborhood board asking if others had any problems and several people said yes. Two of them decided to install Outages.io and now all three of us could see the exact same problem. The cable provider refused to acknowledge the information sent but we soon saw a truck working in the neighborhood. I stopped to chat with him and he had no idea at all about IP, he kept saying there was a signal issue in the area.

I know for sure that sending them our combined data had an effect and things have been great since. 

Customer issue solved

In one case the problem appeared to have existed on the customer’s equipment, but I had an ongoing saga with their previous ISP trying to get them to repair a VDSL line fault. They repaired the line but outages were still occurring somewhere within the ISP equipment, as in the end we switched ISP and the problem is resolved, as proved by Outages.io monitoring!

I reconfigured the clients entire WiFi network (several point-to-point connections across a large site) – full factory reset and set up from new, and the intermittent issues seem to have disappeared.

Thanks again for such a helpful tool, and the great support. I’ll be sure to recommend the service to others. I’ve got a couple of websites where I’ll add blog posts to promote your services.

Helped with WOW problems

I like you guys. A LOT. I’ve used your online agent and it really helped me hold WOW’s feet to the fire to fix an issue.
Now I’d like to actually buy your hardware agent.   Almost IMPOSSIBLE to do! I know there is a link somewhere to do that, but I can’t find it. My suggestion… put a hot link on any page that mentions the hardware agent that says BUY NOW! 

So, please send me a link or give me some guidance.  While the software agent is great, I know that the hardware agent will be well worth the money, especially when my wife keeps turning off her laptop! 🙂    TYVM, John 

Thanks John! We listened to your feedback!

Ooops!  We appreciate the input and have made it easier to buy the hardware agent. Some links were lost in recent updates. Please accept our offer of half price for your hardware.  🙂
