  Avoiding the Internet blame game

If your company offers online services, it’s almost a given your customers will think your business is having issues before blaming their own slow Internet connections. Outages.io shows where the problems are happening, whether it’s their internal network, with their provider, or beyond their provider. Best of all, Outages.io is free to use, for as long as you need it. 

While all networks suffer occasional problems, most consumers don’t understand what goes into maintaining complex network environments to keep them running around the clock. Their first response is to blame whoever is in charge of their technology.

Losing customers because their own Internet services are unreliable is frustrating. Worse yet, sometimes unhappy customers will post and share negative experiences online, falsely pointing the finger at your company’s services and reliability instead of where the blame firmly belongs, their spotty Internet connectivity.
