Extensive MediaCom Outage – UPDATE

UPDATE 07-12-2017, 2:00 PM – MediaCom has updated their information and now estimates they will be back up at approximately 6:30 PM.  Please keep in mind this is an estimate and conditions may change without SELCO’s knowledge. We will continue to monitor the situation.

MediaCom has confirmed that they are experiencing an internet outage affecting their customers in Minnesota, western Wisconsin, and northern Iowa. The outage is intermittent; sites are going up and down in an unpredictable manner. MediaCom says they working on the problem but have given no indication on when things will be back to normal. Libraries in the SELCO region using MediaCom for internet are:

  • Chatfield Public Library
  • Caledonia Public Library
  • Cannon Falls Public Library
  • Hokah Public Library
  • Houston Public Library
  • Lanesboro Public Library
  • Preston Public Library
  • Rushford Public Library
  • Spring Valley Public Library

We are monitoring the situation but some of the intervals between being up and down are too short for our monitoring systems to track. We will continue to watch the situation as closely as we can and will post an update when we learn more.
