CenturyLink customers have been experiencing outages for most of Thursday.

The outage began early in the day and continued into the evening. "The CenturyLink technical teams will continue to work around the clock until services are restored".

Residential customers have also tweeted some harsh words, mostly about the lack of updates and customer service from CenturyLink.

Jessica Rosenworcel, a member of the Federal Communications Commission, said via Twitter that this was a "nationwide outage" and her agency needed to investigate.

Pujara’s hundred puts India in command in third Test against Australia
Pujara consumed 319 deliveries for his 106-run knock as none of India's top five batsmen scored at a strike rate of more than 50. In comparison, Rohit was more sedate and took his time at the crease, even as Tim Paine targeted him with some banter.

A number of internet users in Idaho, Utah, Montana and the Western U.S., are, well, without the internet. Rather than using digital devices, they had to take notes with pencil and paper, according to the Greeley Tribune.

Officials in Jefferson Co. told 13 NEWS they were receiving reports of outages in the area.

The Cochise County Sheriff's Office said their CenturyLink system had crashed, and they were redirecting all 911 and administration lines to the Douglas Police Department.
