This link http://online.comcast.net/networkhealth/outagecheck.aspx gives "current" outage reports, but, obviously, it is useless when I can't go online. Is there a link to "past" outage reports so I can determine, after the fact, whether my inability to go online was the result of my equipment failure or a system failure?
Doubtful since that site will have reports from 3 months back listed nationwide for an error that doens't affect all areas. Also it seems once a problem is fixed there is no archive site for the outage board. Long time issue with the accuracy of that board if you search the forums. I usually try to call and see if I can get a message on outages then keep a written record. Also postings in the forums might give a clue to reported outages by other customers, hopefully they listed where they are at.
I haven't seen any archives and has inaccuarte as the outage board has been I wouldn't be sure if I trusted that information.
