Access to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC)

Access to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC)

I was informed by the Office of Information Technology at UMBC that users of Comcast's internet services -- including me -- were having problems accessing UMBC http://www.umbc.edu/.

 

I hope that this problem will be promptly corrected.

FWIW, I called Comcast and around 10AM they escalated my call to the Advanced Support team.

 

Haven't heard anything back yet.

 

Will let you know when I do.

No word from Comcast yet, but I was just able to connect to umbc.edu.

Sometimes it works, but access is not reliable. I just got the below:

 

This site can’t be reached

my.umbc.edu took too long to respond.

Very "hit or miss".  I have issues with some sites and machines at UMBC.

 

It seems the problem has become more widespread in the last hour or so.  Slowness and connection issues to other domains such as Google and Comcast.

 

Possibly a bigger issue than just access to UMBC.
