We have confirmed with our ISP that there is an outage on the east coast that is causing intermittent delays with our internet service. At the moment, our connection seems to have stabilized, but the time frame for a fix is unknown, and there is no indication if lengthy outages are still possible. We are in constant communication with our provider to get more detailed updates.

As more information becomes available, we will pass it along.

Thanks very much for your patience and understanding.

Next Tuesday, December 16 at 10PM Network Operations will be switching the campus to our new Internet provider.  The procedure has been planned to create very little interruption to service but to be on the safe side users should expect up to a one hour outage for Internet services which can include email.  If anyone experiences disruption of any service beyond that please let the helpdesk know.

Thank you.
