'All hands on deck' for internet outage

Arvig customers impacted by statewide disruption

We are part of The Trust Project.

PERHAM — Arvig internet customers woke Tuesday, Oct. 25 to find the internet was down, and some were also faced with landline phones not working properly.

Arvig responded, reporting on their social media page that a statewide internet outage began around 7 a.m. and affected their customers across the state.

The Perham-based internet service provider went on to say they had “all hands on deck” as they worked to resolve the outage.

"We appreciate our customers and understand your frustrations," the post continued. "Please be patient as we work through this!"

Before noon Arvig had most of their customers back online and phones were in working order.


In an Arvig Business Facebook post, the company stated, "If you're still without service, hang tight! We're working towards a full restoration as quickly as we can."

The company also apologized for the frustrations caused by the interruption of service.
