Time Warner Cable is having a bad morning.

The cable giant’s Internet service is experiencing nationwide outages and customers are not pleased about it. According to this map from DownDetector.com, large blobs of Time Warner’s Internet service is down across America, so at least you’re not alone. The problem, which started around 3 a.m., is being blamed on “technical issues.”

There’s some good news! Betabeat Park Slope uses Time Warner and our Internet flickered back on a few minutes ago.

Stay strong, everyone.

Update: Time Warner released a statement to Recode:

At 430am ET this morning during our routine network maintenance, an issue with our Internet backbone created disruption with our Internet and On Demand services. As of 6am ET services were largely restored as updates continue to bring all customers back online.
