TWC customers experience cable, internet outages

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Viewers across the Midlands and the state experienced cable, phone and internet outages Sunday afternoon.

WIS viewers and Time Warner Cable customers from the Columbia, Richland and Lexington County areas reported their internet and cable services were interrupted for at least an hour Sunday afternoon.

The cable company acknowledged the issues for South Carolina customers on their Twitter account, saying, 'Attention South Carolina customers: We're currently investigating a service outage.'

A spokesperson for Time Warner told WIS that the service outage was a result of a commercial power outage at one of Time Warner's facilities. For security reasons, she would not say where the facility was. 

As of 6:30 Sunday evening, all service had been restored in the Columbia area.
