Internet Outage Comcast: Is this an individual computer problem, an internal network problem or a Comcast internet outage?
If no computers including those in different parts of the building can get to the internet but they can Get to the ThinSoft server then you likely have a Comcast Internet Outage. Normally when the internet goes out most customers call Comcast from inside the building. This is because you have to be in the building to follow their instructions. The YMCA has 2 Comcast accounts. 1 is for Business Class internet & VOS Only. the other is for Television service. Call Comcast at: 1-800-391-3000 choose tech support, choose internet. See www.TrustedCTO.com/ycomcast for more info.

4. Same Day support. As an alternative to setting off urgent alarms, keep calm. Traditionally our phone support can usually solve your urgent problems without a trip to the YMCA and without upcharges. Past issues like extended power outages helped your YMCA supervisors and TrustedCTO to work out alternates and plans to keep staff members and guests safe and semi operational during short outages. Ask you supervisor ahead about what to do in a power outage, Comcast outage or other low level emergencies caused by service interruptions. Often an old fashioned paper and pencil log can help staff serve members during internet service outages. Staff should have door keys and emergency numbers available and should locate a cell phone during power, internet or telephone outages.
Onsite same day support. Please note that: Same day onsite support is often available but not guaranteed. Same day support is not initiated without a live conversation between Y staff and TrustedCTO. Urgent same day or next morning support is billed double time plus double travel time and in addition paid meal breaks and reimbursed meals expenses may be charged for for any emergency work exceeding 3 hours. These fees exist but have never been necessary to date. See phone support above.
