'Sun outages' expected this month

Posted: Tuesday, October 05, 2004

Customers of all cable television, Internet and long-distance telephone companies using satellites could experience brief disruptions in service during the first three weeks of October due to a seasonal solar occurrence known as a "sun outage." The outages could disrupt telephone calls to and from locations within Alaska, the Lower 49 states and international locations.

Each outage could last up to 15 minutes, although the length of the outages will vary. Land-based services such as fiber optics and microwave are not affected by sun outages.
