No it’s not just you. It turns out that people across Vancouver are experiencing outages this morning.
Yes, if like certain people here at Daily Hive towers you spent your morning power cycling your router in the hope that you could check your latest ‘Gram notifications, then the good news is you weren’t alone as Vancouver-based internet service provider Novus experienced what looks like a system-wide outage on Wednesday morning.
Numerous customers woke up to find the service provider wasn’t working for them.
@Novusnow Yo Novus! Wake up! No service, no Novus website and no Novus phone support. It’s a no no no Novus morning. Please fix! Thank you.

@NEWS1130 Novus services (cable, Internet, their website) have been down over an hour with no word this morn despite a large # of customers trying to contact them. Did something happen to the company???

@Novusnow hi there. I sent a DM. Looks like Novus internet and tv service is down here. For the past hour at least.

The company did respond in a tweet and said they were aware of the problem and working as quickly as possible to fix it.
We are aware of an outage for some of our customers. We are working as fast as we can bring your service back up. Please stay tuned for updates and again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may bring you. ^RO

So until it’s back up and running, we should probably all go and read a book or something right?
