It seems like plenty of Canadians will be starting off Friday with a digital snow day of sorts, courtesy of the nationwide Rogers outage.
As early as 5 am ET on Friday, Rogers customers began reporting connection issues in areas including the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa, and Metro Vancouver.
Thousands of Canadians are experiencing problems with the internet, phone, alarm monitoring services, and even debit and credit card payments.

The massive telecommunications company has yet to issue a formal statement regarding the outage (probably because, you know, no internet), but an online outage map on Roger’s website shows how widespread the disruptions are.
As is par for the course in today’s world, if a major corporation causes an outage, make fun of it on Twitter.
We feel bad for all you Rogers customers, here’s hoping you can steal your neighbour’s Wi-Fi and enjoy some jokes at the telecommunication company’s expense.
The “have you tried unplugging the router” joke is frequent, very appropriate, and bountiful. Kudos, internet. (And kudos, Koodo, for, you know, working.)

Can some Rogers employee please just go use the Bell internet at Starbucks to tell us what’s going on with this outage?

Rogers is experiencing a nation wide outage. Although if you’re on Rogers you probably wont see this.

Between the Rogers outage today and the issues with Air Canada, this should be sufficient proof that monopolies are a terrible thing

Blue Jays playing so bad that it’s owners Rogers decided to turn everything off, wait 30 seconds, and turning it back on to see if that will fix them. #NextLevel
