Amnet Internet outage said to be general problem

Amnet, the cable television and Internet provider, had more trouble Monday night.

The company reported a general outage of its Internet service, starting around 9 p.m. Some service was restored by midnight.

The company faced a damaged fiber optic cable last week. That left customers in the province of Cartago without service for two days. Readers in Escazú complained of outages last week, too, but the company said that this problem was local and only in Sabana.

The company has its own connection to the international cables. During frequent outages, the company’s Web site is available suggesting that it is not the transmission lines that are the problem but the company’s hookup with the World Wide Web. Television service is far more stable.
