WOW Internet, Phone and Cable TV Company was known before it changed to WideOpenWest Networks. In most cases it will be related to broadband issues with the servers going down however, occasionally you’ll see other problems occur with customers also having trouble with their phone and TV.

    Still down and not working on higher number Wow Basic TV channels. From channel 17 (USA) and channel 19 are not working. When I try to use the remote to go to channel 56 it won’t and the TV reverts back to channel 17 ever time. Now if I go into the TV’s settings using the menu button on the TV’s Remote control thing the channel comes on. I can see though the opaque settings menu text on the screen and see channel 17 (usa) in the back ground and hear the sound of the TV channel. But when I hit the return or the menu button again the channel on the TV goes black again and all it says on the TV screen is “now… tuning” and then nothing happens for a long long long time. There is something wrong with channel 17 on Wow Basic in Evansville, IN service area. I live in Chander, IN just outside of Evansville and also get WOW for my internet and TV. My internet is working fine right now. It’s just the TV won’t tune in the higher numbered TV channels above channel 17.

WOW Reports

Really @WOW_WAY on PRIMARY election night my internet craps out at 10:30pm? Are you lIke DTE and y’all are trimming trees or something?

@WOWCare whats it like being a shitty internet provider

Unfortunately, my Internet provider (WOW!, AS12083) does NOT implement BGP safely. Check out to see if your ISP implements BGP in a safe way or if it leaves the Internet vulnerable to malicious route hijacks. via @Cloudflare @WOW_WAY

@WOW_WAY Internet is down in Rochester Hills 48309 near Walton & Livernois. Any news on a cause and ETA on service being restored? Thanks!

@WOWCare This tweet was from 10 hours ago. Do you have the history of what happened last night and how I can get a credit for my internet being disconnected?

@WOWCare had three internet outages in the past week. Some due to planned maintenance on lines during business hours. Was told by customer service I’d get a $15 credit for missing hours of work.

Wasted an entire morning trying to deal with @Verizon's poorly-functioning website. Doesn't help that our @WOWCare internet has been unreliable for the past week, either.

@WOWCare what is going on with the internet in 48071 Madison Heights, Michigan???!!! 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

@WOWCare Lost internet in Columbus, is there an outage?

If you’re a fellow @WOW_WAY customer in Columbus, there’s an internet outage, at least in my area of NE Columbus. I called them & confirmed. It’s been escalated & engineers are working on it.

Channel chief Ray Potts @wow_way internet talks about being named as a #TopGun51 award winner.

@WOWCare Slow internet speeds in Columbus. I'm getting 50 when I should be getting 500.
