Widespread Cox internet outage knocks many Las Vegas Valley residents offline

Updated January 4, 2023 - 3:36 pm

Cox Communications customers were experiencing a wide-spread internet outage Wednesday morning in the Las Vegas Valley.

Many Las Vegas area residents took to Twitter noting their outage, which included users from most areas of the valley.

“Cox internet in Vegas crashing the week of CES,” Twitter user Joseph Gumalo tweeted. “Hate to see it.”

Southern Nevada’s largest internet supplier confirmed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal via Twitter direct message that there was an outage in the area.

Some Twitter users reported that their services were restored around 11:30 a.m., with some noting they were without internet for almost two hours.

“We experienced a temporary service outage that lasted a couple hours this morning,” Cox spokeswoman Susie Black-Manriquez said. “Services were quickly restored. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”
