Rogers outage knocks out Canadian internet service

July 8, 2022
Beginning earlier today, Canada’s Rogers Communications experienced a near total outage impairing communications across the country.

According to Kentik aggregate NetFlow, the outage began at 8:44 UTC and has yet to be resolved as of this writing. While many of the BGP routes originated by AS812 have returned to the global routing table, traffic does not appear to be flowing in or out of this national Canadian carrier.

Read the blog post A deep dive into the Rogers outage, where we dig into the outage and debunk the notion that it was caused by the withdrawal of BGP routes.
