Customers of Internet Service Provider Sparklight (formerly Cable ONE) are without use of their service this morning.

Update: Service was restored to most customers early in the afternoon.

Facebook neighborhood groups are flooded with reports of an outage across Boise and Meridian.

The company’s customer service line has a pre-recorded message informing users that “emergency repairs or planned upgrades are happening in your area. Your TV, internet or phone service will be intermittent or offline.”
