If you’re reading this you’re probably not a Bell customer.
That’s because Bell’s entire combined network is down.
Across the country, Bell customers are reporting outages. Issues started to occur Monday morning, around 11:00 a.m, and are peaking this afternoon.
Mobility customers in British Columbia and parts of Alberta may be experiencing a service outage due to multiple fibre cuts as a result of adverse weather conditions. We are working with our partners to restore services as quickly and safely as possible.

According to Bell, the service outage is due to multiple fibre cuts as a result of adverse weather conditions.
While the outages are across Canada, Environment Canada issued a warning for BC that high winds may cause power outages on Monday morning.
