MIT Cable Outage Affects Eight West Campus Buildings

Eight buildings were without MIT Cable service from June 23–26. The outage was likely created by power surges related to electrical work that was being done in Next House (W71), according to the Information Services and Technology Web site 3DOWN.

The effected dormitories and buildings were MacGregor House (W61), New House (W70), Next House (W71), Westgate (W84), Tang Hall (W85), W89, W91, and W92.

Service was restored Thursday, June 26, according to MIT Cable Team Leader Randy Winchester.
