Rogers has yet to explain what caused the outage, simply sharing that it’s aware of the problem and is working on a solution.

The outage started earlier this morning, impacting internet and wireless services for Rogers customers. Those not on Rogers’ network have also been impacted as various financial and emergency services relying on Rogers’ network went offline.
