Outage Detector – a popular service that provides live outage information – also indicates that Cox Internet is indeed going through an issue in areas like Phoenix and Tucson, as can be seen in the image below:
Any official word on the subject? Thankfully, Cox’s customer service on Twitter responded to multiple reports of the issue saying they are aware of it and are working on a fix.
Apparently the outage was caused by a pole that caught fire in the Phoenix area according to company support.
I am sorry to hear that your service is impacted. It looks like you are in the Phoenix area. We are aware of the issues and are waiting for SRP to repair a pole that was damaged in a fire affecting multiple vendors. Once we are cleared to work, we will do our best to restore service as soon as possible (Source)
