How can I tell if my Internet Service Provider ISP is down?

ISP Outage Ruffling Your Feathers This Morning?

Good Morning happy followers…well not for Comcast in Baltimore. It appears there have been rolling outages across our area.  This is a good first look to see if the outage you are experiencing is with your Internet Service Provider so you can self-diagnose the problem before calling “your list”.  You may also find a spirited discussion below the graph of others with the same problems.  At least this lets you know what may be going on and help you get it resolved faster.
