Some users also complain about persistent and recurrent issues:

I live in Huntington Park CA and it’s been down since Saturday afternoon, it comes back like around 10pm, sometimes it’s slow, but then goes out again around 10am and doesn’t come back till late at night, 5 days of this now

Other users also called technical teams for repairs:
