Widespread outage hits RiverStreet internet in Beaufort County

BEAUFORT COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) -Beaufort County residents who have internet service through RiverStreet Networks have been dealing with an outage for much of the day.

RiverStreet says they are experiencing a widespread service outage in Belhaven, Bath, Pinetown, and Washington.

They say their team is working diligently to restore internet services as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.

Callers to WITN have expressed their frustration saying they have not had service all day and some say they work remotely and don’t know how they will be able to do that tomorrow if service isn’t restored.

RiverStreet says a core router issue caused the outage but they don’t have an estimated timeframe for when it will be restored, or how many people are affected.
