Cox Outage Information 

Is Cox down right now?

Dealing with Internet, TV and phone outages can be frustrating, but these simple steps can help get your services back in action. First, let’s check if your service is being interrupted by a network outage—an outage that affects your area, not just your house. To check this status, log in to My Account or open the Cox app.

What to do if there’s a network outage

In this case, Cox is aware of the outage and is working hard to restore your service, so don’t worry about trying to contact us. You’ll see an alert like this if you’re in an outage:

Here are some helpful tips while the outage is being resolved:


Do not reset or reboot your equipment—this may cause additional problems.


Sign up to receive a text notification once the outage is resolved. Simply submit your mobile number in the My Account alert or the Cox app.


If you have Cox Homelife, your security system will still function on a cellular backup until Internet connection is restored.


Need to stay connected? Enjoy free access to 3M+ Cox Hotspots nationwide with Cox Internet Preferred or higher.

What to do if there’s not a network outage

If you don’t see an outage alert in My Account or the Cox App, your service disruption may not be caused by a network outage.


Double check that your monthly bill payments are up to date – late payments could cause a service interruption


Secure the cables and cords connected between your equipment, devices and walls


Test that outlets are working and a fuse hasn’t blown


Make sure your TV is on the right input & your cordless phone batteries are charged
