    Time Warner email still down across U.S.
    Outages are still plaguing around one million Time Warner Cable email customers nearly a week after problems first surfaced.

    Time Warner Cable spokesman Mike Pedelty says the company first noticed dropouts with its Roadrunner email service last Wednesday. 

    Pedelty says, “This is just one of those things that it’s a plaguing issue, and the different fixes that we’ve put in place were temporary fixes that didn’t take care of the issue permanently, and that’s what we’re working on doing at this time.” 

    Pedelty says around 10% of Time Warner’s roadrunner email accounts are experiencing the dropouts.

    The company could not say when the problem would be fixed.

    The Williams Companies is purchasing Access Midstream, both Oklahoma-based companies involved in Ohio’s billion-dollar fracking infrastructure.

    Williams also owns cryogenic and fractionator plants in Kensington and Scio in Columbiana and Harrison counties.
