Charter Spectrum business customers reported phone service outages throughout the state of Tennessee and portions of surrounding states Tuesday, local news sources reported. 

Charter reps have yet to respond to FierceCable’s inquiry on the matter. But Ask Spectrum, a Twitter account operated by the MSO, confirmed the issue in its response: “Business customers, we are aware of an issue affecting phone services are working diligently to resolve ASAP. Thank you,” the company tweeted late-morning Tuesday. 

Four hours later, the company tweeted, “Spectrum Business customers, issues affecting phone service have been resolved. Thank you for your patience.”
