Are you tired of constantly experiencing slow or dropped internet connections? Do you want to ensure that your internet is performing at its best at all times? Monitoring your internet connection is crucial to ensure that you have a smooth and reliable online experience.
An Internet speed test alone won’t tell you what’s really going on with your connection or provider. Are the problems at your location or with your ISP? Our free software automatically gathers facts about provider problems.
Track how your Internet connection and provider are performing. Optionally receive alerts to problems such as outages and low speeds with historical facts and proof of problems. Perfect for monitoring home/business, websites, security systems, TeleHealth, anything Internet connected, and alerts.
Can anyone call out? Is the security system connecting with central? Now you’ll always know.
Why should you monitor your service?
Wide scale outages are well reported but how is your neighborhood doing? Use OutagesIO just to know about local problems, to be informed. Use it to automatically gather information about problems to get help from your provider or to compare with neighbors or to make a case for better services. Many of us work from home, use it to show your employer that you were not goofing off but suffered an Internet outage.
These are just a few reasons to use our free service to monitor this costly service. You might have your own.

The OutagesIO dashboard is your personal control panel to monitor your Internet outages.
How does OutagesIO find your Internet problems?
First, our software agent gets installed on a PC/server at your location or you use our optional dedicated hardware agent.
Once running, the software automatically finds and tracks Internet connection issues. Your OutagesIO control panel is reached using a PC/mobile and shows all disconnections and where Internet outages are happening with optional alerts.
We break it down into graphs and charts showing if the downtime is at your location, with your Internet provider, or even beyond.
An optional Extended reports upgrade adds historical, flexible notifications and other features.
End the mystery of Internet problems!
How do you know if you are experiencing an Internet issue today or if the service you’re trying to reach is down? As a gamer, do you know if steam is down or if your provider is experiencing problems? Is Facebook down? Or is Instagram down? Maybe you click to watch a video only to wonder “is YouTube down or is my ISP having an issue?”.
Maybe you are experiencing WiFi outages but how do you know for sure? How often are you asking “is there an Internet outage near me?” but cannot confirm local problems because outage sites report only large outages. Are others in your area experiencing Internet problems today? If neighbors use the service too, you’ll know when problems are neighborhood wide.
Our hardware agent lets you switch between wired and wifi connections, allowing you to monitor WiFi, LTE / 4G / 5G.
Enable the automated WiFi speed test and see how your wireless is performing.
