Did you have trouble with internet service last week?
If you are a Cablevision Optimum Online subscriber, you weren't alone on Tuesday.
The internet service provider was the victim of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, which began Tuesday at 6 p.m. and continued up until a little past midnight, Long Island Business News reports.
Did the DDoS attack inconvenience you? Should Cablevision recompensate subscribers for the lack of service?
Take it one step further: When the LIRR fails to send your train on time, why shouldn't your ticket be discounted?
When LIPA has a power outage, why aren't they penalized and your bills reflect a decrease?
When we don't pay; they send bill collectors; when they don't deliver their services, they get away with it.
