Wicomico County Businesses Managing Without Internet

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- It was a day without internet and businesses moved a little slower today, as stores and restaurants tried to manage without internet.

"It's been very slow today. Haven't had any action, because basically everything runs off the Wi-Fi. The phone system and everything. We have not been able to do business as usual," said Darrell Rathel, sales manager at Safford Ford.

Taylor Reynolds, manager of Subrunners said it was an inconvenience to do everything analog. He believes he lost sales during the outage.

Others did not seem to mind having no internet for a period of time. "It's actually nice. I just talked to my daughter...She doesn't have a phone or a tablet or TV to watch. So I told her she has to read a book, and she had a meltdown,” said Jeff Trivits.

The Comcast outage map says 1,000 to 2,500 subscribers were affected by today's outage.
