Time Warner Cable experienced a massive Internet outage across most of its service markets on Monday morning, the company has confirmed.

Time Warner Internet subscribers from New York and Los Angeles to Dallas and Kansas City, Mo., were unable to connect to the Internet for less than a minute this morning.

"We are up and running, and still investigating the cause and scope of the outage," said Jeff Simmermon, director of digital communication at Time Warner Cable via a tweet to TechNewsDaily.

For those still experiencing outage issues, the company suggested "rebooting your modem and then your router." [Read: Social Media Statistics: Mind-Boggling Facts About the Medium]
