Although OTS network services are designed to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at times it is necessary to perform maintenance on network components in order to maintain quality service. OTS strives to perform this maintenance with the least impact on its customers as outlined in the network maintenance schedule. If you should experience trouble with your network services outside of these scheduled maintenance windows, please contact our Trouble Reporting number at 225.219.6900 and review the technical support guidance.
