Our mission is to provide reliable service through careful planning, control, and maintenance of our infrastructure.

We’re often asked if this list is truly representative of our facility operations compared to other providers that suffer frequent outages. We can only comment on this in that yes, our list is accurate for our operations and our facility is designed to meet or exceed the level of services we provide. We also post issues to our Twitter account @RollernetNV and here in the Newspipe, both of which can be reviewed online.

At the end of November 2009 we completed a move into our current facility in Reno, NV from Sparks, NV. Events prior to this transition are for historical purposes only and do not reflect our current facility operations.

  1. November 22, 2009: Generator Fault, 10 minutes.
  2. May 18, 2008: UPS Failure, 15 minutes.
  3. March 8, 2007: DDoS Attack
