Google Investigating Access Difficulties

Google services were slow or inaccessible to some users Tuesday. The cause of the glitch was not immediately known, nor were any details available on how widespread it was.

"We've received reports that a small portion of certain Internet service providers' users are having difficulty accessing Google services," Google Inc. said in a statement. "We are currently working with the ISPs to investigate."

Brief outages of leading Internet sites are not uncommon. A software glitch delayed AOL.com e-mail for millions of users in June, while the video-sharing site YouTube.com was inaccessible for hours in mid-August.

Besides running the Internet's leading search engine, Google offers e-mail, chat, news aggregation and other services.
