Online customers of Bank of America have had persistent problems connecting with the mega-bank throughout the day.
As of 2 p.m., at least some visitors to http://www.bankofamerica.com were being told “Online Banking is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience.” No specific explanation nor timetable for a fix was given.
Access to the bank’s online site has been sluggish since Monday, when a spokeswoman indicated the bank was not the victim of a cyber attack and said no customer account information had been compromised. The bank told the Wall Street Journal that slowness was due to “routine” upgrades made over the weekend.
