Large outage cripples Comcast internet, TV service for customers

Do you have Comcast? There's a massive service outage across the country Comcast outage widely reported across United States
Troy Mann | 01 July, 2018, 23:54

Reports indicated that the outage mainly affected cable service, although there were reports of the loss of Internet and phone service.

A fiber cut to Comcast's large backbone networks caused a nationwide service outage for businesses and other customers.

The customer service telephone line was also out of service earlier.

While the outage occurred, the company responded on social media that service would be restored. It is now affecting our business and residential internet, video and voice customers. "We apologize for the inconvenience". The company has confirmed that it's working to resolve problems.

Comcast's verified Twitter account replied to some users complaining about a lack of service.

Comcast reported last quarter it serves 29.6 million total business and residential customers. The source of the problem, as it turns out, was a fiber cable being cut by one of Comcast's partners.

The estimated time of restoration is 4:41 p.m. Friday. That's because other traffic travels across the provider's network, because it serves as part of the backbone connecting various regions of the nation.
