Comcast has confirmed a major outage. Not a lot of information has been released, but they have said they are aware of the problem and are working on it. Many customers have seen internet outages, phone and data services interruptions, and some a total black out from all Comcast services. We have little information at this point, but wanted to make everyone aware.
While services appear to be returning, there has been lots of chatter in the forums ranging from still having complete outages to not being able to access certain websites. The severity of the impact seems to vary greatly by location within the U.S.
As we receive more information we will keep you posted
UPDATE: Comcast tweeted late Friday afternoon “we identified 2 unrelated fiber cuts to our network backbone providers. Our engineers are restoring services to business & residential internet, tv & voice customers. Apologies to those affected”
Services have largely been restored to Comcast customers
