Comcast is down all over America because of two ‘fibre cuts’ in its network

Comcast is down for some customers all over the country, the company has confirmed.

In the late afternoon Friday, Comcast explained with a tweet that the company has identified two “unrelated” fibre cuts in the network, and said its engineers are working to restore service.

Here’s the full tweet:

Comcast first said that one of its partners had a fibre cut earlier in the day. “One of Comcast’s large backbone network partners had a fibre cut that we believe is also impacting other providers,” it said on Twitter.
