Comcast/XFinity Outage Nationwide Blamed On Cut Cable

Comcast has confirmed just minutes ago that their nationwide outage of their voice, television, and internet service was caused by a cut cable. While this seems particularly incredible for a service provider that is considered to be the second largest broadcasting and cable provider in the world, the company has told its users that it is working as quickly as it can to restore service.

The fiber cable cut was at one of its backbone network partners, and other internet and telecom service providers are also affected.
