On Friday, Comcast customers across the U.S. reported technical issues with their service. That was the case for many Comcast internet users today, with random outages popping up all over the nation.

Comcast and Xfinity users across the country found internet slow or unusable and some even lost TV service. Earlier in June, Comcast's phone service for some US businesses went down. Other PC Gamer staff members on Comcast are unable to access, and are reporting problems with Verizon phones as well.

One of our large backbone network partners had a fiber cut that we believe is also impacting other providers.

On Twitter, Comcast has told customers they are "working to restore service". "We apologize & are working to get services restored as soon as possible".

The cause of the outage is a cut fiber cable, according to the statement Comcast put out on the issue.
