The problem initially looked like an internet-wide outage not exclusively related to Comcast, as users initially reported services like Netflix, Facebook, and YouTube were all down. The source of the problem, as it turns out, was a fiber cable being cut by one of Comcast's partners. The website Down Detector has logged thousands of reports regarding the issue, with 65% reporting internet problems and 17% reporting a "total blackout". Comcast said in the statement it believes other providers were also affected. Earlier in June, Comcast's phone service for some US businesses went down. We apologize and are working to get services restored as soon as possible.
