Comcast’s Xfinity enduring across the nation blackout

Comcast’s Xfinity internet service appears to be down in regions over the US, as per Down Detector, tweets from various clients and one of Engadget’s editors.

Service is either totally dead or just working somewhat in major parts of the northwest, California, New York state, Illinois, Michigan, Texas and Florida, as per Down Detector.

The blackout began around 1:40 AM eastern time, as indicated by a few tweets. Comcast has not reported anything yet, and service technicians have just offered vague answers to clients who called about the issue.

Comcast’s own map just shows local blackouts, yet Down Detector is demonstrating this as a noteworthy, across the nation issue.

The service provider (an opponent to Verizon, Engadget’s parent organization) encountered a fundamentally the same as blackout last June and eventually chalked it up to cut fiber cables.
