Comcast's Xfinity internet service is reportedly down across the US - Chris - 11-07-2017

Comcast's internet service, Xfinity, suffered an outage earlier today across the country. DownDetector.com showed service being down around the United States, including in large cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Boston. So far, TV service and home phones weren't affected.

The outage appears to have began around 1 PM ET. Some users reported intermittent or slow services, while others were unable to access the web at all.


Comcast issued this statement after the issue was resolved: "On Monday, November 6th, our network experienced a service disruption affecting some customers with IP-based services. The disruption was caused by a configuration error. We know how important these services are to our customers. Our technicians were able to restore service within approximately 90 minutes."



Update 6:06 PM ET: Updated with Comcast's statement and to reflect that the issue has been addressed.
