Comcast Corp., the country’s second-largest pay-TV service, said today it was experiencing a nationwide interruption affecting millions of customers, Bloomberg reports.
“The Philadelphia-based company disclosed the problem Friday on Twitter. In a series of posts responding to customers, Comcast said one of its large backbone network partners had a ‘fiber cut’ that’s affecting service nationwide,” Bloomberg reports.
Comcast tweeted: “We are working to have this resolved as quickly as possible.” Bloomberg notes that Comcast officials did not elaborate beyond the tweets.
Comcast has about 22.3 million cable TV subscribers and more than 26 million high-speed Internet customers, and is the owner of NBC, USA and other TV networks along with Universal Pictures.
