More than 50,000 Comcast Xfinity outages were reported Tuesday morning, according to the website Downdetector.
An Xfinity outage knocked out internet service to thousands in the Chicago area and across several states Tuesday morning.
The company said they had resolved a “network issue” that caused the outages, restoring service to impacted customers.
“Earlier, some customers experienced intermittent service disruptions as a result of a network issue,” the company said in a Tweet around 10:45 a.m. “We have addressed the issue and service is now restoring for impacted customers, as we continue to investigate the root cause. We apologize to those who were affected.”
People took to Twitter to post about the outages, which appeared to kick in around 7 a.m. as thousands of people prepared to start their work from home. By 8:30 a.m., many customers across the country reported their internet service had returned.
