Widespread internet outages hit northeast US

Internet users across the northeast US report widespread outages.

In an emailed statement 90 minutes after the outage was first reported, Verizon says it is working on the problem hurting Fios service “throughout the Northeast corridor” and that some service had already been restored.

The telecom giant reported a cut fiber in Brooklyn via Twitter, although it’s not clear if that issue was responsible for the entire outage. Verizon didn’t give any estimate in its email about when the problem would be fixed.

Comcast, another major internet service provider, says its network is performing normally on the East Coast.
