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.

"It is now affecting our business and residential internet, video and voice customers", the company wrote on Twitter midday Friday.

Comcast is dealing with a widespread outage of some of its services.

Comcast's technical support team tweeted that the issue was caused by fiber cut that was also believed to be impacting other providers. "We apologize for the inconvenience".

According to various statements provided by Comcast through the Comcast Cares Twitter account, the company now has no timeline for when services may be restored. The company has confirmed that it's working to resolve problems. Verizon customers in the region's most populated cities have reported outages. This is why Sony has not updated its status site, and its customer-service account on social media are telling people to check with their ISPs.

If you are on Xbox Live and having troubles with the party system, that is probably due to the Comcast outage.
