Comcast is down for some customers all over the country, the company has confirmed.

In the late afternoon Friday, Comcast explained with a tweet that the company has identified two “unrelated” fiber cuts in the network, and said its engineers are working to restore service.

Here’s the full tweet:

Comcast first said that one of its partners had a fiber cut earlier in the day. “One of Comcast’s large backbone network partners had a fiber cut that we believe is also impacting other providers,” it said on Twitter.

“It is currently affecting our business and residential internet, video and voice customers. We apologize & are working to get services restored as soon as possible.”

This reporter’s internet is partially affected, with some websites failing to load but others functioning normally.
