Internet users across the northeast U.S. reported widespread outages Tuesday.

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

The telecom giant had 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, said its network was performing normally in the early afternoon on the East Coast.

People posting on Twitter reported having issues connecting with various online services in a geographic area stretching from Washington to Boston. That densely populated region includes key U.S. government services as well as major financial companies such as Fidelity Investments.

The outage is affecting major internet and cloud providers as well as major sites such as Google and Facebook.

One thought on “Widespread internet outages hit northeast U.S.

  1. GOOD — If the FANGs are going to block US from the internet — shut down the internet.
    Freedom of Speech is codified in the Constitution.
    ANYONE violating it is attacking America and thus is an Enemy Combatant.
    We are killing illiterate barefoot “terrorists” because “They Hate our FREEDOM”
    Zuck, Dorsey, Bezos, …… WHO HATES Our FREEDOM, WHO is attacking the CONSTITUTION
    Americans paid to create the internet; they have the RIGHT to Freedom of Speech on it.
    The internet is PUBLIC SPACE & PROPERTY and these Tech companies will respect the CONSTITUTION or THEY will be banned. SEIZE their assets and GITMO them.
    WE paid to create the internet for the FREE EXCHANGE of ideas and knowledge and BIG TECH has violated the “Service Agreement” shut down the FANGs.
    Deny the FANGs access to the PUBLIC PROPERTY of the internet
    They have been enriching themselves on OUR infrastructure for free and now they STEAL your Freedom of Speech and the information you need to make informed decisions.
    They are Conspiring to deny your CONSTITUTIONAL Rights. Seize their assets.
