Comcast has suffered a widespread internet, television and phone service outage across the United States Friday which has affected thousands of customers.

The company confirmed the outage on Twitter and says there may have been a cut fiber line involved.

One of our large backbone network partners had a fiber cut that we believe is also impacting other providers. It’s currently affecting our business & residential internet, video & voice customers.  We apologize and are working to get services restored as soon as possible. -Gabbie

A Comcast spokesman told CNBC that the company was aware of the outage and was working to fix it.
