Thousands of Comcast customers in Arlington are without internet, TV and phone service this afternoon.
A major Comcast outage is currently affecting large swaths of Arlington, from the northernmost part of the county down. Comcast’s outage map shows reported issues throughout residential North Arlington and much of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor. (The map only shows areas near a given subscriber and ARLnow was unable to view areas south of the R-B corridor.)
Comcast is currently estimating restoration of service around 6-6:30 p.m.
The outage started just before 1 p.m., right around when a truck took down utility lines along Route 50. It’s unclear if that incident and the outage are related.
Among those affected by the outage are small businesses like Pupatella Pizza in Bluemont, which said via social media that its internet ordering and phone lines were down.
Our internet is down here in Bluemont so that means our phones and internet orders are not going through. @comcast a little help please
