People across the nation experienced Internet problems Monday, according to service providers and to reports fielded by downdetector.com.
With customers taking to social media to vent their frustrations, some providers, including Comcast and RCN, released statements blaming a company called Level 3.
RCN said it had switched to an alternate backbone.
Comcast Xfinity said its customers experienced problems due to “an external network issue.”
By 3:38 p.m., Comcast announced that the problem was mostly over.
Marc Goodman, a spokesman for Comcast Cable, said the Level 3 outages were behind the problems Xfinity customers had experienced.
The company said on Twitter at 3:27 p.m. that its network had experienced a disruption, but things were back to normal.
