According to DownDetector, which tracks internet outages, Comcast customers are experiencing connectivity issues in "Mountain View, Denver, Portland, Chicago, Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Houston, Minneapolis, and Boston."
There are no firm reports yet as to the cause, although some are already speculating that it might be some sort of attack.
