Northeast coast of US hit with massive internet outage, from Boston to DC

Downdetector, a website that tracks reports of outages, showed widespread issues with Verizon, Google, Zoom, YouTube, Slack, Amazon Web Services and others shortly before noon on Tuesday.

On Twitter, Verizon customer support blamed the outage on a “fiber cut in Brooklyn” and said it could not provide an estimated time to restoration. It’s not clear if the fiber cut was responsible for the whole outage.

Some internet users also reported problems with Comcast’s service.

Striking in the middle of the day, the outage likely interrupted work and school for millions of people still learning and working from home due to Covid-19.
