Comcast customers around Denver are back to having internet service after an outage Monday night that covered a large part of the city.
The company tweeted around 8 p.m. saying they had crews working to repair and restore service after a fiber was cut.
On DownDetector.com, a massive orange-red blob covered much of the Denver metro. Comcast said the outage was construction-related.

The outage started around 5 p.m., and hours later, people are 100% over it.
It was in the fourth hour of the Great Denver Comcast WiFi Outage that we began to turn on each other.— Seth Masket (@smotus) September 19, 2017
I wonder how many Denver birth stories will start with, "well, sweetheart, Comcast had an outage and we didn't have Netflix or cable, so..."— Erin Moriarty-Siler (@EMoriartySiler) September 19, 2017

@Comcast would you like to email my professors and tell them I can't do my homework or should I do it myself— TaraGmoney٩٠٠ (@tar_a_) September 19, 2017
With Comcast being down, I fully anticipate burning through all two gigs of data on my phone tonight catching up on Hot Ones.— Sam of the BnL (@BeernLoathing) September 19, 2017
not even kim kardashian could break the internet as well as @comcast can.— Erin Moriarty-Siler (@EMoriartySiler) September 19, 2017
Apparently someone cut a fiber optic cable. Not sure why the backup link isn't working, but that's the story. *Should* be back in 5 mins...— Tyler Hicks-Wright (@tghw) September 19, 2017
We did find one person who isn't upset at the outage!
Soooo internet is still out... thinking I'm going to have a glass of wine in bed? Probs the only person in Denver who's not mad at Comcast.— Jessie 🍌 (@pearls_andspurs) September 19, 2017
