Cable television and internet service in the Sarasota area was interrupted for Comcast Xfinity customers on Monday in an outage that appeared to be widespread.
An outage map of Florida showed a wide swath of affected areas from around Naples along the western half of the peninsula into north central Florida.
On its website, the company posted this message: “We’re aware that you may be experiencing a service interruption and are working to resolve the issue. … We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.”
A recorded line by Comcast Xfinity customer service referred to a network outage with no estimated time of repair.
