Philadelphia Eagles fans expressed outrage Sunday afternoon as apparent Comcast Xfinity cable and internet outages hit their home city on Super Bowl Sunday.
“Holy crap. Half of Philadelphia is currently experiencing a cable and Internet outage and Comcast/Xfinity are now saying it may not be back up until 6pm #SuperBowl,” tweeted one Philadelphia-area fan with a screenshot of the Xfinity’s outage map.
Apparently hitting Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood worst – “If @Xfinity isn’t back up in Fishtown by 4pm, this place will absolutely erupt,” tweeted another local – the widely reported internet outage comes just hours before the Philadelphia Eagles are set to play the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, will host the big game, which is scheduled for kickoff at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
Per screengrabs and Twitter responses from Xfinity’s verified support channela resolution to the Philadelphia outages is anticipated to come by 6 pm Eastern, a push back from a fix that was initially estimated for 2 pm Eastern.
Representatives for Comcast Xfinity did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
