Internet Connectivity - Comcast Outage- 12:20pm MT 11/6/17|
UPDATE: Our network Engineering team has confirmed that the current performance issues that are impacting the Virsage services are directly related to a nationwide Comcast problem that is currently being worked on by Comcast. The impact extends beyond the Virsage services as it is impacted by the Internet service provided by Comcast- this means it is impacting the Virsage data center as well as your local offices with Comcast services. Services that may experience slowness include the following: Virsage Citrix desktop, website access, internet browsing, VoIP phone quality and service, remote access to servers/services. Any services accessed via the Comcast (Xfinity/Level3) network will likely be impacted and may be slow or unusable due to this Comcast outage.
This issue is wide-spread across the country for customers using Comcast/Xfinity/Level3 as their internet service provider, or using the Comcast network backbone for internet connectivity. If your company has a secondary internet service provider, we would recommend switching to that secondary internet service provider as a temporary measure while Comcast works to resolve this issue. If you would like assistance with switching to an existing secondary ISP, please open a ticket with Virsage and we would be happy to assist. We will continue to provide updates as they become available to us from Comcast.

Thank you for your patience.
