Verizon FiOS service is down in large chunks of the Northeast


Verizon FiOS customers in the Northeast and central United States are reporting issues with their internet service on social media. 

A map from the website shows much of the northeastern US is without Verizon FiOS internet service.

The outages started occurring as far back as around 7 a.m. EST, as shown by a FiOS customer from Philadelphia.

Anyone in Philly having Fios issues? #verizonoutage

Information on Verizon support sites say that the company is “working hard to restore service to our customers affected by the recent storms,” but doesn’t provide a date for the outage or storms the page is referring to. There were no recent major storms in the New York City area. 

Verizon confirmed that its FiOS internet service is experiencing issues, and there isn’t an estimated time for a fix.
