My business has no phones and there is no one to talk to about it.

We have been down for a half hour. The wait time for customer service is over 90 minutes. Is anyone monitoring this board who can give me an answer about progress addressing the outage? Zack Holsun - MercuryPDX

I saw that post. I am a small business with high phone volume. I need to know what's happening and a goddam ETA  for repair. This long of an outage is not acceptable.

We are all businesses just like Comcast and for Comcast to simply shut down their business line for support so they don't receive more calls regarding an ETA for the rest of us to continue business as usual is very disrespectful to all the payments all of us make a month. You are HUGE everywhere, most of us strive to be HUGE in our town, how can you disconnect our way to make money with absolutely no customer service? Then why take my money every month? Give us phones for free and you won't be responsible to have a customer service team. Myself and I know MANY BUSINESS will call for you to pay for your inconsideration, so I'll rest easy Comcast will lose money TOO!!!

According to my Comcast business accout rep, there was an explosion in Colorado at their phone headquarters that has the entire country out....Even with multiple backup systems service not back up yet.  He has never seen such an outage before and had no idea when it would be back up...However, our comcast internet is working.

Same issue here, only we don't run a courier business so it's not quite as detrimental for us. Anyone able to get any confirmation of it possibly being an explosion in Colorado? I don't see any news reports, but only did a rudimentary search.

We are a cardiovascular physician's office and have been trying to talk to comcast to transfer our phones to our answering service since 5 pm est.  After the system kept disconnecting me and telling to try again later I finally was put on hold at 5:50 pm.  Still on hold and still can't transfer phone. This is unacceptable and we will be looking into changing our service!  I want an answer and someone to help me transfer our phone ASAP.

my business has no phones and comcast message is that the phone number is no longer available.  This is a friggin business with outage due to comcast.  the message indicates the business is no longer in business, that i haven't paid a bill or some other obligation not addressed by the business.  What rocket scientist at comcast decided this was the best way to communicate comcasts outage.  I am beyond furious.  guess i will need to pursue voip so comcast doesnt embarass me and my business and so i have to explain to clients what really is going on.

Take my suggestion and get Verizon.  I never add all these issues and am losing business because of Comcast.  This has been going on for months.  A supervisor gave my manager his phone number but our phones are out.  I don't allow employees to have cell phones on the job and no one answers your call anyway.
