Phone Outage

I need help to contact Comcast about a phone outage. Our business phones have been intermittent all day (Sept. 8, 2023.) I reset the modem with Comcast 2-3 hours ago but the problem persists. I called Comcast a 2nd time for support and also tried to reach them through the internet though our business account portal. I was on hold for 1.5 hours on my mobile phone when the call dropped or was disconnected. I can't find a way to report the problem online, send an email or through the chatbot. I've asked the chatbot to have Comcast call me again but it has been another 30 minutes since I requested the 3rd call. Comcast shows no service issues on our account and on the Comcast website. All of this seems to indicate a serious problem in our area but I'm not sure Comcast even knows about it. Suggestions?

Gisselle (sp?) at Comcast confirms there is a software issue on the Comcast side that has been affecting Comcast Business inbound calls today.

I don't find "Xfinity Support" as an addressee. Would it be just "support"?

This is for a Comcast Business account. I seem to be limited in who I can address DMs to. For example, I cannot send a message to Comcast_BrianA but I seem to have other Comcast_EmployeeName addresses that are available. Is there a Comcast Business Support address I can use for direct messages?

I got another call back from Comcast but after being on hold again for several minutes with music, I thought I was being connected but there has been silence for over 5 minutes. I have tried reaching out to "Xfinity Support" in the chat icon as suggested by a Comcast employee but the messaging app will not accept "Xfinity" or "Xfinity Support" in the "To" box.

[Edited: "All Caps"] Having the same problem callers are sent directly to voice mail, or the call disconnects as we answer was on hold for 40 minutes with no answer.

Hello @user_2c428b thank you for letting us know of the issues you are running into with your calls. There was a known issue earlier today that did impact some of our business customers with being able to properly receive calls. However, this issue has now been resolved, so everything should be working for you. How long ago did someone attempt to call you and it either went to voicemail or dropped after you answered? Is this happening to everyone that calls you, or only certain numbers?

I no longer work for Comcast.

I have been having similar issues this week.  Dropped calls, one ring, then straight to voicemail.  The Soft Reception console will show the disconnected calls twice when the caller calls back.  I don't want to open a ticket because they are seldom responded to, but the problems usually resolve themselves.

Getting worse today.

What gives?
