TAMPA BAY, Fla. - Users of Brighthouse Cable were without some services today due to a widespread system outage.
According to Brighthouse spokesperson Joe Durkin, the issues with phone, high speed internet and some video services began at around 10:40 Tuesday morning. Durkin was unsure of the total number of customers impacted when we asked.
Durkin said the effect was centered in Hillsborough County, but homes and businesses as far west as St. Petersburg and as far east as Winter Haven have also been affected. Twitter and Facebook followers also report problems in Manatee County. The outage was also reported as far north as Holiday.
