Comcast issues block World of Warcraft Users

Issues with the Comcast Cable network are blocking and disconnecting users of popular online game World of Warcraft.

It’s not clear at the time of writing what was causing the issue, with a notice on the World of Warcraft forums noting only that Blizzard was aware of the issue, and was attempting to contact “appropriate sources” for further information. There may be more details on this thread, but at 133 pages long at the time of writing it’s difficult to tell. The thread also notes that Verizon customers may also be affected.

The news comes on the same day widespread internet issues were reported across Asia and the Middle East after three major cables were severed, however despite Blizzard’s strong Asian presence it has over 200 servers (“realms”) located in the United States for local World of Warcraft users.

Comcast’s Phone Number for those wishing for direct details is 1-800-COMCAST (1-800-266-2278).

More if we get it.
