Business and residential Comcast customers are in the midst of another outage, which could take up to 24 hours to solve.

"One of Comcast’s large backbone network partners had a fiber cut that we believe is also impacting other providers. It is currently affecting our business and residential internet, video and voice customers. We apologize & are working to get services restored as soon as possible," the company sent in a Twitter message.

A backbone network is a type of infrastructure that helps connect different computer networks.

Police in Manchester advised residents to call a different number for non-emergencies because of the outage.

On the website DownDetector.com, a customer reported that he could not log into his account to check on the outage status. Another customer in Long Branch reported having no cable service while a customer in Flemington reported no internet.

Comcast Business customers experienced a massive outage on June 6 that lasted several hours. A similar outage happened the next day but service was quickly restored.

A Comcast representative has not yet returned a message seeking comment.
