Comcast Cable is attempting to replace a fiber optic line that was cut by a utility company doing work along County Road 101 near the Village of Summerhill and Southern Trace Plaza.

Comcast officials label the damage as “significant” and indicate it could take crews awhile to repair. The cable TV, internet and phone service outage affects customers throughout a wide area of The Villages. Anticipated restoration times have been pushed back twice as crews continue to work on the installation of a new line.
