There is a massive Optimum outage in the New York area, affecting internet and phone service of many customers in Brooklyn.

Optimum reported that the service disruptions were caused after a third-party company conducting work damaged a main cable in the area.

Crews have been working all day to fix the outage, and by late Thursday afternoon, some service had been restored.

The outage has affected many upstate camps that have their main servers in Brooklyn.
