What did you do when Comcast was down in Charleston?
Comcast service went down about 1 p.m. Wednesday after a fiber optic cable was cut. Comcast first told customers it was expected to be over by 5 p.m., then 10 p.m. and then 1 a.m. As the outage went on for 8 hours, Lowcountry residents took to social media to vent.
