Why is the wait time so long?

I just moved to a new location today. I called to get internet access before the weekend, and I ended up waiting for over an hour without an answer. The extimated wait time was less than five minutes. So, I hung up, called again, and the same thing. Why isn't anyone answering my phone calls?

There is a national Comcast outage, everyone is calling in about it unfortunately. If you do a google search you will see a ton of info about this outage. (This is not normal, hence the big news headlines about it, just so you know, haha)

I am not a Comcast Employee.
I am a Customer Expert volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.

Got the same thing and waited over two hours.  At least update your message if you are not going to answer
