It's been about 3 weeks with no Comcast internet in Key West - some people have it, some don't. Comcast is the last to restore here.. all other companies have been up over a week. My account status was red (for Internet) yesterday and is green today but it's not working for me.

I apologize for all the delays but due to unforeseen circumstances, your area is still experiencing interruptions to XFINITY Services.

If you (and anyone else in the forum) are requesting additional details on this issue please PM me your account information (Address, Phone Number, Acct Number, etc.) so I can monitor your services to update you with any information I receive. Again I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.

tree.jpgThe house where I am having internet issues is my parent's house in Florida. I do not live there but the account/address is under my name. They keep telling me that the internet is still out and they believe it has something to do with some unplugged internet cable from when hurricane Irma passed by. I tried calling xfinity services to have a tech check it but the person on the phone said they have to troubleshoot to see where the problem lies which entails me being physically there to look at the modem, trouble is I'm not physically there and I will not be able to visit for a very long time. I tried the chatting feature on the website but it simply stays stuck on "loading" no matter if I use one browser or another. I don't know what to do and my parents keeping calling me to get it fixed as soon as possible. What can I do?

We livi in a residential area in Naples on Highlands drive and have not had any service since the 10th of September.  Have the comcast account app and last Sunday was the expected time to be repaired. Nothing happened and Comcast moved it till today the 28th. Just checked my app and now its October 2nd.  I can understand a few days but this is going on 3 weeks.  I did notice that the way the power company got things working was to have actual trucks out working on the problems. So far I have yet to see a comcast truck anywhere.

Afternoon All

Noticed a downed cable line on a property inspection of a vacant home I was visiting to check up on after Hurrican Irma repairs.  Looks like the the line is down, doesn't appear to be tangled up.  How should I go about addressing this.  I tried using the online chat, but the reps from india keep trying to send a service call to my home address.

 

764 94TH N AVE , NAPLES, FL 34108  Is the address of the home with the downed wire.  Lefthand side.

 

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

I have been getting constant 1% packet loss since the Hurricane hit Florida.  It did no damage to my house or anything like that.  The internet has been back up for over 2 weeks now at my house and I still am experiencing problems.  I have had two techs come out only to confirm what I already knew that there is no problem in my house.  I ping my modem directly from my PC and there is no loss.  I have strong signal strength etc but continuously I get disconnected from VOIP calls, or games when I'm trying to play, or my VPN for work.  I'm being told that there is no problem on Comcast's end over and over again.  I'm at my wits end trying to call in and getting no help.  At this point I don't know if I need to formally file a complaint with the FCC or what.  I'm a patient person, if they told me hey there is a problem and we are working on it I would have no problem.  But their failure to even acknowledge my issue after multiple calls and tech visits is just unreal.  Any advice?

Hi Ybmom, 

We currently have multiple lines and nodes down in your area.

 

We're aware of the service interruption in your area and I do apologize for the inconvenience. While we cannot give you an estimated time when your service will be back on, please be assured that we are working to restore service as quickly and safely as possible. We appreciate your patience as we know how important the services in your home are to you.

 

The most effective way for you to get updates for active service events in your area and information about your Comcast service is to visit Xfinity.com/MyAccount or use the XFINITY My Account app on your secure, Internet-enabled mobile device. Within My Account, you can opt-in for a free one-time text alert to receive a text message once service in your area has been restored.

OPEN LETTER TO COMCAST: @COMCAST


Since Hurricane Irma struck the Florida Keys on September 10th, I have had my sewer, water, electricity, cell pbone service, and landline restored in a timely manner. In all cases, I was kept informed of progress in restoration of service.
Now, 19 days after the storm I still do not have my Comcast Internet nor TV, .... AND I HAVE RECEIVED NO COMMUNICATION about why this is so!!!


You manage to send me a note about suspending my service (which meant while I was away from the area I was denied access to Xfinity WiFi! and the basic TV service for which I am being billed only works on one of my three adapters) and a folksy newsletter about how I can buy more of your services.

 

NOT ONE MESSAGE TO TELL ME WHY IT IS TAKING SO LONG!


NOT ONE COMCAST VEHICLE WORKING IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD!


The only information I get is if I seek it out -- on your app you tell me service will be restored at 9:25am on Wednesday, October 4. No stated reason for why it is taking so long. No update on that prediction for days. I will hold you to that date and time .... not one minute longer!


And when franchise time comes up again ... maybe it is time for SPECTRUM to become our provider of record here in Key West.

I have had a complete outage of Comcast services since 9/10. At first, the MyAccount app (and the associated web page) was providing “Expected Service Return” time/date estimates, which were simply advanced every time that time was reached. First by one day, then by three days. Now, the estimated time of repair has been simply not provided, but states:"An XFINITY Services outage has been reported in your area. We're working hard to get your service up and running." I suppose they have gone from “We got it wrong” to “We don’t have a clue”.

 

I have filled out the “Irma form”, but no response from that either.

 

Other service in the area (Florida Power and Light, Centurylink) hit their estimated repair date by hours. And that was over two weeks ago. Centurylink was up within minutes of the power retuning, and in fact had service trucks in the area simultaneous with the power utility’s service trucks.  Our Centurylink landline is working, and all of our neighbors Centurylink IP and VOIP services have been restored. The only Comcast truck we have seen belongs to a service supervisor that lives in the area. His truck is in his driveway when I leave for work, and is there (though moved) before I return home. (Oh, yes, he and a few adjacent neighbors have their service. ) So much for a sense of urgency. The other utilities were working very long hours in this area.

 

 Once again, Comcast has proven to be completely incompetent with providing services, and incompetent with customer service.

 

 Is there anyone that has a clue with this company?

Hi, Just got my bill, and despite a 10 day disruption in service, we were billed our full monthly amount. How is that fair?

Any relief for hurricane survivors who went without cable and internet service? Please consider this request and respond via email.

I just hung up from an informative phone conversation with my Monroe County, FL County Commissioner whom I called to complain about comcast's inadequate response post-Irma. I did not know that there is not a franchise agreement between comcast and the county, thus the county has no influence over comcast service nor comcast customer service. It's no wonder that water and electricity, two utilities that have to answer to the public, expended great resources to restore their services. comcast did not. It just doesn't care.

DEAR COMCAST CORPORATE.  In case you were not aware of a problem relating to the inaccurate Status Notifications your website provides:

Today is 9/29. We have had no Comcast services since 9/10 (Hurricane Irma) despite power being up since 9/10 and our land line (not Comcast) phone working since 9/14. However, you are showing our status as green, with the following verbiage:

"Everything looks good on our end.

We don’t see any outages at the moment."

This is not true since our box outside is dead (confirmed by two different techs who came to our home). We have learned that we need a construction crew to repair a broken feeder off a pole somewhere, not just a normal maintenance team.  It is difficult to get any updates from Comcast because the Comcast telephone and live chat reps are completely clueless that we even have a problem despite several "JB-" numbers associated with our account. While Comcast has provided some credit, we really would like our services back, or, at a minimum, at least an idea of when services will be restored. Is it a matter of days, weeks, months? The fact that the status shows that nothing is wrong is most troubling. It is as if nobody is going to bother to fix anything because they might think the matter has already been resolved, but it has not!!!  I would like to recommend that you please get a team of programmers to work so that your status software can reflect your customers' actual situations.  Hopefully it might speed up the resolution of our problems.  I hope so.  Can someone please let us know that Comcast is aware of our situation and is indeed working on it?

Unfortunately this is not true for us. The MyAccount app on my phone and the status link on the website both show that our TV and Internet services are connected, but they have been down 9/10. Something is very wrong.

Interesting conversation with a local Comcast service tech (off duty).
1. No overtime is being authorized. Repairs must be done normal shift durations.
2. Fl. Keys: no extra support will be provided . All repairs to be accomplished by tech's that live in the area, due to no housing available in the area, and they do not want to pay for the fuel to stage from Florida city.

This is verbatim from a Comcast service employee. Believe what you will.

Phone Agent today had NO update for service return. Promised to return call, but didn't.
How can we get updates that anyone believes?

Why no recent update, even here, from Comcast?

Clueless. In Fort Myers we reported a line down on our block on sept. 22. We have been given multiple restoration dates and twice this week including this morning the app reported that our system has been restored. The line is still down. A work ticket was finally opened on the 28th. I have seen only one Xfinity van during the past week. They brought in no extra help unlike fpl. There is no overtime for field service personnel. This is textbook incompendance. Sick of talking to offshore reps who have clue. This morning the one I called insisted in doung a troubleshooting exercise after being informed that a line is down to our block. So to all the comcast employees on this blog stop telling us everything is being done to fully restore service. Hey just check my app it says my service is back.

Comcast has LITERALLY the worst customer service, out of any major company that I know of. Heck, even Taco Bell has better customer service....

 

I would give Comcast a D- on their work during Hurricane Irma in Florida last month.

They were quick to offer additonal wifi spots before the storm (didn't work at all btw)

They never gave us a e-mail, call, etc "Hey, this is when your service will be back" 

Customer service is based in the Phillipines to save money, (you can't understand them, and they have no clue about tech support, my 12 year old nephew knows more)

Terrible latency when you do get it back, then it goes in and out. 

Comast = Monopoly

 

/headache ... I have so much more feedback but I'm afriad my fingers hurt.

 

But yeah Comcast- I give you a D- , heck maybe even a F+ on the restoration of services. Other ISP's will be on my radar, and maybe a new cable provider.

And it's unfortunate that comcast's actions lead me to feel that way. You know, all those old adages - the proof is in the pudding, actions speak louder than words, etc. While I am sure that the comcast employees on the ground are working diligently, there is an insufficent number. You can read multiple posts on these boards from other customers who have spoken to comcast techs in the Keys and have been told that overtime has not been authorized and that extra crews were not made available. And why does comcast do this? My opinion is that dollars are more important than customer service or customer satisfaction, in other words, comcast don't give a da*n. Unfortunately, I'm just ranting and comcast front-line people are flak catchers. Brian Roberts is only looking at the bottom line.

I understand I am eligible for a credit on my account due to hurricane Irma?  I was without comcast services 10 days.

I already filled out the Irma Form. I'm sure  that someone who cares very little will do very little and will send very little response in turn.

 

We haven't had service since the 10th. 20 days without service and we're edging up on next month's bill. I've called again and again and again, and I've had not just one but two service appointments cancelled without notice. The line is up. For one reason or another after the last linemen came, they left the cable at the service drop disconnected, and every time I call, they say there's going to be an actual technician (and not just a guy with a van full of cable boxes) coming to fix that, and every time they cancel without any notice. This is absurd. My mother had to cancel work twice for people who never came, and both my parents need internet for work, and I for my college. This is not just a monthly bill for no service, it is actively costing us money.

We are currently in the process of seeking another service provider such as nearby competitors, because clearly Comcast does not care enough about our business to actually provide the service it is expecting us to pay through the nose for. For less than the price of our current service, Atlantic is offering gigabit cable service, more than ten times the throughput we are not receiving. Almost 130 dollars a month for 100MBPS, but Atlantic's offering an introductory rate of 90 with the regular being 120, still cheaper!

 

What a joke.

Absolutely horrible internet service in Jacksonville, FL (32221) since Hurricane Irma (9/10).  Repeated contacts with customer service, but no resolution.

We have had power since a few days after the storm. The line to our house is hanging lower than normal, but not loose. I have called, and called, and called, but I am fed nothing but lies! Service appointments get cancelled without notice, promised a lineman would be here for two weeks now, but nothing! Saw a line being run a few houses down from us last week and people around this area have service, so when will we be back up and running? Went to the service center here locally and overheard a Comcast employee tell someone that Comcast has suspended all repairs and if anyone want service to work, they need to cancel their current service and wait a few days, then call for new service installation. Otherwise, count on no service at all for maybe months. So do we really need to cancel our current service and then call for new service and get stuck in a two year contract? I'm thinking that this needs to be reported to our State representatives...maybe not price gouging, but I am sure Pam Bondi would take an interest in what appears to be nefarious business practices.

Can someone please let us know that Comcast is aware of our situation and is indeed working on it?


RESOLVED finally, just one day shy of three weeks after Hurricane Irma.
On Saturday 9/30 I received a call from Comcast, I think in response to the 2nd Florida Form I completed asking for someone to contact me. The rep could not see we had a problem until she dug deeper and then saw the job orders associated with our account. She transferred us to the tech team who escalated it and indicated that someone would call us sometime after 3:32PM to set up an appointment, and finally our status showed multiple outages reported and that our cable tv and internet were down. At 4:31pm, our Xfinity internet and cable tv were RESTORED finally, thanks to the crew with two bucket trucks working on the line about 5 or 6 houses away. Within the next hour, another tech came to our door and added a filter to the cable coming into our house and put it in a grey covered box that we did not have before.

Why is so hard to get our service back? I have been told my different answers to this question. I have been told Southwest Florida was effected by Hurricane Harvey, I been told that a service appointment could not be set up to put up our downed line until the outage was solved, I was told never use the on-line chat always call because the online chat will not give information to service about a downed line and the outage tracker does not mean you will get service just there is an outage. I have worked harder to get service and information about service over the last three and a half weeks than any other recovery from Hurricane Irma. By the way still no service at our home since 9/09/17
