Internet outage at my home in Katy, Texas

I don’t have internet at home, it was working a few hours ago. I have checked for outage in my area and the xfinity assistant mentioned that there are no outages. However, nothing has changed at my end. I have tightened the coax cable and restarted my modem a couple of times.

Concern moved here to the Customer Service help section for greater exposure to Comcast corporate employees (The Digital Care Team) for assistance.

Glad to hear you are safe while in the midst of Hurricane Beryl user_gr2lse Please know that getting everyone back connected is always paramount. The safety of our crews is something that is always number one, we are not able to dispatch any teams until there has been an all clear to begin repairs. Unfortunately, as of now, we do not have an update for you. Hurricanes are an extremely tough situation to recover from, to be fully transparent, I do not expect to see much movement on repairs for another 48 hours based on the scope of reported damage. I included a link below to our status center, you can also use the Xfinity app to set up text alerts for when everything will be ready. You can find and connect to Xfinity WiFi hotspots to help provide connection during this time. Just sign in to any xfinitywifi network using your username and password.

I am in Katy as well and had service after the hurricane passed, but at about noon yesterday, we went down and never came back up.  When at a friend's house with wifi, I looked on here and over the course of 3 hours saw there was an issue, then there wasn't, then there was, got a text that service was restored but it wasn't, and now there's still an issue.  It's all over the place so I wouldn't trust it.
