34748 no cable since September 10 . I was told today at 10 am . Guess what ? NO CABLE
It will be back in two hours, 7 to 9 pm, Saturday night, Monday 18th,and now 10 am Tuesday.
Next, an email to the Florida AG .
Just wanted you to know that our cable wire attached to the telephone pole is swinging loosely and eventually will cause us to lose cable service. Please add us to your list of repairs. Thank you
<edited to remove all personal information>
I have a cable line down on the ground. It does not appear to be cut or damaged just detached from the pole. How do I get a work order in for repair? There was a comcast worker across the street and he said he could not place a repair order for me.....
I have to call it in.
Are customers being credited for outages during Hurricane Irma? I had power to my devices, but no cable or internet for 5 days.
Based on my experience with Hermine, you shouldn't have any problem getting credit for time out. You'll have to call and ask for it, though; it's not automatic.
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.
I'd like to know what's going on as well. Zip 33440. Been a week and I can't even talk to a rep, just uninformative machines.
I would like to know the status of the restoration in my area. TV, internet and phone are out. The zip code is 32776. Sorrento Florida. I have already been lied to twice about a restoration time by your offshore agents. The 3rd person said they don't have an eta for restoration. That is not a satisfactory answer. Do not tell me to go to the My Account app. It says it is out. It does not give a status or eta for a fix. To be kept informed is not too much to ask! I WANT THE STATUS AND ETA FOR RESTORATION!
It may be that Comcast has no set ETA for restoration, especially if there was extensive infrastructure damage, which apparently there has been in many areas of the state. I'm sure they're working as hard and fast as they can to restore services throughout FL. I know it's frustrating for you and for the work crews out doing their best to return things back to normal.
Will i be billed for non service due to hericane outage?
Based on my experience with Hermine, you shouldn't have any problem getting credit for time out. You'll have to call and ask for it, though; it's not automatic.
The line outside my home fell during Irma. Did try calling in, said we would have someone on Monday, so far a no show as of today. The pictures show it got loose from my home and just needs to be reattached to the side of home. we still got service, surprisingly. any, help you can send is appreciated.
I have been trying to have service restored for over a week. I have complained to Comcast, who absolutely does not care, and I even sent an email to the EVP, who also absolutely does not care. Then I sent an email to comcast cares. They don't exist any longer, and they absolutely DO NOT care. This is my last attempt at resolution. If I do not get service restored ASAP, I will file complaints with the FCC, LFA, FTC,and anywhere else I can file a complaint. I have had it with Comcast and I will do everything I can if my issue isn't resolved ASAP. Instead of typing out another email, I will cut and paste the email I sent to the EVP, who apparently cares about customers as much as any customer service rep there does. No response at all. Very nice but I have to admit, I expected nothing and got just that.
I included my personal and account information in the email to expedite my issue but I of course will not post that here. As I said, I have received no response to this email. I will attempt to attach a picture of the cut cable that I can see from my bedroom window. As I said, electricity to the area was restored last Friday so there is no issue with waiting for the power company to restore service.
We apologize for any inconvenience the loss of service has caused. We are still recommending if you have been impacted by Hurricane Irma and would like to request suspension of service, a credit, report a down line, need equipment replaced, or have any other questions, please complete this form.
I get it, there was a big storm, and with such a storm, there will be physical damages. My issue lies with the blatantly false statements I have received from both the Comcast "chat" service and with those I have spoken with over the phone. I was first given a time on Monday, service still out, then a random time on Tuesday, same result. Finally, upon calling to cancel my service, I was assured, very clearly, that the latest it would be is 9/21 at 7PM. To my suprise (not suprised at all) the Comcast site states the outage "should" be resolved on 9/24.
As for the subject of this post - at least in my situation, this outage is not due to any physical damage. I reside in a condominium, and my neighbor (10 feet away) has had service since 9/14. The only person in the building with Comcast service. Reason? Comcast Business subscriber. There is no physical reason as to why I do not have service, it's just that I am a lower class of customer. Simple as that. Had I been told from the beginning that perhaps the outage is due to a reduced capability of the network, I would have accepted it. Instead I was clearly misled multiple times.
Prior to calling to cancel, I had scheduled to get set up with Centurylink on Friday. Sure, I'll get a hit on the speeds available, but I'll have service. When I was told that service would be restored by 9/21, I believed it, but still kept my appointment with Centurylink on Friday. I have had Comcast at different residences for over 20 years, and I have accepted that their support is tough to deal with, but a line was seriously crossed. I sure hope service is restored by 9/21, but I will not hold my breath.
Flame baiting post removed
Zip 32726. Lost full cable Internet connection (no downstream sync) the night of the storm along with power. Regained power on 9/13 evening and regained cable modem sync mid-day 9/14. However, it is only barely connected, as the speed is less than 5mps down / 13mps up (I have "Blast!® Internet") and my Status page shows Outage in my area and Not Connected for the modem. This low quality connection is greatly effecting my ability to perform my job (home office, remoting into work servers and using PolyCom VOIP phone) as the connection is continually desyncing and dropping packets. I also can't fully use the connection for after work activities and entertainment, as the quality prevent anything other than simple web browsing. This is still the case as of 9/17 morning. While I understand that Comcast crews can't service the lines until power crews have finished working on the same poles, I think Comcast has failed in proactively providing better and more information on the status of the repairs and rebuilds.
Update and question:
As of today, the issue with the connection quality has not changed, I barely have a connection.
However, the Status on My Account shows "All Clear - No Outages Reported"....
Obviously, there are still issues.
Do I need to call in to notify Comcast/Xfinity that there is still an "outage"?

Thank you for that information, I also received your private message with your account information as well. I show that we are still doing work in your area and there is no estimated time on when the problem will be taken care of due to the damage done by hurricane Irma. We do have hot spots open across the state for your personal use if you need to get connected to a Wi-Fi source, we are working as hard as we can and have called upon other service tech from surrounding states to assist in getting your services restored. Thank you for your patience with us, have a good day.
I can use the nearest hotspot, but my own modem won't even come online. Is any work still being done in Clewiston FL? 33440. It says theres no longer an outage but my service is still not functional.
Hello beheenMT, I show that services have been restored in your area. Are you still having issues with your internet and TV?
I have nearly this exact same problem as DaFoxGreyTail in 32221. My internet connection techinically works but it is so slow and unreliable that it is next to useless (Often < 1.0Mbps both up and down). This is inspite of No outages reported, also.
I did not have internet during Hurricane Irma from Sunday, September 10th until Friday, September 15th. I respectfully request a credit to my account reflecting loss of service.

mrichardson_813 -- I reviewed your account in regards to the information you were given. The information provided was not meant to be false or misleading. The information given is what was available at the time and what was thought to be the restoration time for your service. Keep in mind that these are estimates and are subject to change if it is found that restoration will take longer due to more work needing to be done. We encourage you to visit My Account, XFINITY My Account App, or check the Status Center to receive updated information about service restoration in your area.
Hi supanima2 -- I can have that credit applied to your account as well. Please send me a PM with your full name, address, phone number on account and account number for verification purposes and I'll have that applied.
Again, there is service in my area, which is clear being that the unit directly next to mine has had service for 8 days (the difference being he is a comcast business customer.) I just hope something is done within 22 hours (prior to my appointment to be setup with centurylink), otherwise this lifetime comcast customer is jumping ship to a company who is at least forthright and honest about the status of their service, even if their internet speeds are 25% that of comcast's.
We currently have measures in place for our customers who have been affected by the hurricanes. I'd be more than happy to discuss your options and how we can assist you guys during this time.
Please send me a private message verifying the first and last name of the account holder, phone number, and the street address or the full account number associated with your services. To send a private message click on my name "ComcastChe", then click private message me.
Hi Cowgirlspecial1, you can call in to have the cable raised or I can assist you here. I would need to first verify your account, if you need assistance scheduling a tech to come out please send me your full name, street address, and account number by clicking on my name (ComcastAmir) and then click "private message me".
Yes, we do have certain measures in place to help our customers who were affected by the Hurricanes. I can assist you, just send me a private message verifying the first and last name of the account holder, phone number, and the street address or the full account number associated with your services.

Sarasota, West of the Trail: Our electric service was down from Sunday the 10th through Saturday the 16th. Comcast service did not when electric was restored. I have now received four (4) separate dates and times for its restoration. Monday the 18th, Thursday the 21st, Today - which has come and gone - and now Sunday the 24th. The dates Comcast is supplying are meaningless and I believe are designed to deflect heat from customers who are starting to realize that Comcast - unlike FPL - was completely unprepared for Irma.
FPL mobilized an army of restoration workers from all over the country. Those that worked in my neighborhood, at all hours, to fix downed lines and restore power, were from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. What has Comcast done? Apparantly nothing comparable. Hapless Customer Service agents can do nothing but repeat inaccurate information that I can read by logging into my account online. I would rather they supply no dates rather than continue with this game of setting dates that have no basis in reality. Imagine what things would have been like if Irma had been as bad as predicted. Power restoration would have taken longer and Comcast would have had additional valuable time to waffle and do nothing. Meanwhile, Frontier service is working great for my neighbors, and came back up as soon as electric was restored. As much as I loathe the idea of having to engage Frontier's notoriously bad customer service, I may ultimately be driven into their arms. I've been a Comcast customer for almost 10 years, spending as much as $200/month, and their recent lack of professionalism - including the ordeal of getting correct service and billing at our new residence when we moved here in May - has been extremely discouraging. So that's what they really think of us...
I called Xfinity because my phone said my outage was done and services were connected, but when I got home my cable and interent were still not working. THe gentleman who picked up the phone was very nice and tried his best to get me working, but it turned out that I was still under an outage. I did not get mad at him because I know its not his fault, but basically that means the app is useless when it comes to updating my status. MY app first said I was connected on Monday, and since then my app randomly shows connected then "outage" then connected, but even if it says connected, I am still under an outage despite what the app says. So I basically have no way of knowing when my services are restored or will be restored. THe guy helping me was honest and said we do not know when your services are going to be restored. He said he would call me back when services are restored, but still, its been 14 days now basically with no services. I have not seen a comcast truck anywhere in my travels since the outage, and have no idea what the problem is. It is getting frustrating. The xfintiy hotspot is spotty in my house and only gets good signal in 1 room. FPL did a great job with restoring power, but either xfinities equipment is the worst, or they do not have enough qualified techs to repair the damage from IRMA. But if that is the case, let us know please...
Hi Missnerra74 -- The recent hurricane caused extensive damage in your area. We have been working around the clock to have service restored in all areas. Please understand that some areas received far more damage than others and have taken longer to get repaired. We encourage you to visit My Account, XFINITY My Account App, or check the Status Center to receive updated information about service restoration in your area. Please keep in mind that restoration times are estimates and can change if further damage is found or if there are delays with repairs. Please send me a PM once your service is fully restored and I will have credit applied. That same request can also be done here: http://www.xfinity.com/florida.
