Recent storms knocked out Comcast’s service in my neck of the woods. For one of the very few times that I can remember, Highway 72 past Elk River Bridge was closed due to these storms. Comcast’s lines to the Shoals area were cut off. Cable and internet service came to a halt and guess what? People on facebook actually blamed Comcast for the service interruption. I called about the service being out when it first happened and they said there was an outage in the area. So it wasn’t just me. Then I heard about Hwy 72 and the tornado. Useless knowledge kicked in knowing the Shoals has connections to Comcast in Huntsville so I figured it might even be a few days before service was restored. But it was just a few hours until service was restored. It seemed like days but it was closer to 12-14 hours.
The comments I saw on facebook were amazing though. Two people died because of that same tornado and people on facebook were worried about Days of Our Lives or Candy Crush.
Thank you Comcast for restoring the service back so quickly. We got our service back before 8,000 utility customers did near the storm.
