Re: [House&Home] Still no power, but Comcast works!

When we were on generator power for 9 days last year, at some point I plugged in the TV and the cable box and was amused to find Comcast was up and running normally.

They may not know how to keep signal levels correct or ground a drop, but they seem to do a nice job restoring service after storms.

I have POTS and [non-AT&T] DSL here. Never lost it during Irene, the Snowpocalypse or Sandy. My corded phone always works, with or without power. I was looking at weather radar last year from the time power went out until the time I set up the generator by turning the UPS on and running my laptop on battery when I needed Internet.

Our power came back a few minutes ago. Glad to have it back!
