Question Is Your Metrocast back?

Curious to know who has their Metrocast service back? We got electric power restored last (Monday) night but as of Tues morning our Metrocast cable, phone and internet is still down. I'm on Meredith Neck ... would like to know who has service in their area. After talking to Metrocast customer service, it sounds like the majority of their customers are without service and they have no clue when service will be restored.
Either way ... hats off to the electric crews! They have a tough job and really work hard working through an awful lot of downed lines and blown transformers.

We live in Alton and still don't have power or cable and they can't tell us when power will be re-stored. Err.

Default Back after 36 hrs outage

I have high speed turbo and always complain the average speed is around 20. After the outage it is now around 35 mbps. Hopefully it will stay that way!

Default Metrocast back working

Just to update my original post ... my Metrocast service is now functioning out here on Meredith Neck. Came back on between 2PM & 4PM today (Tues) while I was out. Hoping everyone gets their electric and cable services back on soon.

It could be that there are only a dozen or so people with cable right now, you being one....

I'm in Gilford and still no power or metrocast. They are now telling me should be back up by Friday morning. Just received this email from eversource

Quote:
Hello,

Eversource expects power to be substantially restored to all customers impacted by Sunday night’s storm by no later than Friday morning. Many customers could have power restored sooner. The storm caused significant damage to poles, wires, and equipment, but with hundreds of crews from throughout the Northeast and Canada working around the clock, we continue to make great progress and have restored power to more than 220,000 customers since the storm began.

Please remember that if you see a downed power line, always assume it’s live and energized. Do not go near or drive over the line. And, if you are using a back-up generator, please be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Stay safe, and thank you for your patience!


Sincerely,

Your Eversource Customer Care Team
