Vandalism Creates Widespread Telecom Outage in Lake Houston Area

I received a call this morning from Congressman Dan Crenshaw’s office asking for help to publicize a widespread telecom outage in the Lake Houston Area. It affects Atascocita, Humble, Kingwood, and Porter. Comcast appears to be the target of the vandalism. But some AT&T customers also report being affected.

Comcast has set up a webpage that shows pictures of the vandalism. It also informs customers of the status of their repairs.

Repairs Could Take 24-Hours or More

According to Crenshaw’s office, the repairs may not be complete until Friday some time.

Pictures on the Comcast website show multiple fiber-optic lines cut. The lines appear to be both pole-mounted and underground.

Repairs are currently underway.

If you can obtain service, you can track the status of the repairs here.

Below are pictures from Comcast for customers who may not be able to see the Comcast link.
