Half a million broadband and cable subscribers are without service in Hurricane Ida's path
Almost half a million cable, broadband, and voice subscribers are not being provided service in the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Ida according to the Federal Communications Commission. The number of those not able to access service is even greater given the more than a million without power. Louisiana has the vast majority of subscribers without either phone, TV or internet access, or a combination of those, at 468,674. Mississippi follows with 10,909, and then Alabama with 1,125. Four TV stations report still being out of service, though some of those have continued to provide news and information via their websites. There are also 13 radio stations still off the air. The FCC has not yet released anything regarding the historic flooding in the New York/New Jersey area and its impact on communications.
