Frequently Asked Questions
I have TV service but it goes in and out and the picture quality is not as good as usual.
Temporary fluctuations in your cable service may occur throughout the restoration period. You may experience a brief disruption to your cable services or degradation of picture quality as commercial power continues to be restored throughout the area.
I do not currently have electrical power and am experiencing a disruption to my TV, Internet or Phone services. Should I contact Astound Broadband to schedule a service call?
If electrical power has not been restored to your home, cable services cannot yet be restored. Please wait to contact us until commercial power at your home has been restored.
Why am I experiencing a disruption to my TV, Internet or Phone services if I still have electrical power at my home?
While Astound Broadband’s facilities are generally located on the same poles as the commercial power companies, the utilities are often fed from a different power source than the cable. There are various distribution points along the way. If one of these distribution points does not have electrical power, your cable will not work.
My neighbor has TV, Internet or Phone services, but I am experiencing a service disruption.
If you have electrical power at your home, but no TV, Internet or Phone service, please contact us. Please wait to contact us until commercial power has been restored to your home.
