As President Donald Trump surveys damage from Hurricane Harvey, the full impact of the storm to local broadband and wireless networks is not yet known.
The storm had knocked out more than 280,000 cable and wireline telecom hookups in Texas and Louisiana by Tuesday afternoon, the Federal Communications Commission reports. The count is up significantly since Monday, when the government reported that nearly 190,000 cable and wireline customers were out of service.
