Comcast is offering free Internet for anyone who wants it.
But some people are worried about getting online and that’s what the company says it’s trying to do to mitigate its fiber optics outage, which has caused millions of customers to miss work and other services.
The company says people will be able to access its service for about 10 hours a day through the end of May, which is a little more than two weeks.
It says this is the first time since the 2011 storm that Comcast has offered free Internet.
It’s also giving people who have lost power in the past an extended period of time.
Comcast says the company has installed fiber optic equipment throughout its network to mitigate the effects of the storm, but it says the network will be fully restored by mid-June.
The problem is that the Internet is only available when the company is actually on the line.
The outage has been blamed on a problem with a new software program that is supposed to make sure that the network is being upgraded to handle a higher volume of traffic.
The program was supposed to have been in place by March, but the outage has slowed down the process, Comcast says.
