Making a quick recovery from Hurricane Irma, Comcast-owned Universal Orlando theme park says it plans to reopen Tuesday morning. It had closed its attractions Saturday night.
But Comcast Corp. — the nation’s largest cable-TV company, with significant widespread operations in Florida — says it’s still assessing its Irma-damaged cable and internet operations.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that more than 6 million Floridians have lost their electric power. Comcast can’t restore internet and cable-TV to those customers until electric power is restored, the company said Monday.
A Comcast spokeswoman said the company has not given a customer impact from Irma. Comcast has said it has a substantial number of customers throughout Florida, including the hard-hit Miami metro area.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have battered Comcast. Matt Strauss, executive vice president, XFINITY Services, said at a California investor conference last week that Comcast could shed 100,000 to 150,000 TV customers in the third quarter because of the storms and industry competition.
