Thousands still without internet 3 weeks after derecho


Cedar Rapids Gazette: Frustrations are growing in the Cedar Rapids area about delays in restoring internet service three weeks after the Aug. 10 storm, especially with students doing remote learning and many employees still working from home because of COVID-19. Several customers have reported continued outages, technicians not showing up when scheduled and projected reconnection dates as late as Sept. 29 — seven weeks after the storm. As of Monday afternoon, fewer than 5,900 Mediacom customers in Cedar Rapids were still without service. About 450 in Marion, 100 in Hiawatha and 30 in Newhall were are also out of service. Mediacom has set up five free community Wi-Fi hot spots that customers without service can go to.
