A lot of people are upset because their power is back, but their Internet is down. Time Warner and Centurylink often cannot begin their repairs to a specific pole/street until the high power supply lines are fixed (and cleared) by Duke Power. If a pole needs to be replaced? Duke Power will install it, repair the electrical space, and then the communication companies can do their thing. We've had calls from a number of clients because Time Warner is still down in many areas (and in some CenturyLink too). Give them time. With power restored to most of Mebane only last night, Internet providers are just getting going. One reason it seems like more CenturyLink customers got Internet back with power? A lot of phone lines, used for DSL, were buried underground decades ago by Mebtel and avoided storm damage. Most TWC lines are aerial on poles and being lower on the pole exposed them to more tree damage than the higher power lines. If you HAVE to have Internet today - consider buying a prepaid WiFi hotspot or 3G USB dongle to use for a month. WalMart has them.
