U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is asking the heads of the nation's largest cable, telephone and Internet providers to give customers dealing with Hurricane Irma a break.
Nelson wants the companies to issue rebates for service interruptions and impose a 60-day moratorium on late fees and other penalties.
Nelson made the request in letters sent to the CEOs of:
- Charter Communications
- Cox Enterprises
- Frontier Communications
The FCC says at least 8.1 million subscribers are without service in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia because of Irma.
