HARTFORD, CT (WCBS 880) – One official from Connecticut is reminding those in his state not to pay for services they didn’t get.

WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau On The Story

Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he has been assured by cable and phone providers that consumers will be refunded for services not received during the two storms in Connecticut that knocked out power for long stretches in September and October, and well into November.

“The companies are assuring me that they will make those refunds,” he said.

However, Cablevision says it will ony reimburse customers for loss of services after power was restored to their homes. So, if you got power back after a week of being out and didn’t have cable back for three days after that, for example, you should expect reimbursement only for those three days.

Do you think Cablevision’s policy is fair? Sound off in the comments section below!
