2 During September 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused significant damage to our operations in certain geographies within C&W, including the British Virgin Islands and Dominica, resulting in disruptions to our telecommunications services within these islands. These C&W markets are included in the "Other" category in the accompanying tables. As of September 30, 2018, mobile services have been restored and we are in the final stages of restoring services to our fixed-line customers in these markets. As we are currently in the process of finalizing the subscriber count, which we expect to complete before December 31, 2018, we remain unable to accurately estimate our subscriber numbers as of September 30, 2018. Accordingly, the September 30, 2018 subscriber numbers reflect subscriber amounts as of August 31, 2017, as adjusted through September 30, 2018 for (i) net voluntary disconnects and (ii) disconnects related to customers whose accounts are delinquent. Additionally, for C&W Impacted Markets, we are unable to accurately estimate our homes passed numbers as of September 30, 2018.
