Based on a sampling of thousands of cable modems, dsl, and cellular sites in

With a 10 second keepalive/30 second holdtime, I only saw, maybe, 2-3 sites
disappear per thousand based on an endpoint in Ashburn, VA.  I do see some
delay cellular side, but it looks to be solely congestion (high pings,
etc.).  However, it was minimal and was a 15 minute occurrence which
gradually peaked then dropped down to normal levels.  I'm guessing it's
usage based.

The DSL/cable had no drops that I can find.

Largely, it has had little to no effect for me.

A friend about 80 miles near the epicenter says phones are down but
Comcast Internet, by way of some miracle, is up

I was watching the news reports on TV here in California. People were either being evacuated or elf-evacuating from building in DC, NYC, etc. As the cameras panned over the crowds, I would estimate 75% of the people had their phones out. Within fifteen minutes of the event, my wife either called or received a call from her family in VA and NY.
