Comcast-Corrupt Monopoly

I currently have comcast, and I hate it. Comcast is such a Monopoly it is ridiculous. Well, why do you have comcast if you hate it, Michelle(Me)? Honest answer? Because there are no other bloody cable/internet providers in my area! It's ridiculous! Even my school-dorm-ish-situation corrupted me into getting comcast (I'm a college student). When I moved into the dorms they had a comcast guy on the first floor, advertising and selling internet and cable subscriptions to unknowing new-college-teenagers. The $60 a month for 6's months is what screwed me over as a new coming student. DON'T DO IT NEW STUDENTS! I started with $60 dollars, and now I'm paying over $100+, plus late fees, because they never send me their billing statements on time. Not to mention over half of my channels don't come in, and my internet goes out every other day or so. Comcast is awful... I can't afford this ***. I am looking into changing services. If you've seen this before it's because I'm so upset I'm posting this everywhere...

Michelle, I totally understand and feel your disgust for Comcast what a racket, poor service,terrible customer service when trying to get a situation straighten out,there's no communication between the departments. I had them for approx.

3wks and it was one problem after another, countless hours, yes hours on the phone. I finally said enough is enough, made one last phone call to Comcast, chewed them a new one and took all there *** equipment and turned it in. Well I to needed cable and internet, shopped around and went with Cricket Broadband for my internet and Dish Network for my cable. I know u said ur in a dorm so installing a dish poses a problem, but if u look into Cricket or perhaps another broadband service using a usb data modem, u will be forever happy.

I can even watch TV on my computer now and I can take my usb data modem with me and use it in another computer or with my laptop. Look into and tell comcast to pack sand!!!!

Comcast in Battle Creek, Michigan - Service. I am fed up with losing internet and phone service Everytime it Rains and Snows.

If their was another service available, it would be to my best interest to look into changing. This issue has Not been remedied for years. Very Poor service for the amount of money being payed to a company that cares more for the money being received than from where there money is coming from. It would seem after all the complaints issued Comcast would care enough to correct the problems and create better customer service. Even though Comcast advertises good customer service they are very far from accomplishing that goal. I strongly suggest Comcast works diligently on achieving that goal.

Comcast: Worst Company. Ever.
I have been a customer of Comcast cable & internet services for several years now, as they bought out our old cable & Internet provider. Ever since the switch, we have had constant problems with both services. I estimate that I've been on the phone with their "customer...

I have the same problem with them! It is so frustrating!!

I usually wait before I call customer service as well, the last time I called the woman actually hung up on me!! It's unbelievable that they can get away with this. I hope Fios expands so that comcast learns some competition.

They are beyond disgusting when it comes to hidden fees, customer service and providing service that actually works.

I'm thinking of canceling my service and just going with netflix or roku.

COMCAST...customer service....not

I have logged 458 hours on my cell phone to comcast since 12/9/10. The service is rude, they lie and do not show up as promised. I have now been without t.v. for 10 days and they may show up on Friday. My options are limited as I can not have a dish where I live. This is the absolute worst ustomer service I have ever experienced. Why are they allowed to remain in business. I am writing to my congressman about the continual problems. Anyone have any better idea other than to find a new company and not pay the bill?

Comcast in Seattle, Washington - Not able to downgrade service

I am really disappointed in Comcast's customer service line. The first two times we called to downgrade our cable service we were disconnected as soon as we pressed "downgrade." The third time, we were placed on hold for more than 2 hours before we gave up. The fourth time, we were disconnected again. The fifth time, I pressed "upgrade service" and I was immediately given a representative. Unfortunately, the call was dropped again when I mentioned we were looking to downgrade. Since then we have tried calling three more times and all were disconnected. This has all been today. I am really, really disappointed in this service. It is unprofessional, unkind, and inconsiderate to the people who are paying for this product and shows a complete lack of respect for Comcast customers. Whoever has decided "by ignoring your customers you will better serve them" should rethink their business strategy. We are now seriously considering canceling our service altogether.

FTC hits Comcast CEO Brian Roberts with $500,000 fine. So what he makes over 30 million per year.

Brian needs to reread the Comcast code of conduct where he tells employees he will not tolerate dishonesty from us. Why is he on Obama's jobs council? He should be fired. Do as I say, not as I do.

Obama's slogan about "change you can believe in" should really be "the more things change the more they stay the same".

It's worse being an employee. At the Lynnwood, WA call center a fat sup named Kim Edwards sent an email requesting off the clock work. We are winning a class action lawsuit against them.

Our lawyers are experienced and successful at winning this kind of case and we have the evidence.

Comcast thinks that hiring a Perkins Coie lawyer will intimidate us. It just proves that they know they are going down and have a lot of money to waste.

The same thing has happened to me.I have called three different months right after paying our bill to downgrade and they said I couldn't do it until I made another payment. They will not let us do it. I am thinking of reporting them.

I agree!! They are horrible.

They told me that they had to transfer me that no could help me with a down grade. They raise their prices so high no one can afford to stay on the plan. They were very rude and have no respect for their customers. I have a friend who was trying to sign up for cable and tv and they have truly given her the run around.

They have given her 4 different prices, and that is after she went online and found a price for 69.99 and now they are saying that it will be 130.00?!?! They are crazy!! What a ripoff.

It would be better to go with att or satellite. Save yourself the hassle.

Comcast- crooks and liars

We've had Comcast for about 2 years now. It's been constant problems with the phone and the internet going out for a couple of minutes to several hours. Our voice mail hasn't worked correctly for over a year, and they can't seem to fix it. Yesterday, we had a tech out here again, who swore up and down he fixed the problem. He gave me his name, and his personal extension number and said call him if there were anymore problems. Internet and phone went out again, so when they came back up, I called, and he flat out lied about coming to our house. Said he was never here. He has the same last name as my mother's maiden name. We talked about that, then he tried to say he talked to me on the phone about that, when we had talked face to face at my house. Soon as I can, I'm getting a different internet, phone, and cable provider. Tired of Comcast's lies, deception, and bad customer service.

As expected, the "Consumer Forum" webpage could "not be found". I have truly had it with Comcast as I have experienced NOTHING but one problem after the other since the "digital" change-over and the installation of the Digital set-top box and the two adapters. Immediate issues range from the audio being faster than the "lip movements" (likened to an old film) to signal issues including totally black screens, NO audio, just rectangular/square colored blocks. I might just add here that the original set-top box that came via UPS was DEFECTIVE, as I was informed by the technician. He said that they all were defective and would NOT work! Luckily he had one on his truck which he installed.

I am totally unhappy with this "change-over" as I never experienced any of these problems before. In addition, there seems to be a shortage of technicians due to the long wait (about 1 week) until someone can be sent to the home to figure out what is going on! I realize that with any endeavor of this nature, there may be bugs that need to be worked out. However, these bugs should have been resolved BEFORE allowing this equipment into the customers homes. :(

My husband and I have been Comcast customers for many years, but we are seriously considering making a change as the frustration and aggravation involved with this just is not worth it. If something is not broken, don't fix it. If an attempt to "fix" it is made, the necessary tools should be available to get the job done properly.

Comcast increased our bill even when on promotion

We installed Comcast service in September with a promotion of Digital Preferred & Xfinity Internet for 12 months. From April, the cable tv bill went up by $20. When asked about this they said that Cable TV promotion was only for 6 months and Internet for 12 months. But the work order was with speicific wording 'Digital Preferred & Xfinity Internet for 12 months'. Contacted the Manager and nearest Customer center. But nobody is ready to accept the wordings on the Work order. Just going by their system record - 6 months cable and 12 months internet. We are fed up with this type of cheating. Hope that their days will be over soon.

Glad I checked the reviews as my husband and I decided to cancel the service prior to installation this week. You saved us a true headache. :)

Comcast in Portland, Oregon - Billing errors and no customer service

Requested a service from Comcast. After 2 hours did't receive the promised service. Called and canceled with no problem. Next month billed for it. Called and stated a billing error and they would correct. Next month they billed me 3 times for the same service we didn't ever receive. Called and spoke with supervisor who was flip and will credit but advised me it was my fault that I should not have been able to cancel the pay per view (NHL) even if the service was bad and the product never received. Supervisor Ross was unfriendly, cut me off when explaining and never apologized or took ownership of their continued errors.
