Comcast in Troy, Michigan - Doesn't Honor Commitment

In December 2009 I signed up for 12 months of cable, phone, and internet service beginning December 29th, 2009. This package was offered by a Comcast Sales Rep (Matthew Burtaw) and the price was guaranteed for 12 months. Service was offered, accepted, and then installed on December 29th, 2009. Today I received my October 2010 statement and my price has changed. Upon calling Comcast, I was advised that my account was "audited" and I should not have been given three DVR's at the price I was paying. Therefore, based upon this audit, Comcast decided to increase my price to reflect current market prices. The rep indicated there was nothing that could be done. I asked to speak to a Supervisor which was not available. I was told I would receive a call back within 24 hours. I am writing this letter 72 hours later and still have not received a call.

They are ignorant. We were quoted $163 a month.

This was for our cable, DVR, phone and high speed internet all together. Our bill has never even been below $280 per month. You get the slightest bit behind, and they disconnect you. When you do try to ask them to allow you 3 extra days to pay your bill, they deny to work with you.

Oh well if they disconnect me this time, I will look for an attorney. I think there are more than enough complaints against them to file a class action law suit.

I am fed up with them. They screwed our address up, yet they take it out on us as if we did something wrong.

Thank you for being a valued comcast customer

i find it ironic that they have this statement: "Thank you for being a valued comcast customer" on the same bill where they increased our monthly service charge by 47.5%, from $77.42 to $114.54, and the reason is we had a special which expired. I can understand that, but considering the average employee gets 1.5-3% pay increase every year, if he or she is lucky! 47.5% seems way too high. However, we're the consumers and we have a choice, so i chose to disconnect my services with comcast...all of them. Maybe when comcast loses enough customers,they'll reconsider such price hiks...oh wait, they don't have to, they can just lay off some emplyoees...the same rude ones in their so called customer service department.

Comcast in Washington, District Of Columbia - Try to steal money from people that cancels there service

I cancelled comcast for a better deal . They were upset do to the fact I didn't contact them first . The thing is I did and was told they do not price match . I asked for a final bill . They sent a man out to get the equipment which was 40 dollars. They sent me a bill including the 40 dollars that was supposed to be subtracted when it was returned . I sent them a letter with the paper the man gave me after he took the boxes .They still will not deduct the 40 dollars, even with proof .I think these people are a bunch of arrogant basterds that thik the law does not apply to them. I would rather not watch TV if they were the only cable company left in the world .They are *** and make too much money for what they do .They sent me a collection letter stating that they will put my bill to the credit companies . It's hard to deal with bottom feeders that do not take the time to acknowledge people and there rights . So , screw them they are useless and not very smart. tsnake

Comcast Expects Payment For Susp. Serv.!!

If you are reading this you probably have had problems with the idiots at comcast atlanta also. These fools expect me to pay for service and continue to pay for service that I do not have. I paid over 600.00 dollars for past bill amounts due to some issues I had with transfering my equipment to a new address and some unreturned equipment charges totaling 800.00 more dollars that they tried to bill me. In the three weeks I didnt have service begining at my new address I still had these outrageous bills and only owed 150 from my previous address. So after they fixxed my services but not my bill I didnt pay any payments while they fixxed the crazy charges on my bill so my actual charges I was incuring mounted up obviously. When they finally fixxed my bill they cut me off because I owed for two months, I paid the total amount that I owed up to the time they cut me off. I then called to get my service turned back on after coming back into town three and a half weeks later and they say to have my services turned back on I have to pay the previous months bill which I did not have service for AND the current bill that wasnt even due yet!! The worst part of the whole situation is that the rep had the nerve to say that "if I was looking for an adjustment, I could forget it because I wasnt going to get it" Ive never gotten or asked for anything I did not have coming and took that as a direct insult.All I asked was for my bill to be fixxed where I had been charged for that three and a half weeks I was cut off that was all. I asked that my bill be prorated for that month for the time it was cut off and I would pay what I owed and the current bill. I paid everything else and they denied me what I shouldnt have been charged in the first place! On top of all that I signed upfor a triple pla with phone service and never recieved the phone modem but surely get charged for it every month! That was it for me so Im done with them and urge everyone and anyone not to deal with Comcast Atlanta. They are crooks str8 up!

The chat rep was a ***. Comcast is not blocking any websites.

I assure you, it's a computer issue.

The fact that you could access it with Cox is what's called a coincidence. Your computer isn't going to work the same every day for the rest of your life and that's not your ISP's fault.

I am on a comcast sytem in the Northeast USA area and I have never had a prob getting www.xtube.com or for that matter any other sites I have tried. I dont have any parential security on thie pc either as I dont have any kids that would use this pc. I am using win XP with all updates.

You might want to try a proxy server that will mask your IP addy and see if that works.

Comcast/XFinity Cable

I have been having problems with my cable service since March 10. I have called the COMCAST number numerous times to no avail. Service technicians who have come to check the service out have told me that my signal is low and that a new line must be run. Construction was scheduled on 7 July and cancelled on 8 July with no explanation, it was scheduled again on 20 July but nothing has been done. I have notes/work orders on my conversations/trouble calls going back to 4 April, unfortunately I did not keep records of the previous calls. Would love to go to Fios but that service is not available in my neighbor. What can I do???

I am very frustrated with Xfinity because I cannot control rewind and slow motion settings - the system has a mind of its own! Before the change to Xfinity, I could stop play on a dime, rewind, and replay in slow motion on command.

I used it frequently to rewatch plays in sports. Now, no matter how much I try, action resets a few seconds behind the location I select. It's ruined slow motion replay on demand. Am I alone or are others having the same problem?

I can't even pause where I want - after a moment, the screen will reset a few seconds behind where I stopped action. It makes slow motion replay impossible or super tedious because it resets 4-5 second behind the action I want replayed, an eternity in slow motion. A Comcast technition had never heard of the problem so I scheduled a service call. Am I wasting my time?

Is the problem systemic? Under the old, pre-Xfinity Comcast, I was in control.

Not now. Please let me know if you have the same problem

I feel your pain, I am in the same situation here, very very poor costumer service, they cancelled several calls, I have had numerouse techs out here and still the same sucky service and then they raise the rates. I don't have any other choices here, they have Uverse blocked where they can't come in and had satelite but it sucked even worse. and now with the new xfinity it has gotten even worse, harder to use program guide and on demand never works now, but still no discounts or even help getting anything fixed.

Comcast does it again

I just received my bill from Comcast-Xfinity whatever name they are calling themselves now. I noticed a $7.95 HD Technology Fee, I called to find out what this was but never really got an answer except all companies charge it. This is on top of the $7.95 each for the 2 HD boxes I have. Plus in speaking with the rep I was told I also pay for the digital box I was told was FREE three months ago. The rep had no idea what I was talking about and said they were never free. I use to pay $68.00 for basic cable and I'm now up to $96 and haven't changed anything because of MY choice, its all been because of changes Comcast made.

I know how you feel. EVERY month my Comcast/ Xfinity (???!!!) bill changes from the prior month, wihtout any changes initiated on my part.

When speaking with representatives from the company, I get get a different story from each person I talk to!

Recently, I finally received a total of $60.00+ in credits for billing errors over the past four months. Everybody at this company has a different story...Very, very frustrating.

Comcast sucks

I've been a Comcast customer since they came into being. For years Things were fine, but as the system aged, problems started to *** in. For close to a year I would continually loose the internet and the phone and comcast would send some shlub out to my house, four days later, and do the same thing the last shub did. Finally they discovered that the coax was so old they were surprised anything was working, so they replaced that. Still the same problem. The next shlub replaced the modem. Still the same problem. The next guy ran some tests and found out I had a weak signal. Another four day wait, but finally they fixed the system. Two days ago everything went out again. I called the 'press 1 or 2 or 3 or 4' system and talked to another representative of this fine company. I told her of all the problems I have been have and that unlike their wonderful commercial about giving their customers credit, I have never received any. She ask me if I would be home between 3 and 7 that afternoon. I said I would and she said a repair person would be out. She also said I would get a $60 credit. Well doesn't this sound great. I sat down to read a book and about 1 hour later, all my services came back on. IT'S A MERICLE!!!!! I called Comcast back to cancel the appointment and after getting lost in the "press this" maze, they finally acknowledged my pending appointment. Only problem is that it was for 3 days from now between the hours of 10 AM and 3 PM. Now what if I had been sitting here between the hours of 3 and 7 today and no one showed up? Do you think I would be a bit PO'ed?
