Comcast is Horrible!

This is a WARNING to those considering using Comcast! I have NEVER done business with a company that is so incredibly inept! I have been with Comcast for many years because I don't have another option in the small Southern town in which I live. I really wish the city would give license to some other company that cares more about their customers. In the past few months my Comcast Internet has been down more than 20 times! I hardly get through a day without some kind of problem. Today we received our bill and there was an extra $40 dollars tacked on the bill for Starz. We have never had Starz nor have we ever asked for it. We called and had to wait and wait. The wait time is terrible as are the techs. The lady finally determined that there was an "error" and she was giving us credit as if we were receiving some kind of reward. When my Internet system is down it is not unusual for the company to send a person out who will tell me he knows nothing about the Internet and that he only works on cable television. The Internet techs blame the linemen and the linemen blame the techs. On may occasions when I have reported a problem it is not unusual for the person with whom I am talking to tell me the local techs don't know what they are doing. From the first day we joined Comcast to the present time we have perfect payment. You better believe they check to see if you are a good paying customer. Once I reached a person in upper level management and he told me that they could not afford to lose customers with perfect payment. He said they spent too much time running down equipment from people who moved and took equipment with them and were behind in their payments. I pay well over $125 dollars a month for cable and Internet and that is a LOT of money for a retired schoolteacher! Yet, I have had techs show up and give my computer and lines to my computer a cursory look and tell me I would be better off with Dish. Once when I demanded that something be done the guy told me to QUIT Comcast and leave them alone! I could go on and on. PLEASE talk with your friends who use Comcast and if you have another option please look elsewhere. Jerry in Mississippi PS: Once I could only get Comcast out to check my system only after writing the FCC. I plan to contact the FCC again and I plan to contact the BBB.

Nationalize Comcast Limited Service

Comcast sucks $ from the poor and/or frugal to pay for premium services for the rich and/or addicted customers. Regressive rate structures charge $15 for fewer channels than can be seen for free with a digital box. Comcast's failure to provide competitive service is illegal (which is why they are being sued by customers) and the company should be nationalized for limited services, that is, the basic local channels plus public access, education & government channels should be free to all customers.

Comcast in Spokane, Washington - Bait and switch

We received a coupon with an attractive offer to switch from Comcast to Direct TV. The savings were significant on a pre-month basis. The day the installers showed up, they were in a rush from the minute they knocked on our door. Once installed the picture was of poor quality, they unplugged my surround sound (it took an hour to figure that out) During the discussion with the salesman over the phone, the rep from Direct TV told us they had "On Demand" just like Comcast. They didn't and when we ask why they told us they did (at no extra cost) we were told it would cost $120 to hook up a facsimile.(something we were to run through our computer ? ) When the installers left they handed us a 71 page booklet and told us it was all we would need. There wasn't even a picture of the controls naming the buttons and explaining what they did. There is a significant difference between Comcast and Direct TV and I expected to have a learning curve but I felt we were just a number and when they left we were told to "play with it, its self-explanatory" It's far from self-explanatory and I can't trust a company that says one thing and changes their story "after" they have it installed and Comcast is disconnected. Never again and I will tell my friends how we were treated like a number in a column in an Excel spread sheet. What's next ? Poor product poor service ! Unplug me please.

Comcast in Washington, District Of Columbia - You all have been giving me the run around

I have been trying to get someone to help me since October the 10th and all I have been getting is the run around so now I going to leave comcast and go to verizon,ever time I call go get help I have been either put on hold and they never return or hung up on or told a lie by several different people and I do document everything that they said and done. It seems like no one there can fix my problem,and this is not the first time. By me being a customer I would of thought that comcast would not treat there custumers like I have never know a company like this. and I will be letting the complaint people know what I have been going though.

Comcast lies thru their teeth!

No matter what problem you have on an ongoing basis.they tell you have equipment that u don't and it's your computer..it's your anything but us. All the work behind the scenes.....affects us...but if u call to figure out what to do with what they gave you this day...........It's you .not us. If they would fess up once in awhile.......we can better handle the *** they are dishing out...but no...it's your fault not ours...This powerboost issue (for more dollars) has screwed up there main delivery and they just dont know how to fix it.....so our bandwiths are adjusted everyday in different ways..to the point of having and upload speed 3 times faster than the download...........that is ludicruis!!!!!!!!!!!!

In short, over the summer I signed up for Comcast's Triple Play package and was quoted both the services I would be receiving and the price I would pay per month (around $120). I signed this agreement/contract for two years, locking the price in. Now, I receive a...

Comcast in Houston, Texas - Sercive tech disconnected MY line while disconnecting my neighbors line!!!

Lied to by phone reps, told service was being done in my area that day/night, should be up by midnight. Next day, still no service internet or cable tv. A second and third call to Comcast left a message for 3 different supervisors to return my calls. No contact from a supv. A service tech disconnected MY line while he was disconnecting my neighbors line. The service tech was out on 10/23/08. Luckily my neighbors kept the work order from the service tech so Comast shold know what kind of *** they employ! I need to file a formal complaint with Comcast but am unable to get a hold of a supv to do this! They are NEVER available or do NOT return my phone calls!

I don't work for comcast, but I've always heard if something doesn't sound quite right, it isn't right.

And your tale sounds fishy. Like maybe you neglected to say that you were also late paying or something.

Come on! Fess up or don't complain!

It's obvious you work for Comcast! Like I said, I DID report the problem and was lied to, there was no routine maintenence in my area.

If I would have known the truth then a tech could have come out a day sooner! So what's the excuse for no one returning my phone calls?

I have had issues w/ Comcast internet in the past, emailed the CEO and boy were the Houston Comcast boys kissing my butt after that! Oh yeah and I AM getting a service interupt credit!

Sorry,it has been a while and I need to catch up with things.

Look folks, calm down and start with the basic problem. :) You have no service, call into Comcast and report a trouble call for - No Service-. Trying to remote troubleshoot when your service is totally out just doesnt make sense. Ask for a tech to be scheduled to your address. Comcast provides a service and the goal is for you to be happy. Once your service is restored. Take a deep breath and then call 1-800-comcast for possible service interupt credit.

The disconnect issue could have come by mistake, some boxes have tags for addresses that could be unreadable, or the tech may have just goofed. Techs are human. Comcast does care for its customers and a happy one goes a lot further than the other.

COMCAST STRIKES AGAIN

Ok, so I haven't been able to access my email account with Comcast for the last few days. Today, I found out that my incoming email has been getting bouncec back to the senders. (mind you I've had this account for about 20 years (through many name changes). I called Comcast tonight and after sitting on hold for quite a while the agent answered. I explained that I could not receive emails through Thunderbird and also could not log in through Comcast. net. After running some "tests" he came back on and said the problem must be with Thunderbird and he was going to transfer me to them. I told him, the problem wasn't Thunderbird as I couldn't log on even through the Comcast site. He said, let me run some more tests at which point we were either disconnected or he hung up, take your pick. I called back and got a very nice lady who told me my account had been suspended. No notes in the record as to why and she could find no reason. She said there were not even any notes made by the previous man I had been talking to. Makes me believe that he really did hang up. The lady re activated my account and I am up and running. I did ask to speak to a supervisor as the explanation as to why it had been suspended in the first place wasn't sufficient. She said he was on another call and wasn't available, she agreed to put me on *** to speak to him (only one supervisor on duty by the way). Needless to say that after waiting a few minutes, I was disconnected and never did get to speak to a supervisor. The plus side, my email is working again. The minus side, I don't know why it was shut off and all incoming emails for the last 4 days have been bounced back to the senders. They probably think I'm dead. LOL

Comcast in Natick, Massachusetts - No e-mail for 4 days and counting.

I have been without e-mail for 4 days so far. Comcast says the issue has been passed up to the next level of technical support. They explain that e-mail is a free service that is included with internet service. They explain this with the typical "we do not care whether you like it or not" tone that Comcast is famous for. Prior to Comcast I had Adelphia as my ISP. They took care of every problem while I was on the phone. Comcast bought their business. They increasd my monthly fee by 30% and it has been all down hill since. I dislike Comcast more than any other company I do business with. When will there be some viable competition in southern New Hampshire?

Comcast in Belvidere, Illinois - Lying customer service reps!!!

I was told last week one price to pay so no disconnection by 2 different csr and she told me she was making notes on the computer that I would come in on thursday to pay. I went to pay yesterday and it had doubled! I called and asked about this and the csr told me there were notes but not I what I was told they were. I asked her if I could talk to a supervisor, she told me she would have one call me back, they NEVER did so now my cable will be disconnected on saturday!!! If they had told me the correct amount last week or said it might go up I would have saved that $. I am a single mother of 2 little girls and sometimes I do get behind, but I always pay whats due!!! I had no problem when it was INSIGHT!!! Until COMCAST TOOK OVER!!!!
