Don: Hi! Great to have you on chat! How are you, Andrew?

Andrew : OK you?

Don: That's good to know!

Don: I'm doing fine as well, thank you so much for asking!

Don: I understand that this is an escalated chat, Andrew. Would you mind if I review the previous transcript for 2-3 minutes?

Andrew : I am annoyed with the speed of service however, I was told I would be contacted within 48 hours on Monday to set up my service as a new customer. It has been much longer than that.

Andrew : OK

Don: I have already read the previous transcript, Andrew.

Andrew : great

Don: I sincerely apologize but this is the billing department. Please allow me to route you to the correct department that will assist you further with your pending installation.

Andrew : WOW was it not clear from the previous transcript what my issue was? How did I get to billing?

Waiting for response from Don

Amritpal: You have reached Sales Department and I will be assisting you with your concern for today. Please give me 2-3 minutes to review your conversation with the previous representative. This will give me a better understanding of the issue at hand so that we can resolve it in the most efficient way possible. Will that be okay?

analyst Don has left room

Andrew : Is this the sales department?

Amritpal: yes, I am from Sales team.

Amritpal: How are you doing today?

Andrew : OK

Andrew : Just want the issue resolved.

Amritpal: Glad to hear it. That's awesome!

Amritpal: I will surely assist you for that.

Amritpal: Andew, may I have your full name and complete service address where you have placed the order?

Andrew : Andrew Redacted

Amritpal: Much appreciated, thank you so much.

Andrew : Hello?

Amritpal: I am pullingup your address, as I am unable to find out the address.

Andrew : My address isn't in your system?

Amritpal: I have double checked in my system, and I am still unable to find a match for this address. It could be that the address never had our services and has not been registered with us yet. Was this address recently constructed or renovated?

Andrew : No

Andrew : Try Redacted Same City

Andrew : I have had this service at this address in the past

Amritpal: Ok, if you don't mind, I'm going to take a few moments to look into this, and I'll get back with you asap.

Andrew : three or four years ago

Andrew : I also am a new customer and set up a service request last Monday

Amritpal: Redacted I am getting this address. Is that correct?

Andrew : Yes

Amritpal: Thanks for confirming me that.

Amritpal: Andrew, as I can see that we need to create the new account, as your account has not been created yet.

Andrew : Are you kidding???

Amritpal: May I have your permission to create the new account of yours?

Andrew : I called Monday and again two days ago

Andrew : To set up a new service. i have spend over two hours talking to you just to be your customer and now I find that I am not in the system? That is really annoying.

Amritpal: I truely understand that, however, as i double check this address, your account has been disconnected on 09/07/2012, and after that there is not any account created under your name.

Andrew : And the system says that you never received a call from me?

Amritpal: I really apologize, as I am unable to access the call history fro mmy end.

Andrew : All right. If this is how I can expect service from your company I am tempted to stay with my current Internet provider.

Amritpal: I do understand that, however, that is the best I could do for you.

They when on to request a credit check again. That would be two hard inquiries against my credit to set up the same service.

Product or Service Mentioned: Comcast Sales Representative.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

I didn't like: Not fixing problem, Representation.
