We started off with a 2 package service, cable and internet, probably under $100 several years ago. Then progressively after the initial term of service, either 6 months or a year, they started slowly jacking up the prices...to $129 to $150 and the highest our bill ever got was $180!!!
Granted we did have HBO, but this was a bit outrageous considering we only had two services. They never notified us of any of the price increases beforehand. We called Comcast customer service after each rate increase and they could not care two cents about us and told us we could take what we were paying or leave it. The customer service is horrible.
We got fed up and switched our cable over to DirecTV and had an instant savings of $110 per month! Unfortunately, they are the only provider in our area that offers internet service and so we are stuck paying $70 per month without any way around it and it is exhausting having to call every month or every month to argue with these people to get them to decrease our rates or to try and get them to offer a fair, flat rate.
Two words: PRICE GOUGING! So sick of Comcast!!!
