Comcast Christmas Spirit . . .NOT!

I recently contacted Comcast Customer Support via chat in effort to family in desperate need out. This resulted in spending over two hours chatting with 4 different representatives including at least 2 managers and getting absolutely nowhere – except a corporate run around. I have learned of a single mother of 6 – two of which are newborn twins, and all of which are elementary age, who is going through a divorce and the father is providing support. This woman was recently laid off of work for a few months but is now back at work. She has fallen behind in all of her bills and recently Comcast has cut off her internet for lack of payment. In the spirit of Christmas I was contacting Comcast to pay her past due bill for her, and arrange for family to get Xfinity Essentials for $10 per month so that her kids could do homework assignments requiring internet access. Despite speaking with multiple supervisors and repeatedly asking to speak with Tom Karinshak SVP Customer Experience I got nowhere. Below is a transcript of the chats I had with Comcast that is classic case of ineptitude and wasting a customers precious time. If I had not been online for more than 2 hours this chat would seem comical as the representatives constantly assured me they could help me and then basically gave me sales pitch for something the account holder wasn’t eligible anyway. All of this was because I was trying to do something nice for a destitute family for Christmas. I finally gave up and open to suggestions. I believe the main sticking point was that Comcast has a hard fast rule that you cannot sign up for Essentials if you are current Comcast subscriber until you have been a non-subscriber for 90 days. Nice rule eh? This seems like a great way to keep customers. The problem is cable availability in this families area is very choice limited and the school has recommended the Comcast Essentials program since the kids are in the National Food Program at the school.See families go fund me page.

Robert 12:42PMI am willing to pay their balance but they have been told by Comcast that they still would not be eligible for this deal because they are a current Comcast customer Robert 12:42PMComcast is punishing them for being a customer instead of rewarding them. Given their status this is what has driven me to get involved. Robert 12:43PMThey were told they would have to go 3 months without service before they would be eligible – nice Devendra 12:44PMOkay Devendra 12:44PMThanks for the info.

I don't know much about this plan but I believe it allows the kids to get access to the internet for school work Robert 12:52PMthey can survive without TV not sure about surviving without the internet anymore Devendra 12:53PMOkay Devendra 12:53PMThanks for the info. Devendra 12:53PMso here are the details about this plan Devendra 12:54PMAs Internet Essentials offers affordable Internet access to low-income families with at least one school-age child who is eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program.

Robert 1:04PMso far all of this info is nice but I already know this. I think you are missing the whole point of this chat Robert 1:05PMthe point is 1) they have a past due amount 2) they are or have been Comcast Customers 3) this makes them ineligible for the $10 a month program Unless Robert 1:06PMa) they cancel their subscription with Comcast for at least 3 months Robert 1:06PMI need someone that can help me execute this- not just chat about it Devendra 1:06PMOkay Devendra 1:06PMThanks for the info.

I hope you're doing well today!Waiting for response from Devendra Robert 1:20PM1 hour later . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .analyst Devendra has left room Robert 1:21PMplease read the chat so you see what is going on Antoninus 1:21PMHi, Robert. I understand that you have a question regarding the charges on the account. is that correct? Robert 1:21PM if you can't help - please tell me sooner rather than later Antoninus 1:22PMThank you for bringing this to our attention. Antoninus 1:22PMNo worries, I will definitely assist you regarding this matter. Antoninus 1:22PMLet me further check on the account so that I can provide you with information regarding this matter. Robert 1:22PMOk Antoninus 1:23PMFor the security of the account, may I ask for the account number and also the last 4 digits of the Social Security number listed on the account? Robert 1:23PMafter 1 hour of chatting this has now become a quest to crack the Comcast customer service barrier!! Robert 1:24PMPlease read the chat -----I don't know any of this!!!!!! Robert 1:24PMthis is not about paying a bill!!!!!! Robert 1:24PMare there any supervisors available???? Antoninus 1:26PMMy apologies, Robert. I am currently reviewing your conversation with the previous rep Antoninus 1:26PMI am aware of your frustration and I want to get this resolved for you. Are you wlling to give me one opportunity to resolve your issue? Robert 1:26PMOk Robert 1:27PMabsolutely - that is all I am trying to is solve a simple problem for a destitute famil for Christmas Robert 1:34PMmy guess . . . probably will take a Comcast VP to solve this Antoninus 1:35PMThank you so much for your patience and time. Robert 1:35PMdo you have a solution? Antoninus 1:39PMBased on the conversation you have with the previous agent, it shows that you are requesting for the Internet Essentials package for a family. However, you were informed that the account is disconnected already and there is a balance for the account Robert 1:39PMBasically that is all correct Waiting for response from Antoninus Antoninus 1:42PMBasically, the qualifications for the Internet essentials is that the account should not have outstanding debt to Comcast Robert 1:43PMsee chat at 12:42, 12:46 and 1:23 Robert 1:43PMi have offered to pay the balance Robert 1:44PMBUT . . .Comcast further states that you cannot be a current Comcast customer or you have to be a non Comcast customer for 3 months before applying for this plan Antoninus 1:44PMAnd as well as to disconnect the account and not be subscribed to internet service with in the last 90 days Robert 1:44PMS-o-o-o Comcast wants them to go with another carrier and then come back to them in a few months – great startegy Robert 1:45PMI sure hope Round Hill Elementary understands how their agreement with Comcast is affecting their students or actually it is probably a Loudon County Public Schools agreement Antoninus 1:46PMWhich means that, in order to provide an Internet Essentials we will need settle disconnect the account first and wait for 90 days after the Internet essentials will be provided Robert 1:46PMso in other words - you can't help me either? Robert 1:49PMI understand the Comcast policies as you have stated. This is why I am asking for a supervisor that can waive this requirement in order to help a 6 year old and 8 year old child whose mother is in need for Christmas. If this doesn't stir you I don't know that I am at the right level yet Antoninus 1:49PMI do really understand your point, Robert. That is the process for the Internet essentials. You may call 1-855-8-INTERNET (1-855-846-8376) for further options regarding having Interent essentials Robert 1:49PMbeen there done that Robert 1:49PMis a supervisor available? Robert 1:50PMthis chat is going to be great when I post it on the web Antoninus 1:50PMI can connect you to our Supervisor. However, same information will still be provided.

Robert 2:03PMyou can probably just read the last few minutes of this 1.5+ hour chat and tell me you can't help Robert 2:03PMthen I will ask if this issue can be elevated to the next level - that will save both of us some time B-gees 2:06PMRobert, if I may have correctly understood it, you've contacted us now for a Comcast account which is not yours and you were not currently listed as authorized person on that account.

Kindly ask the account holder of the account that you were trying to help to contact us. Robert 2:11PMAs stated above I am willing to pay the past due bill (anomalously) that the account holder cannot. Then I am even willing to pay a couple of months to have essentials provided to them B-gees 2:11PMWe are required to have the account holder or listed authorized person on the account to do the transactions in here that will require some changes of the account. B-gees 2:12PMOh! That is so kind of you! Robert 2:12PMAll I need is for Comcast to waive the 90 day go use Verizon requirement above and take my money Robert 2:14PMThe account is in arrears and Comcast has closed it. So I will open a new account if that is what the process requires B-gees 2:15PMRobert upon checking the account on the address that you had mentioned that is having the account name: Ashley, the status of the account is already disconnected. With this status, only our sales department can really address this concerns properly, of which you will need to initiate a call to: 1-800-9346489 or 1-800-XFINITY. Chat support is unable to do anything on this account right now. Robert 2:15PMPlease don't waste my time as the prior two representatives have.

Even if they are going to tell me the same thing B-gees 2:15PMKindly intiate the call to reach our sales or the right department who can really address your concerns. B-gees 2:16PMI am so sorry Robert, if our manager won't be able to have your concerns addressed from here. But I can have you transferred to our maanager if you want us to.

Robert 2:19PMthank you Robert 2:19PMnow approaching 2 hours of chatting with Comcast and making NO Progress B-gees 2:24PMI am still waiting for our manager's response.analyst Rey Christian has entered room Rey Christian 2:32PMHi. This is Rey, this is Bgees' Manager. Rey Christian 2:32PMI understand we need help restoring service, Robert. Rey Christian 2:32PMIs that right? Robert 2:33PMGood afternoon Rey. Is Tom Karinshak available? Robert 2:33PMOr can we share this chat with him? Rey Christian 2:34PMYes, we actually can, Robert. Robert 2:34PMNo I am not trying to restore service as I have explained to the last three or four representatives over the last 2 hours Rey Christian 2:34PMPlease tell me more about your concern. Robert 2:34PMthat's right this chat is over 2 hous long and no solution from Comcast Robert 2:37PMI am trying to pay a past due bill for a destitute family with 6 kids and then get Comcast essentials for their school age kids as a gift for Christmas Robert 2:38PMHowever as all before you have stated- Comcast has many policies in place to make sure such a Christmas gift cannot go through them as explained above Rey Christian 2:40PMOkay, Robert, first, when I checked the account, currently I do not find your name listed as an authorized user. Rey Christian 2:40PMFor security reasons on the account holder, we will not disclose any specific information or make any changes to this account without their authorization. Robert 2:40PMI am not an authorized user. I never claimed to be an authorized user. I just offered to pay their bill Rey Christian 2:40PMYou mentioned that you want to set the family living here with the Internet Essential plan. Robert 2:40PMThey don't need to know who I am Rey Christian 2:41PMThank you for confirming. Rey Christian 2:41PMYou are correct with the 3 months guideline. Robert 2:41PMThe kids apparently need internet to do their homework. Their mother is going through a divorce, has been laid off, and just had twins. Rey Christian 2:42PMThis is to make sure that the people who are enrolled to the Internet Essential Plan are those who really can't afford standard internet services. Robert 2:42PMShe can't pay her bills and keep a roof over her head let alone pay a past due cable bill Rey Christian 2:43PMI understand that you have found to be in a situation that really needs help right now, Robert. And it is very kind of you to offer help but we still have to follow the guidelines. Robert 2:43PMOne requirement is that the kids have to be on a national food program - which they are - which has much stricter standards than Comcast Robert 2:44PMSo again, you are not of the authority level at Comcast to grant a Christmas present, if you will, and waive the silly 90 day rule allowing me to help them Rey Christian 2:45PMIf you truly wish to help this family, it is best to approach them to let them know what is the current situation so that you, the family who lives in this address, and us can work around this whole thing. Robert 2:45PMI cannot spend anymore time going around and around with you folks. Please forward this chat to TOM KARINSHAK Rey Christian 2:46PMI cannot forward this chat to Tom personally, Robert, but you can click on the CLOSE CHAT button to print this chat and use it for your reference. Robert 2:47PMI have already done so. I will post this chat on the internet as well as in the Comcast blog and see if that gets the attention of Comcast leadership or someone that really acres and can help Rey Christian 2:47PMWe are here to help also, Robert. I want you to know that. Rey Christian 2:48PM Analyst Rey Christian is typing

Comcast in Winchester, Virginia - Too expensive!!!!

I been with Comcast since January, 2011... From paying I believe back then $80-$90, now I'm paying $179.76.. For basically the same thing! We have added a new box, that's it! I don't believe it's fair for us loyal customers for our bill to go higher because the "promotional time" has ended. Instead of trying to keep us, you treat us disposable once our contract has ended. To make it worst your costumer services suck!!! When you try to see if there's something else they can offer to lower our bill, we got an answer of "you saved enough money with us trow out the yrs" so basically now you are charging me what I saved? Isn't that the reason why we took Comcast in the first place, to save?... The person didn't even try to offer me anything. I been 4 yrs with this company, I even moved and continue with your services. I told the person I was going to discontinue the services the person simple said "ok, let me transfer you to that department".. Where obviously he just transfer me to the generated answering service. This is the second time this has happen, last yr same thing my bill then when up to $146, I called said I will look for another company, Same thing no one care in comcast if I stay or go... Last night I went to dinner with a friend she was in the phone with Dish. She was basically saying if she could get anything for being a loyal customer and she got 3 months of free movies. She then explain how one time they offer to lower her bill with them just offering just the channels she wanted. Isn't that great!! Why pay for channels I don't even watch?? Which I just see them trying to keep her as a customer... Plus me being a new customer I will get additional discount for 6 months. My friend also told me she used to have comcast and had to change because the same, to expensive! It's sad to say, but I'm going to have to change. I hate changes! That's why last yr I stayed with you guys but $179 it's ridicules! I don't even use the house phone. Oh by the way, when I told your customer services if he could take the phone charge away he just said it will be even higher your bill... I'm moving again soon so most likely I will be moving from you guys as well.

COMCAST PERSONAL SABATOGED OUR ACCOUNT after our call !

2.0
Details
After a lively exchanged with Comcast billing personal for the Richmond area, our router access was blocked and our authenticating information in their system changed, so that we could not successfully access our account with Comcast personal or online. We are concern that this malicious act will happen again. How can we fight such behavior from our paid providers when they don't perform as promised and get upset when you demand performance? ========================== Our COMCAST internet account was SABATOGED, immediately after a troubled with COMCAST PERSONAL Day before Thanksgiving, November 26, 2014 -- Between 12 noon et and 1pm et, I talked to a Comcast Billing representative, seeking to get a credit for NOT providing “Blast” (50 mbps) performance AFTER PAYING FOR IT FOR OVER A YEAR. Earlier during that day around 9am to 10am et, I talked to Comcast technical personal because their speeds, download and upload, was not sufficient for me to successfully work from home. That Comcast representative noted that he had to change a service code for me to go from @10 mbps, with a direct ethernet connection to their router, to @40 mbps. ( www.speedtest.net can show you your speeds) After he applied the service code setting change, the download and upload became significantly better but it was not what was advertised (Blast = 50 mbps) or BEING PAID FOR. To facilitate a credit I was instructed to call Comcast billing and request a credit. Hence, when talking to the billing department, my initial concern was a credit for non-performance but when the voice menu give the amount of our bill as @ $189 we were shocked. Now the first question became why was our bill, so high? The billing representative, who gave a name of Sandra, indicated we were on a promotional plan @149 that had expired. Then new rate was now 180 something. The service that Comcast is providing is phone, premium cable and hi-speed internet. When attempting to breakdown the coverage into each component and associated pricing. The representative became very verbal in wanting to explain what a value each service represented. My interest was pricing numbers not her long comments. This proceeded for roughly 20 mins because she controlled the call to answer the questions about the services value before addressing what value a credit would represent due to (1) Comcast NOT providing a router FOR OVER A YEAR that could support their blast criteria (2) once the new equipment was installed Comcast NOT CONFIGURING THE ROUTER SETTINGS to provide the “blast” speeds. After going back and forth with Comcast billing representative, Sandra for 40 or so minutes and being denied to speak to a supervisor, I needed to get back to work. This was my lunch time. Sandra, indicated the supervisor was in a meeting and would call me back. A CALL I HAVE NOT RECEIVED , 10 HOURS LATTER. Sandra, transfer me to sales to provide the pricing info that she could not. After verifying again and talking to sales, I got all the info I needed within 5 minutes. When attempting to log into the account within minutes of the termination of this call. We receive a XFINITY screen that in essence BLOCKED access to our ROUTER. After providing the required logins we received an ERROR MESSAGE that provided a number to call. We called that Comcast number, when authenticating or verifying the last four of our social, THEY HAD CHANGED! BOTH SOCIALs WERE CHANGED… Keep in mind we have authenticated at least 4 separate times within the last 4-5 hours. After requesting to speak to a Supervisor and explaining that I believe our account had been purposely SABOTAGED by COMCAST PERSONAL …. I asked him to review the notes and he graciously was able to help us get back online. THE QUESTIONS remained! WOULD THE COMCAST PERSONAL THAT PURPOSELY TRIGGERED THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM FAILURE revisit THIS ACCOUNT and IMPACT ITS ACCESS AND PERFORMANCE AGAIN? THIS WAS A MALICIOUS ACT and WOULD THIS HAPPEN AGAIN TO US OR SOMEONE ELSE? Comcast representative attempted to assure us that this would not happen BUT there is little confidence in Comcast after this. We have two (2) Comcast accounts, this account is in Virginia and the same tactics has been used before by Comcast personal to my Florida account! In many regions there cannot be multiple cable companies located within the same geographical area thereby making COMCAST a MONOPOLY in many territories. QUESTION, WE ARE LOOKING TO WEAN AWAY FROM COMCAST. PLEASE PROVIDE OTHER ACCEPTABLE OPTIONS AND COST To replace the individual functionality of (1) Land line phone service (2) tv content provider (3) hi speed internet. COMCAST need to RESEARCH AND TAKE ACTIONS AGAINST ALL EMPLOYESS THAT PERFORM SUCH ACTIONS…. THEIR ACTIONS and ASSOCIATED OUTAGE caused A SIGNIFICANT SUPPORT OUTGAGE FOR MY MAJOR NATIONAL ACCOUNT. I COULD NOT VPN INTO THEIR SYSTEM FOR SUPPORT CALLS AND MEETINGS. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO GET BETTER SERVICE FROM THIS MONOPOLY PROVIDER? ?

Details
I moved and had my Comcast service transferred, or so I thought. The technician who connected our service, was haughty and distracted. He connected one room, while our service specifies, all rooms will be accessible. He spent most of his time talking to friends and the company. He finally managed to connect us in two rooms, but would not install another recorder. A week later, another technician showed up, but without the equipment. Five days later another technician was scheduled to arrive and I was contacted three times about the appointment. Now I have waited four hours, and no one has shown up I tried to call Comcast, but the wait on the telephone was initially 15 to 20 minutes, an hour later it was 30 to 35 minutes. Even their chat room is too busy to respond. This is a company that wants to prove it can handle the load of additional customers, yet it cannot handle the customers it has. If it weren't so much trouble, I'd gladly switch to another provider, but in many places there is no competition. I keep hoping my situation will get resolved, but I seriously doubt it.

You mention in many places there is no competition, but you did not clarify if you are stuck with only comcast. If you have a choice, I would cancel.

Comcast could care less what you are going through. They truly only want money and there are millions of people still willing to give them their hard earned money for that sshiitt service.

You are being walked all over and taken advantage of, and you are lying down taking it up the arrsse. Cancel and give your money to some other company.

Comcast Deleted DVR Recordings, Won't Credit

Comcast deleted seven months of recordings on my DVR remotely by accident (they did a format instead of a reset), but will only credit me one month ($9.95). They said that it worked for 7 months, and I said, yeah, but you just deleted 7 months of what I paid for it for. I want to be credited back for at least those 7 months of DVR fees. It's ridiculous that these companies forget how to do the right thing when they know they've done something wrong. It's time for Comcast to go Bank of America way. Internet Provider Transfer Day?

XFAILITY/COMCRAP. I worked at the Lynnwood, WA call center where a fat sup named Kim Edwards sent email telling to work off the clock without pay.

We were fired when we complained to HR, but Kim (who is on her 4th husband) still works there.

We are going to win a class action lawsuit against them. call retention dept and ask for discounts/promos.

Why should they refund you? The product did its job did it not?
