New Construction Home - I have been trying for over a month to get taps run to my house.  My neighbor 50 feet away has service.  Techs have come out on three different occassions, and it is always the same -  You need hot taps.  the Maintenance team was supposedly out to do the work on the 15th, but I received no confirmation this happened (no tag on the door).  When I look outside, there is nothing new and no hot taps in a location that a tech can get to to connect up the house.  At this point, I am having to wait for 5 more days before a tech will come out.  If they come out and tell me there are no Hot taps, it is going to be another week before I can get maintenance out and then 4 or 5 days for the techs for installation (this would be going into week 7 or 8 of waiting for service).  How can I get someone out to verify the taps are in place sooner?

I've asked a Comcast employee to help you. You should expect a reply in this thread.

Hi TimScruggs! After reviewing your account, I was able to verify Tech Ops did come out on 5/15 to make your tap hot. Normally when work is done on the outside of the home, the agents will not make physical contact with customers. I'm showing the job was completed and now we are just waiting for the field tech to come out and complete your install. To ensure everything is completed I would like to follow up with you after your tech leaves, is that ok with you?

 Thank you for verifying that information. Since we have been waiting six weeks, and we work from home most of the time, we would appreciate you expediting our appointment  so that we can have cable and Wi-Fi service prior to Wednesday. Thanks.

TimScruggs -- I reviewed our quota to see if we have any sooner appointments available. Due to the size of this job, installing all four of our products, Wednesday is the soonest available appointment day.

The urget need is internet so we can work from home. At this point we request that you put us a priority for that, please. Again after six weeks of waiting on Comcast we are now in urgent need.

Being new customer ordering a suite of your products, most companies would be diligent to make sure we had a great experience. So far, not so much.

We were looking today and it may be the taps are down the street from our house.  That would be one pole over and across the street.  What happens if it needed to be run down one more pole, and then across the street to the pole on our yard?

I've updated your work order to inform Tech Ops of your findings. They will be able to determine exactly which taps they need to they need to be connected to. I will follow up after your installation to see how everything went.
