OK so I am paying a horrendous bill and I was looking at different packages.
I would like someone to explain this to me.
and I quote
You'll get the same great savings found in our pre-built deals
and here is one of the prebuild deals. It includes the top tear internet and the top tier cable TV for 125.00
As it says, the broadcast fee and sports fee are not included and neither is any equipment.
and then you have this...
Same top tier internet and same top tier cable TV. same disclaimers about the sports fee and broadcast fee not being included. price is 161.90?!?!?!?
Those prices are if you are a new customer. If you are existing the price jumps up to 199.90, again the same disclaimers about no sports fees or broadcast fees being included.
Now check this out. Back to being a new customer. and the customize your own plan.
Note it says 20 and in the monthly amount is says 0.00
and when added the price jumps up to 48.90...
So say they are adding in the sports fee and the broadcast fee..
OK so let me get my bean counter..
20.00 + 28.00 + 8.00 = 56??
OK so that doesn't add up right.
Cable box is 9.00 so that's not going to work either.
also check this out.
OK so you see where it says my current services and you see where it says 200Mbps for my current service.
Also take note of the price at 159.90. I have 400Mbps internet and 125+ channels selected
Now I have 75Mbps and 125+ channels selected the the price went down to 155.90?!?!?!? a 4 dollar savings?
To do up to 200MBit costs more than going up to 400Mbit??
Now, this is important. Read the disclaimer about the sports fee and the broadcast fee not being included.
My bill right now with 200Mbit and 125+ channels has a TOTAL of 175.18. That includes all fees and taxes. So once I add in the 28.00 and the 8.00 and any rental gear I would be so far above what I am paying now it would be crazy. On what planet are these "deals"
Remember I said to pay attention to the 159.90 price
All I did was click on Next for it to select the cable modem/router. I currently have my own so I do not pay a rental fee. How come the price dropped by 10.00 just by clicking on next?
The screens above say I have a 200Mbit service right??.. Are we sure??
Now that is downright strange.. I can tell you that my speeds have NEVER gone above 160Mbit.
And before anyone gets their panties in a bunch thinking I am on a WiFi Connection. I am not!!
Nope no WiFi there.
And before anyone makes a comment about the number of apps I have running...
As you can see the computer is built for well above what I am doing at the moment.
My network connection is a 10Gbit to my network. and the connection to the modem is 1Gbit.
And for those that might believe that the steed test on Comcasts website is going to be any better...
You can think again.
I am wondering why one part of the Xfinity website says I have a 200MBit connection and another says I have a 400 MBit. I am wondering where the deals are because right now I am paying 106 for my package which might be 400 MBit tho I never remember signing on for 400Mbit because I know the maximum I have ever gotten is under 200Mbit. I have 75 bucks in fees from a single cable box, sports fee, broadcast fee and taxes. That would be added onto any package deal that is being offered to me right now. so 159 + 75 = 234 for the exact same package I have now. How is that a deal? I forgot there is a 10.00 DVR fee as well.. Not sure what that is about because I see no mention of any kind of a DVR fee on any of the plans or even with my current plan.
Why do new customers get better deals??? Why do prices not add up with the packages when the simple math is done? Why am I not able to stop my TV service?? It will not allow me to do that... I am able to select only internet if I am a new customer and it is at one [Edited: "Language"] of a deal compared to what I am paying for now. 200Mbit internet is 39.99 a month and 400Mbit internet is 55.00 a month. The 400Mbit INCLUDES unlimited data and also the modem/router. I can get a package deal for a new customer that is 125 channels 400mbit internet, includes the modem/router and also the cable box with DVR and the price is 85.00 a month. totaling 113 a month with the broadcast fee and sports fee added in. Best rate I can get without the DVR cable box and the modem/router is 159.99 without the broadcast fee and sports fee added in.
Can someone please explain to me why there are these wild differences. and misinformation about getting the same deals as pre-bundled packages when it is clearly not true.
