Outage Credit

I have had multiple service outages in my local area that have caused my internet to be out during the middle of the day for an hour (11/30/20, 12/1/20, and 12/8/20). I had to setup my mobile Tmobile hotspot so that I could continue performing remote learning for my middle school students. Tmobile charges money for any usage over 10GB and I would like to get a daily credit for the inconvenience provided by xfinity as they have performed unannounced maintenance in the middle of the day.

I thought I would post some of the errors that I've been consistently seeing on my cable modem (Motorola MB8600) so my post comes up on keyword search by other xfinity customers. ***Please note that these errors don't necessarily mean it is an xfinity service outage issue. Xfinity customers should still take the time to recheck items that they are responsible for maintaining in their home (e.g. coax cable runs, cable splitters, customer-provided wireless AP\router and cable modem). If all of the aforementioned items are properly maintained and serviced by the xfinity customer, then the following cable modem errors "might" also be caused by local node\xfinity service issues that an xfinity customer can not rectify and are the sole responsibility of xfinity support personnel to identify and resolve:

Apologies again. Credit has been applied as appropriate.

 

Most all of the recent outages in your area have been labeled as unplanned. Scheduled non-emergency maintenance work is typically done in the overnight hours as to have a lesser impact on our customers.  

 

We have ETRs (Estimated Time of Repairs) that we can communicate to customers based on outages.

Sometimes those ETRs can change and vary depending on the scope and complexity of the issue.

TheETRs can change once our technician arrives on the scene of a fiber cut or a car crash into a utility pole or waiting for the police or fire department to declare an area safe.

 

These are some examples of items that can impact any ETR. Thanks for your patience.

I had another xfinity service (internet & TV) outage again today (12/21/2020) caused from some maintenance being performed by comcast technicians. Expected outage time frame per xfinity service status checker was supposed to be from approx 12/21/20 5:35am CST and finish by 12/21/20 @ 1:05pm CST. It is now 12/21/20 @ 1:35pm cst and xfinity status checker states the following update: "Your XFINITY services may be impaired, and we are working to resolve any technical issues in your area. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience." Xfinity has now conveniently changed their service outage message with no ETA for remediation. I've had to deal with these unplanned xfinity service outages on a daily basis ever since I signed a 2yr contract & upgraded my service from 300mbps to 1gb on Dec 3, 2020. Each service outage I've had to personally call in to xfinity customer support or post in this forum so i could get a credit for service/quality i pay for but I'm not receiving. Is there anyway xfinity could be more customer service focused & proactively give credits for "known" service outage issues? The whole process is really shady especially since xfinity has no issues raising rates & imposing download overage fees to its customers, while also not living up to their service contract requirements. Each time, xfinity customer support would waste my time and have me unnecessarily restart my modem and check signal levels when my issues were caused by known maintenance. I've also recieved typical guidance from xfinity where they insinuate the issue is with my cable modem, my internal wireless router, or a defective splitter/cable in my home. All of these reasons for the "issues" conveniently place blame on the customer regarding an obvious xfinity service issue. I remember 3 years ago when this same type of issue occured in my local node/area the xfinity service technician said that these ingress signal issues were actually being caused by one neighbor's noisy line/device. Once that line & device was replaced & the appropriate coax terminator cap/filters were put in place on the pedestal very long standing xfinity service/speed issues were finally resolved. Hopefully, other xfinity customers read this post so they can be properly informed on all of the potential issues that could be impacting their service issues. Xfinity please do not overprescribe service to areas/nodes that can't consistently provide at least 80% of the bandwidth and service availability requirements. Instead, fix the underlying network connectivity issues or proactively give credits as you work on problems. Also, a long standing issue/problem shouldnt be considered fixed if it happens again within 48 hrs of the same issue being supposedly resolved. Truly fixing an outage requires proper identification of the underlying issue or problem that is causing it to occurr (aka proper RCA)... Otherwise, the fix is just a "band-aid" & not the appropriate solution to the root cause of the problem.

We went ahead and credited for the service outages you encountered this week due to the storms. 

 

As a courtesy, we  have also credited back any late charges and reactivation fees incurred over the past months.  I hope that helps. Thanks for your patience and hang in there.

Good Evening, 

 

I am writing because I had outages for 4 straight days durring the winter storm in Houston TX. I was wondering if I could get a credit for that. It was from Monday February 15th to Thursday February 18th. It would be really helpful seeing as this was and still is a hectic time for us. 

 

Thank you for your time,

Sandra
