Significant increase to Internet bill in 2024

In February of 2024 my Internet only bill went from 76.00 a month to 95.00 a month.  This is a significant increase with no explanation.   I believe I'm on the lowest speed plan now.  It's impossible to get anyone to chat with on the AI chat.  How can I speak/chat with a real person about this?  If I can't get this resolved I will need to switch to TMobile or one of the other providers in my area.

Thank you Paula!  I was able to connect with someone on the DM chat per your instructions and they were able to set me up with a new contract at a lower rate.  It is in process now.

I have the same issue.  The Xfinity Assistant says that I was notified last month? How was I notified? I don't get a paper bill! I can't reach anyone either and the voice system is not user friendly.  I want my bill to be the same $76 that I budgetd for.

From my experience it can either be that your account has fallen off your promotional rate or it is due to price increases that you would find mentioned on your November or December billing statement. You can always get a break down of charges by looking at your billing statement. For the Xfinity app after signing in you would go to manage billing. After that click on current statement so that you can view the PDF. To view previous statements you would select statement history. If you don't already have the Xfinity app make sure you download it. It is honestly one of the best apps we have to offer to manage your account. The app will keep you updated on maintenance, interruptions, and other service-related notices. You can also troubleshoot, manage appointments, and manage your bill. 

 

If due to increases in our rates, while we try to hold down costs, price changes are necessary for a number of reasons, including continually increasing costs of programming and our ongoing investments in network upgrades, cutting edge technologies, and enhanced products and services. If you signed up on a promotional offer, you will not see an increase to the base price of those services until your promotional period has ended. Equipment charges, installation charges, taxes and fees, including regulatory recovery fees, the Broadcast TV Fee, the Regional Sports Network Fee, and other applicable charges are subject to change and could alter the total amount you pay during and after the promotional period. https://www.xfinity.com/pricechange

 

I am here to confirm what is going on. I would be happy to review the account for a new discount. Here is a link: https://www.xfinity.com/learn/offers with our current promotions if you wanted to take a look. Just make sure you are logged on to your account to see the promotions available for your account.  You can also set up the services directly from the website. 

 

Please send me a Direct Message with your name and service address so that I can fully dive into this for you! I will leave you instructions on how to initiate the message with us! I look forward to working with you soon!

Xfinity billing is predatory...intentionally. They did the same thing with my internet. Randomly overcharged. I reported to AG and they issued a refund. Then they added a late fee. 37 attempts to correct and their customer service leadership has done nothing. It's illegal.

Hi, @user_ac6ca8 

Thank you for reaching out. Once your promotion ends, you will see your rate roll into non-promotional pricing. These details are included in your customer approval and customer agreement. Additionally, we also alert all customers on their bill of any upcoming changes regarding pricing and promotion. Do you know if you were on an active promotion? Have you reviewed you previous bills for any alerts regarding the changes?

Same thing happened to me. I notified Xfinity immediately and asked them to correct. They did not and added a late fee on top of the incorrect charges. I asked them to remove that and nothing. Two weeks requesting correction and credit and no response from anyone, including Tom [Edit: Personal Information].

Yes I hear you on that one xfinity is way out of control they're forcing people to leave them for a better more reasonable company that answers phone calls and will help you out and isn't just backstabbing you every time you turn around they've taken all my good channels away from me I really liked H and I and it's gone now we can't watch the Mariners because root is gone and now they want to up the mobile phone bill significantly I can't believe I've had them 20 years and finally just can't take it anymore had to get rid of my landline and all my good channels after they got rid of H and I on me because I paid extra to get that some years ago they just take it away with no warning and give you no discount very bad business practice. I wish we had some more options like spectrum my brother has them down in California and they're a lot cheaper and more reasonable. Xfinity has a monopoly going right now so they're just going for the throat to get every dime they can out of everybody because I think they know they're going down. [Edited: "personal information"]

I’m in the same boat in Minnesota, but now there’s too many other service providers to finally cut the cord to Xfinity. After this latest stunt by Comcast Xfinity it’s time to go bye-bye.

Here’s a list of services I have that pretty offer same or better programming. If you have HBO/Max and others you can just skip the middleman (xfinity) and go straight to the app source.

I have Hulu & Netflix - Free with Tmobile

I have Paramount + Free with Walmart + 

Peacock - Free with a service 

Amazon - Free with Amazon membership

Startz App - $45 12 months (Mins you Xfiity took this away from my package)

Fandango App, Crackle App, Vudo App and Tubi - Free with lots of great movies and shows. They even cycle through movies faster which is more convenient .

That sounds like a promo expiring. Although they do keep going up on their prices. I signed up for 600Mbps like 4 years ago. They gave me a promo for the first 2 years. Then gave me another promo I didn't ask for after that for another year. Then it was a promo for a reduced price for renting the modem. Then because of plans being made obsolete they bumped me from 600Mbps to 1000. Again, I didn't ask for any of it, they just do whatever they want. Although I have been looking at Frontier because they are offering the same speeds up and down for half the price. Plus T-Mobile is offering home Internet with the same prices without data caps. Xfinity isn't the only game in town anymore. They need to step it up for existing customers. I'm just an Internet customer and I'm charged $131 a month.

@user_p52ys2​ Right here with you. This is ridiculous. I'm JUST an internet customer, and they keep telling me "the increase is due to a promotion ending" but that promotion ended over a year ago.  I was on no other promotion.  My bill went from $80, to $106, and now $132.  Its JUST internet. Nothing else. The bigger issue is I have no alternatives for modest internet in my area, and they KNOW that, because they were the ones that used the legal system to STOP someone from putting in Fiber Optics in my area.

Well it’s really time to EXIT this service after 20 years of service stated at $99 for Cable, Internet and Phone.  Just received a notice my bill will go up to $305 with $76 of that being labeled as Fees. Nope no thank you. For Years of channels and services were taken away no longer part of the service but bill continues to skyrocket. What sense does that make. This latest increase has me KNOWING enough is enough! DONE! There’s way too many free channels and lower priced service available to the average person. 

I have Hulu & Netflix - Free with Tmobile

I have Paramount + Free with Walmart + 

Peacock - Free with a service 

Amazon - Free with Amazon membership

Startz App - $45 12 months (Mins you Xfiity took this away from my package)

Fandango App, Crackle App, Vudo App and Tubi - Free with lots of great movies and shows. They even cycle through movies faster which is more convenient .

Now ask yourself why in the heck does anyone still pay for cable TV, friends and family have been asking me this question for years, I thought longevity meant something to this company but I was wrong. 😑
