New Services - HELP!!!
What a nightmare this has become. We are going on four weeks now with Xfinity trying to get new services added to our residential home. Our neighbor (who shares a driveway with us) recently switched to Xfinity and recommended we do as well. We had an install service appointment scheduled for Dec. 28th, 2021 in which the technician came out and said he could not install that day as their was no Xfinity box to connect to (nearest box is our neighbors). So he put in a work request order to have the "construction/field/engineer" team/department come out on site to run and/or trench a new wire from our neighbors box, somewhere closer to our home so that we can have Xfinity services installed. The technician stated his wire only goes 350' and that our neighbors box (per my Google takeoff and the Xfinity sales rep's calculations) is roughly 700'-750' from our home. We were told we'd receive a call within 3 days (!) from the construction team to discuss plan of attack and if there would be any sort of cost associated with this work. We were okay with that and have told Xfinity several times WE WILL PAY FOR THIS WORK IF NEED BE (even though our neighbors who live 700' off the main street and share our driveway did not pay at all for this). Since December 28th, 2021 we have ZERO contact from anyone at Xfinity, unless we call them in which we get passed around from sales rep to sales rep to tech rep with no answers and varying responses. On January 11th a tech support agent told me we would have someone from the construction team, here between 8am-10am (EST) to install the wire to our home (I'm assuming trench the wire and add a demarcation box on the side of our home for tech to hook up to eventually). It is now 11:30am now on the day of and I have heard from no one and decided to call in, in which case an agent told me there was NO ticket for this work to be done. They have NO apparent way to contact the construction team to follow up or get an update. And I apparently took off work AGAIN for no reason at all. The call ended with the tech rep today that "someone will be calling you today to go over this so keep your phone handy"... I know how this will go, I will receive no call yet again and still no services/updates. It is honestly mind blowing to me that it is this difficult to get a straight answer from someone. I have been without internet for over 3 weeks now and work full time remote. All I'm looking for is someone to come out here and either a) tell us hey, you cannot get service even if you are willing to pay and here is why or b) we can trench a wire from your neighbors house (share a driveway) to within XXX' of your home for $XXX. This should NOT be this difficult.
Ticket #: HS2642706
Technician Appt # (from tech support agent who said they'd be out here today between 8AM-10AM): 787045
Can someone with Xfinity PLEASE help us with this, it has gone far beyond ridiculous at this point.
