charged $70 to fix cable cut outside my newly moved house.


   After moving my service to new apartment  internet connection was not working with the coaxial connectivty inside the unit.  After calling xfinity customer care , they had sent technican . 


 He tested with his equipments and it was not working , finally figured out that cable was cut from outside the building and not reaching the apartment unit. After fixing  xfinity charged me 70$.


 Just need to know am i responsible for the cable cut that had happned outside my building ?

Can anyone from xfinity respond to this  ?


  Called customer care many times no one has answer for this. They made my call to move back and forth between billing and technical departments.


 Whenever we buy xfinity service , they should ensure that service is reaching the unit.  Setting up that service inside unit is our responsibility .
