Early Termination Fees (ETF)


If you are under a contract and you need to cancel service, you may be subject to an early termination fee (ETF).


  • If you move to a Comcast serviceable area, and transfer service, you are not charged.
  • If you move to a Comcast serviceable area, and do not sign up for service, then the ETF would apply.
  • If you move to a non-Comcast serviceable area, then the ETF does apply.
  • If it is an active duty military deployment, then the ETF will be waived when you send documentation.
  • If the account holder is deceased, the ETF will be waived upon receiving a death certificate or obituary.
  • If you downgrade service, then the ETF will not apply.
  • If you have a Double/Triple Play and remove all but one service, then the ETF will not apply.
