Frustrated by billing for service

I don't know why Xfinity can't get it's act together. We had an issue with our internet connection being slow. I contacted support, they ran a bunch of tests and said they needed to send somebody out. I wanted to be sure that I wasn't going to have a charge and they said I wouldn't be charged. 

 

Then I found out from a neighbor in our condo building that they also had an issue and that their service was coming out a day sooner than mine. I contacted Xfinity and said, "shouldn't we wait, just in case they fix the issue."  They said to keep the appointment and assured me again I would not be charged.

 

It turns out that there was an issue with the way the service was working the building that was addressed by switching out some equipment. A service tech still showed up, he was really nice and give me a tip about configuring the Xfinity modem to send the full signal to my wifi router and when I did it gave me a significantly stronger signal than when I used the Xfinity router for the wifi.

 

So sure enough, I was charged $70 on my next bill. I contacted support and when through all the drill so that they promised I would get a credit on my next bill.  I did not get a credit on my next bill. So I contact them again and get a response saying they could see the error and would post the credit within 48 hours.  I just checked and I got a credit for $35, not the $70.

 

I wish I could chare Xfinity by the hour for the time it takes to fix their errors.
