How do I SIGNIFICANTLY lower my comcast bill?

I am a senior citizen, retired and on a fixed income.  

I cannot afford to pay $175 per month for TV and Internet (I have triple pay but don't use the phone),


I'm told that if I drop the phone service, my monthly bill will go UP!!

For present services, they will drop the bill (exclusive of taxes, rental fees etc, from 119.99 a month to 109.99 a month...that is the best they can do.  


I've played the game before and Comcast did a miniscule drop ($5 for one monty) then subesequently raised it by $15 !!!!



Competition doesn't bother them.....It better.


Customer DIS-service won't recognize the TV offer of $79.99 for triple play...I can't get around from using thier modem because they have quite suddenly made it impossible to use OTHER modems....I've gone thru three router/modems already....They disable them and make it near impossible to bring them back.

You have discovered Comcast's dirty secret... they dont want you to have a lower bill.  Their job is to make sure you overpay and keep overpaying for services you dont need or use.

Re: How do I SIGNIFICANTLY lower my comcast bill?

we are having the same problem

my wife and i can not afford to pay $160+ a month on cable and internet.

as senior citizens we have to consider if we can still have this bill anymore.

I called today becuase my bill was going up to about $200 and all they could do was bring it down to about $160. THEY say that is all they can do. But we can not afford these prices.

why doesn;t comcast have programs for senior citizens and not just intro programs that just go up later once they have you.

there are not a lot of choices - this is not fair!


can someone please help us and call us and work on a better plan for senior citizens!

I'm in the same boat.  Single.  Live alone.  My Internet promo ended and now I'm being asked to pay double for Internet.  I called Comcast and was quoted a new promo rate of $46 a month.  My bill was nearly double that when I received it so I called Comcast back when I thought this was all taken care of.  I was told that no such promo existed and that it had not been applied to my account.  I asked the Customer Service person several times when I called originally to make sure that was truly going to be the rate.  She even asked me to hold on a moment so she could see if there was any better promos and then told me that $46 was the best that could be done.  So, now I guess I will have no Internet or TV.  I have one laptop I rarely use and I strem TV through Netflix.  I can't afford nearly $90 a month for Internet.

Hi dreamer07, I see that you were repackaged, do you still need assistance?
