What is ultra annoying is ever since they gave me that modem...when the phone rings, we lose internet. Ive called about 7 times and they send a signal with no results. We thought out TV broke..PAID for someone to come out and it was THE CABLE!! Now I need modem and boxes replaced. I feel like surrendering to Comcast. So tired of calling and fighting!
Terrible service. they keep transferring me from one support person to another, making me repeat my account phone number (same one that i am calling from - which they can see on their screen, 30 minutes later (after consulting a supervisor) still not able to customize the name of my home network or the password (provided by Xfinity is factory set to 16 digits with caps interspersed!). unfortunatley no other choice available in my area of Fl!!
ESPN breaks up during every game but the F-ing commercials run without any problem. Comcast POS equipment can't keep up with the feed. What GARBAGE!!!!
Check your bills cause I didn't for past 2-3 years and realized that comcast was charging me for modem rental which I owned. Called several times and but reps can only go back 6 months. They transferred me to billing department and guess what? They have to get their supervisor and have to call me back. Billing has been fixed but I'm still waiting for a call from the supervisor to refund me for about 2 years worth of modem rental.
That's not all of it. I get a mail stating " As a valued XFINITY customer, you are eligible for this great deal. Upgrade now to enjoy TV and internet together like never before with the X1 Entertainement Operating System........Xfinity internet and TV for just $89.99 per month for 2 years .....
So I called to find out that the offer is for new install only? I read the letter to him and still the guy says it's for new customers only. Of course I asked about my credit after that and my call was dropped.
I really wish I had another choice... I thought monopoly was illegal in USA but I guess that doesn't apply for cable companies...
I have a web site associated with my business. It's a dull condo association web site. I also have email through those servers. I have full interent access, but comcast has abertillery blocked access to those servers. I've made the usual customer support calls (3 so far). I expect it'll probably be somewhere around 7 to 10 by the time I give up. The calls are the standard, "Sir, what web browser are you using?" (I already know where this is going. They're going to put the problem on my computer.) I answer, "Well I use Chrome on my Windows machine, but I've also tried Explorer. Then I've tried to access it on the Apple laptop. Oh, and I can't get to it on the Linux box either." That pretty much shuts-down the "Is it plugged in? Is it turned on?" nonsense questions. Then, of course, I have to reboot the cable modem. And I've checked the configuration on and rebooted the Apple airport. Never mind the fact that I can ping and access every computer on the internet. I've can get to Google, Comcast, Youtube, but not my business web site. I can also access my email accounts and the web sites through Verizon and my Web service provider claims that there's no problems. My friend can get to the website from his workplace. AAAARG! And the worst part is Comcast technical service can't see if they can get to the web site form where they're at. They can't ping or do a traceroute. Technical support is sorely lacking technical knowledge. Someone at Comcast has shut-down access to those servers by putting the IP addresses on a router blacklist. I'd like to know why, but I can't get though to anyone who has enough knowledge or even access to basic tools to troubleshoot this problem. Is Comcast trying to put me out of business? What is wrong with them?
I do not watch your news anymore. I have had enough of your comercials that are pounded down my throat. Your email is just as bad. If this keeps up your going to be dumped.
These fora are the only Comcast page I ever see. No reason to go to the main page, for reasons you noted. I prefer to download my email to my machine with an email client (I like Thunderbird). Pay the bill using my bank's bill pay page (Comcast's is horrible). Wish Comcast would do better.
OMGOSH!!!!! WHY DO I-WE WASTE MY-OUR TIME!!!!!
THERE IS A FIREWALL HERE FOR COMPLAINTS LIKE OURS/ IT'S CALLED THE WASTE BASKET!!!
REDUNDANCY IS THE NAME OF THIS GAME!
