was told $60 installation fee would be waived

I ordered a self install kit when I started service last week.I was not able to activate my service after calling multiple times with CSR's and first representative informed me that my modem was faulty and asked me to buy one from xfinity or outside,then I brought one from best buy and 2nd attempt also none of the walls has no signals and then representative realized that no signal to walls and scheculed Tech appointment and informed over phone that "they will waive the installation  charges if the problem with signal or they will charge me if the device is faulty".
Tech told me that no connection to home and connected now.I still got charged $60 for installation and when i called customer service line and they managed to waive $20 for next month bill.

Even when i asked to connect their supervisor to talk about my issue they said all are busy and will get a call from supervisor
within 24 - 48 hrs,but never received a call.Also,asked them to check the call record what they promosied me before I accept their terms.All they say is " I do understand your problem and sorry for miss information provided by CSR"

I don't want to be charged for even single penny when I was told they will waive if the device is not faulty.But CSR line not considering what they informed to me before I accept their terms over the phone.

If the issue not resolved then I am planning to cancel my service within 30 days,will they still charge the installation fees?

The exact same thing happened to me! Bait and switch. I asked for the $60 fee to be waived. He went back to his manager and got it approved. Dishonest. Terrible. Now, they won't credit was a "valid charge". Same excuse. Awful.
