Can I remove hard inquiries?

Hello,


I am a grad student who just moved to Seattle about a year ago, and who is also new to the whole credit thing. I set up my internet when I moved out here in August 2017. I recently checked my Equifax report and I have three hard inquiries from Comcast all within the month of August 2017 (the 9th, 26th, and 29th). I knew that I would have one, but I'm not sure why I have three! My Equifax score is the lowest of all three of my scores due to this issue, and I'm really trying to build credit as I'm racking up more student loans. Is there any way I can remove two of them? It seems that setting up an account justifies only one hard inquiry on my account, and not three. 

 

Please let me know what I need to do to get this process started.

This is primarily customer to customer interaction, but I thought someone would have got this by now. You can contact the 1800 Xfinity main number, and have an escalation submitted for looking in to credit inquiries. May be quicker than waiting on here.
