Charge to check/upgrade Comcast's Lines?!!!!!!

I want to upgrade to the "GIG" speed internet service.  I was told that in order to do that a technician would have to be dispatched to install the modem (something I can easily do) and to verify the comcast lines at the apartments can handle the increased speed.  That's fine....but you want to charge me a $60 fee for this?  Why on God's green Earth would I pay a company to check and/or upgrade their own equipment?  I have been a customer for a couple of years now and have NEVER been late, paying an average of $150/month.
