Price increase...again!

Price increase...again!

A few months ago there was a $20.00 increase on my bill. Had a brief online chat with a Comcast CSR who said that was because the Preferred XL Double Play Package price deal had expired. How 2 years can fly by, right.

This month, the bill went up again by $3.00, making it now a total of $163.01.Totally non-competitive with what AT&T is offering using bundled satellite TV service and their fiber optic network for high-speed Internet, that they claim can deliver 75 mbps download speed consistantly. I am planning on cancelling my service,TV and Internet, in February. I don't even have HD service nor a DVR. I have one box, the free one that has On Demand and two smaller digital converter boxes, along with the Comcast modem/router.

I did have Performance Internet (at 25 mbps at the time), then it was changed to BLAST Internet as part of a new so-called package deal, which has had two "free" speed boosts, first to 75 mbps and just recently to100 mbps, However the leased Comcast modem/router is unable to deliver anywhere near those speeds and I basically use a laptop, move around the house a lot, and seldom my tablet PC or on occasion, my smartphone, but that is using the Comcast wireless hotspots. Ethernet connection, which can/does deliver the claimed latest speed boost, is hence no benefit at all, since I don't plan on purchasing a desktop computer anytime soon.
