xfinity.com/equipmentupdate website NOT working

Received a letter from xfinity stating,

"Update your modem for faster Internet.  It's on us."

 

When I called to get the replacement "on us" I was told it would cost $14.99 for a service fee.  On us costs $15?

Is that a shipping fee?

Hi JimEeE -- I can help get a modem shipped out to you. I can do this without having any shipping cost. Please send me a PM with your name, full service address, and either phone number or account number for authentication. I'll get an order placed for you with this information.

Is the letter I received legitiment.?  Is Xfinity really offering to replace my older modem with a newer update--expenses on Xfinity?  If so how do I proceed?

donnaodean448 -- The letter you received is legitimate. You would have received it as your modem was identified as being End of Life. The letter will have instructions for contacting us to send you a new one. We can fulfill that here as well. Please send myself or Shane a PM with your name, full service address, and either phone number or account number and we'll get an order processed for you.

wisdom1234 -- I am not showing any issues with the site. There would not be an associated fee to do this swap as we ship you a new one.

Re: xfinity.com/equipmentupdate charge for modem?

xfinity says "on us." When I called, I was told that, well, there IS a shipping charge ($15 or so), but when I challenged that, I was told that it could be waived. So be sure to ask--more than once if necessary. If they think you're going to say no and hang up, they will quickly make the shipping charge disappear.

Hey Zach the update equipment site still seems to be down. I can't seem to be able to private message you either. Can you message me so I can file a task towards getting a new modem, thanks.
