I was surprised to run across a support document stating that in mid-2016, Comcast started allowing people to keep their Comcast.net primary and secondary email accounts active even after discontinuing Xfinity internet service (as long as certain very-reasonable email-account usage-frequency requirements are met). While I'm definitely not planning on terminating service any time soon, I was pleased to learn this.
My question: Was this change made as a result of a government law or regulation? If so I am concerned about whether the policy will continue, because the Trump administration has been systematically eliminating/weakening regulations intended for consumer protection, especially those implemented by the Obama administration. (One recent high-profile example is the elimination of net neutrality.) Of course, if the email-account-retention *was* strictly Comcast's (laudable) decision rather than government-mandated, I assume Comcast could be free to reverse it at any time.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just a Comcast decision.
