LOL now effective 12/20 Broadcast TV Fee will be $7.00 monthly (40% increase), Regional Sports Fee will be $3.50 monthly (17% increase), so now the "advertised price" is $10.50 more FOR NOTHING DIFFERENT IN SERVICE and NO way to avoid the "fees" (translation: cost of service).
I stopped coming to this board when I was chased off once before for speaking the truth, and probably won't come back again, but look what XFINITY is doing to us. Chained to a contract with prices of made-up fees "subject to change" and now they are stealing another $42 from me every year I am chained to their ridiculously biased contracts.
Sorry your costs went up, Comcast. Sorry WE HAD A CONTRACT. Sorry you can't make as much profit off of us as you wanted. But my disdain for you only grows the more you itemize out YOUR overhead costs onto us, the consumer.
What a joke.

"When the service representatives were stating you would receive a $10.00 discount for signing up for Eco-Bill and Autopay, they did not clarify that this was already represented in the $29.99 a month pricing that was offered to you. The standard pricing for this promotion for Performance Internet is $39.99 a month."
Explain to me again how this is not a billing fee.
You advertise the $29.99.
You advertise the $10.00 discount.
Then you say if you don't have the discount it's $39.99.
It's the false advertising bait-and-switch that Comcast does so well.

"The Broadcast TV Fee will increase periodically to defray a portion of the real increases in the cost of retransmission imposed by broadcasters. Our competitors such as AT&T U-verse, Charter, Cox, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS and WOW also charge this type of fee. If you have any more questions or concerns please reach back out."
Not true. I recently moved and unfortunately no longer can get FiOS but they do not charge this fee. Claiming that they do-- and that it somehow makes it ok for Comcast to lie about their price-- is wrong. Seen you use this bad logic before, ComcastMatthew, and two wrongs don't make a right.
Someone mentioned class action, something I recently learned and am glad I did, Comcast forces everyone into arbitration agreements and conveniently exempts themselves from being sued, unless you opt out within 30 days of signing up for Comcast. WWW.COMCAST.COM/ARBITRATIONOPTOUT It's buried deep in the user agreement (line 13d) but more people need to know this.
And I couldn't agree more with the lawn mowing example. They've line item given themselves a way to change prices at any time without notice or care. Not to mention falsely advertising a price only to blame someone else for getting what they really charge (22% increase due only to junk fees) anyway.
