f*ck comcast and thier bullshit pricing

they offer zero incentive to keep current customers...they have raised thier pricing another 5 bucks and still have taken away channels...so i am telling them to downgrade me from digital to just extended cable so i get 100 channels...fucking bullshit and im tired of this crap...anyone else done with them?

AT&T (no fucking bette BTW) is burying cable now fot thier shit now right down the street...i hardly watch hbo as it is anymore...so keeping it makes no sense to me financially cause of thier crap...

the funny part is they offer digital cable but still dont offer fx in thier programming...so that would be an extra charge...lol...i mean come on...what a joke this company has become...oh well....rant off...

***EDIT*****

well oh well...i just someguy on the phone...and they just offered me my pacake that i currently have and instead of downgrading right now...they are knocking off $20 a month now...so instead of 89.00 a month and change...its now gone back to $69 and change...but his only last for 6 months...and they told me to call back in 6 months and see where i stand with thier pricing...effective today...so now i guess i gotta be ranting prick everytime...this is prolly nothing new, but last time i called and wanted to downgrade, they offered me nothing...but they must be losing customers left and right with the job market right now and want to try to keep thier funds coming in...which is a smart move in thier department...so they better keep this pricing for me for a while or else i will downgrade....

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

They pissed me off when they included Speed Channel with all the other sports BS now. I used to get it with my other channels, now I have to pay extra to get that plus the 700 other stick and ball games I don't watch.

Everyone who has Comcast should call up and say they want to cancel. Comcast will send you to someone who will ask what if we lowered your price?

There is nothing to lose in telling Comcast you want to cancel, just tell them you got a flier in the mail from the Dish. You can easily save $200 over the next year with one 25 minute, being transferred three times phone call.

I did it and am saving similar to Thunderdude above.

I know people get mad, but 90% of the time it's NOT comcast raising the price. Example: 13 yrs ago Comcast had to pay ESPN .50-58 Cents per customer (if you has ESPN, Comcast had to pay ESPN). Last I head its over 8 bucks a customer, and this is only 1 channel in this example. In some cases instead of raising everyone's prices Comcast will move a channel from a basic to a Digital line up.

oh crap...debate time...ok...here we go...

for those that dont know...comcast doesnt pay their installers by the hour....they pay them per cust hookup...so thats saving them money right there...

their bundle packages are also bullshit...the pricing is only good for a year and then the price SKYROCKETS...AT&T by law has to allow other telcom companies to be allowed to RESELL their services...so say mom and pop company get heir services at say .50 cents on the dollar...while AT&T sells it to the general public at 1.50 on the dollar...hense them dropping the prices is in no way effecting them other then their straight overhead pricing...its all bottom dollar to them...and thier services offered pricing is always expendable and able to drop...i just got finished paying 19.95 for my dsl at home...and the fuckers have raised their pricing to a standard 25 a month...its to help their bottom line...its still alot cheaper then comcast retarded shit...and i dont have to worry about getting my shit slowed down by downloading anything...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

I know for a FACT they are paid hourly. Comcast also has a new bundle that DOESN'T go up in a year like it has in the past. What are the speeds for that 25.00 a month? It's NO where near Comcast speeds.

I fucking hate cumcunts with a passion... They really did a number on me when I was deployed, and the wife was back in IL with the family. Unfortunately, in fucking 'DelaWhere?' there isn't much choice. I mean, tv yeah, there is dish and vios, but internet, there is only vios. And they are retarded expensive.

We've been doing just that ever since they were going to raise our rate from the introductory period & every time we call to cancel they just keep extending the rate

Next time you see your bill has gone up, all you need to do is call and ask them what's going on. when they say this promotional period or that has ended, just say you want to cancel service, they'll send you to that department and then tell them that you want that promtion again and almost without hesitation they will give you whatever their current promotion is. then repeat whenever needed. They'd rather give you the promotional price than lose your money altogether. It's a nusiance, but it's easy. And since they don't make you sign a contract you can always cancel whenever you want.

I've been looking into U-Verse lately. Especially with the cashback deal going on.

Right now I have DishNet and like it but thinking the U-verse might be the way to go.

What did you have before U-verse?

satogayness (satalite). They also have the package going on for U-Verse I think. The 3 deal. 30 for Basic 100, 30 for home phone, and 30 for internet. Don't quote me on that though, I remember seeing some junk mail on it and i just look it over and threw it away.

Uverse was worse for me then comcast.

I moved in September and the only cable that is available is uverse. I got direct TV installed and the guy was on time, free install, fast, and he ran some extra cables for me under the table. Cheaper than comcast, picture is the same, I have never had it go out on me, and they gave me every movie channel, the nfl sunday ticket, and nascar hotpass for free for 4 months.

Now Uverse, holy shit they are retarded.

First they set me up with two account numbers, then it took them 2 weeks just to figure out that they could setup service in my area even after I told the dumbasses that my entire subdivision is new and that the AT&T box was sitting in my backyard with a big "UVERSE" sign on it, then they sent out the people to put the box on the side of my house when I wasn't home, only to send some dumbass the next day on my scheduled appointment who said "sorry i can't help they didn't send out the right guy", then I had no shows for the next two appointments, then I got really tired of the BS and kept going up the chain until i got some guy that sent out two technicians to my house that day.

So I sat and talked with the technician. he said AT&T uverse overbooks their technicians every day in hopes that they'll be able to perform miracles or some shit. This guy was cool he was there for 4 hours and ran cat 5 cabling in my basement into my office, then ran a cable from my office to my family room so I could run the xbox to my switch. No charge for anything.

So in the end they were ok, but I just got my first bill, screwed up of course. They charged me the highest speed charge of 55 even through I signed up for the $35 6 mbps speed. I called, they fixed it, and now I'm good to go.

So in the end UVerse was ok, but it took 6 weeks to get internet and way too many phone calls and hours waiting at home. i should get it free for 6 month for all that crap I went through.

So as bad as Comcast seems, they do have some positives. comcast isn't available in my area or I would have used them for internet.

Your gonna pop a vein dood you are way to mad over eveyrthing.


I had comcast and hates those fucksticks, so we dropped them and went dish network. That was good for a while but then whenever it rained or snowed we lost signal. So we switched over to u-verse and aside from the installers being bumbling dumbasses I'm very happy with the service.

My Comcast has been out since yesterday, no TV and no internet. I am going to lose my mind. Last night I had damn rabbit ears attached to a $3k TV! WTF!
Actually looked forward to work to check my emails.

Ok, normally I don't agree with Thunderstruck's rants but this time I have to concur. My bill went up last month and I made no changes to my service. So I called Comcast and b*tched and told them I want to change to ATT, which I do.

They put me on with retention who dropped my bill by $40 a month, which is lower than it was before the change, so I'll stick with Comcast a bit longer.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

That's about how much mine went up. No promotional ends and no service changes. F*ckin' Comcast!

then i sound all sad and seem down and say i cant afford this, im soo gonna have to cancel, then they say hold on, let me see what we can do to keep you going here.. they extend my rates for 6 more months. its nice, i pay 60 a month for internet and cable with HBO (gotta watch entourage lol) and encore or whatever and 2 other movie channels i dont even ever watch.
if i could just get HBO and all the channels that csi and law and order get replayed on, them im good lol.
