Nine Reasons I Hate Comcast

Frustrated by Comcast? I’m sure I’m not the only one. In fact, I know I’m not.

I found this buzz the other day by one user who says “Oh god, I hate Comcast. I haven’t yet even signed up with them again, and I already hate them.”

After browsing through, he comes to several conclusions as to why he hates Comcast.

The big idea? Comcast bill price differences resulting in bill variance!

When will Comcast realize we all know they charge different prices to different customers. Even some of his responders point this out.

His reasons:

* Various parts of the site describe the same option with different specs. For instance, one page says “Performance with PowerBoost” is 12Mbps down while another says it’s 15Mbps down.

* But I have a paper brochure here that says the non-cable-customer pricing for speed half of what we currently get with AT&T is $58 / month. We currently pay $40 for twice the bandwidth with AT&T.

* Comcast basic cable in the bay area is identical to what you can get with an antenna, plus the Discovery Channel. Since it costs $16.80 / month, you are therefore basically paying $16.80 each month for Discovery Channel.

* They have special 6-month teaser rates with the actual copasetic pricing listed in a tiiiiiiny little font. They do do full pricing disclosure right on the page, but you can tell they only do it because the regulators are forcing them.
