Comcast Still Doesn’t Have it Right

This article was written by in Internet. 4 comments.

The Comcast Cable Internet saga continues. First I tried to take advantage of a free 50% speed upgrade and found out I had to buy a new modem. Then I realized I was actually getting an upgrade that more than doubled my download transfer speed for the same price.

Now I’ve received the bill. I expected they’d screw something up, and they didn’t let me down. I’m actually being charged $16 less for internet access now ($30 rather than $46). Combined with my $16 basic cable, I’m saving a good amount of money compared to when I was paying $46 for internet and $70 for television.

Thank you, Comcast!
