Anyone else read this yet? Basically it comes down to a guy only getting a refund for b***s*** charges on his bill because he recorded the first phone call. Worth the read:

Well, I see that Comcast are as big a bunch of thieves as Time Warner Cable. Won't it be so exciting when they merge...?
I haven't had cable for over a year. And with the internet options available these days, it is happily going to stay that way.
This guy will be recording all future calls with Comcast, thank you very much.
I just use them for internet, personally. Sadly, I live in a rural area that leaves me very few options, so I'm stuck with them.
The same as myself. Watch as they increase your price and tell you "we didn't increase the price. Instead your promotion has expired". They then give you some nonsense about how as a current customer they value you and they try to spin it that it's out of loyalty that they raised the price.
All cable companies offer a "new customer" promotional rate ... usually after 12 months the rate goes to a step-promotional where it is between "new" and "full retail" .... this is no secret and I often wonder how people try and justify that they forget these things??? Comcast, Time Warner, Direct TV, Dish ... they all do it. I'm employed in this industry and know all the ins and outs when it comes to cable, internet and phone ... you have to play the game, and you have to play it better than them. Get over it
Check out your phone company's website and see if they have DSL. I understand the rural issue, but maybe you will get lucky.
I'm on my second year of DSL. It has served me well, including the streaming movies I watch all the time.
In my case, no dice. I don't have active phone lines in my place, so I'm pretty stuck.
I keep forgetting I'm the only person on the planet that still has a landline.
Para....Not the ONLY one on the planet.......I will never part with my land line....even when they cut down all lines! I will keep my phones in every room just to look at them!
No--four. I'll always have a landline as well.
Oh, wait...crud..our phone service is also with Crumbcast! Dangit!
(Tried Dish in the past--they were worse!)
We have their 'triple play,' phone, internet and TV...hubby just had to have the fastest internet, and as he is disabled, just had to have cable TV....and the phone company's "U-Verse" is not available in our area... but, at any rate, our phone bill is way less than it was with the phone company.
We also found that by playing the disabled senior citizen card, we can get them to re-instate the lower rate every time they try to jack it up.
Have you looked at AT&T? I had Comcast Internet, and problems, so I researched and I switched to a non-cable Internet server. I have few problems now.
Sadly, they don't cover way out where I'm at for cable internet.

For the past 5 or 6 hours I have been dealing with some fraud and identity theft that I discovered and I'm now really weary of my online security; I hope some HP "techies" can help... I use the Windows 7 built-in firewall and I use the free version of Avast for antivirus. ...

I'm sure everyone has gotten cable before. I'm sure everyone has faced a cable technician running late. Here's an interesting article about this truly disgusting enterprise. It is also funny that I can relate to this on a pretty understandable level in regards to my dispatching cable job....

I got my water bill for the year the other day....$118.78. For the entire year.That is less than one month of basic cable and internet. One month.Could it be because the head of Comcast makes so much money? That's what business is all about: making money.And people actually want business to take...
