Advertisements I dropped off my Xfinity cable boxes on Sunday morning but the happiness only lasted until I tried to use my phone and it didn't work. I'll spare you all the fluff on that...typical Comcast nonsense. I pulled them up on chat to report my phone down and it launched a chat that lasted through 11 representatives and 32 ¾ hours (with a break of 6 hours in between to work). Instead of returning the cost of my service to $70.43 per month for 100 Mbps, unlimited voice, Connect app with voice2go (text & talk..."Sim card simulator") as it was prior to adding trial TV they dropped did the following: Old speed......... 100 Mbps New speed......... 25 Mbps Old phone.... fully featured New phone....... incoming and local out only Connect gone Text gone Voice 2 go gone Old cost including tax... $ 70.43 New cost including tax...$134.94 REASON:. "you HAVE to have our new Xfinity Streaming service which doesn't require a STB" and "there are fees mandated by our government to bring broadcasting to your home that we are required to collect". I was like a broken record telling them "I want internet and phone, please", "I want just internet and phone, please", "please sign me up for your internet and phone please" and variations. I'd post whole chat but they deleted it when I mentioned that I was contacting the FCC. It went on from 6:00 pm Sunday until 2:45 am this morning with a 6 hour break to go to work. That's 32 ¾ hours (and yes, if you've not noticed I CAN talk/chat that long). They refuse to provide internet without streaming. That company is just nuts but I doubt I need to tell anyone that. I'll miss the Xfinity hotspots a lot BUT fact is since Xfinity started selling cellular service they've not worked. So.....WOW! at 500 (max...can only guarantee 80 - 100 right now) Mbps, unlimited phone and DOCSIS 3.1 Gateway, inside wire maintenance, taxes, etc., is $76.49 for 24 months and gets installed Thursday morning at 8:00 am. Oh... phones will go into outlets, not creepy telephony on the living room floor set up. The ARE charging $25 to install to the wall outlets instead of on the gateway.
