There are several cable internet providers out there and customer reviews vary. One downside noted that not all of the services mentioned above are available in all areas although Comcast does compete in many markets.
Comcast High Speed Internet – While Comcast’s cable services have been very successful and popular in many markets, the company has received a great deal of negative press regarding their bandwidth caps.
Customer Service and Support – It has been noted that customers particularly complain about bad experiences with the call centers. Comcast also has below average ratings in customer service, reliability and support. Another complaint was that customers were not allowed to sign up in person at their many service centers. With so much emphasis being on online resource support, chances are you will never interact with an actual customer service representative.
Rate Increases – You may have one promotional price when signing but after the first twelve months the price increases into a two year contract. You can get a no term agreement but the price will be much higher and a deposit is required for equipment. If you prefer a non-contract agreement and don’t like price hikes, then Comcast may not be for you.
So there, you have it. Although there are several cable providers out there Comcast has a lot to offer. If you were to relocate, the transfer would be easy because Comcast operates in many markets. Not to mention, they have a wide variety of TV packages to chose from. Comcast XFINITY is definitely worth checking out.
