Customers complain that Comcast bills them for services and fees that they didn’t agree to.
Recently, Comcast settled a $15 million dollar class-action lawsuit over set-top box rental fees. Comcast would not support purchased set-top boxes, so customers were forced to rent them from Comcast directly if they had premium service. You can read more about this and other Comcast lawsuits here.
“I was misled by Comcast regarding ‘temporary’ rates, and have been charge a 300% increase for several months.”
Frustrated customers say that they were given one price when they sign up for a new promotion but are charged something different when they review their bill. Other customers say that they were told the wrong information when they signed up. They don’t get the television stations they want or internet speeds are lower than what they were told. Customers also complain that they have additional channels or services tacked onto their bill that they weren’t told about.
