comcast......wages war on victims who want discounts

Are you a Comcast customer who always calls to get a new deal when your Comcast bill goes up? Sadly, the days of threatening to cancel as a tactic to get a better rate may be coming to an end.

Cord Cutters News has talked with Comcast employees and has learned that Comcast is removing the ability for call center agents to give discounts to current customers whose promotional rates have ended. Comcast is training employees about new limitations coming in 2020 to their ability to give discounts to existing customers.

This new plan called Comcast Vision 2020 severely limits what deals phone agents and store representatives can offer for TV packages. Customers who want to get a discount will now need to sign up for a Comcast wireless phone plan or home security if they want to get a discount on TV.

Comcast will also be shaking up some of their packages with two new TV packages launching. These packages will drop some channels but still cost about the same as the current packages. From the sounds of it, at some point in 2020 as part of the Comcast Vision 2020, Comcast will make their TV packages less attractive to new subscribers by offering less but charging the same amount.

Look for these changes to start to roll out sometime after the new year. The first thing you will likely notice is phone agents will be limited in what they can do. From there it’s likely new customers will find updated packages that are not nearly as attractive as the old packages

More people will cancel

I did this with DirecTV for years and always worked...for the first time last year they wouldnt budge. So....they no longer have a customer. I'd imagine others will do the same.

the past for years alot of companies that have monopoly's do that

only way to get the rate to advertise on tv is to cancel for 30 days

then come back

at&T are losing customers by the boat loads especially with Direct TV

wireless and regular phone service is keeping them afloat

The government truly fu*ked us. Never should've let this deal happen. If this isn't a monopoly I don't know what is. What's my second option? Rabbit ears?

I have my own router for the last 3 years. It payed for itself after 8 months. I also stopped using their tv boxes 2 years ago. I've been streaming everything on smart TVs. And this year I switched to YouTube tv. I haven't payed more than $120 in over 3 years.

Yea I used to do installs for them..

basically what they do is give you the price of a bundle that's price lower than your bill, or that has more features than what you currently have for less or at the same rate, without mentioning taxes and equipment rental fees

so in reality, the new bundle they're offering may be $30 cheaper than what your OVERALL bill is right now, but once the $12 per box kicks in, along with taxes, so say another $20ish, and other bullsh*t fees, so another $15-$30ish, you're well over the current bundle price you have..

you only need the internet. I pay $65 per month 200mbps down 100mbps up. switching to century link in Feb to 1Gbps for the same price both included taxes and no modem rental fee. I own my own modem and CL will not charge you for the modem in my area
