Jason has a good story, take a moment
Hi, I think this may be worthy of adding to your blog. Thank you for doing this!
It is good to communicate with like-minded people who have been getting shafted by Comcast’s evil business practices. The sad part is that their technology is good. Their Engineers are probably even good people.
But their business practices are so bad that I refuse to be Comcast customer any longer. When you don’t want to pay for the fastest data available because a company's leadership is swine that really makes a statement, doesn't it? It *is* time for the government to step in, their business practices are simply CRIMINAL. What a shame that an organization with good technical people is being destroyed by malicious marketing and (I think illegal) business practices.
I would like to listen in on one of their strategic meetings where they discuss how they are going to fleece the public. It would go something like this:
"We are already raking in millions of dollars by over charging customers, how can we make even more money ?"
"Let’s force the general public to pay for our voice over IP service by forcing them to upgrade their cable modems and then brake their ability to use their own routers! Then, when they call us to say their internet does not work we will ADD triple play to their service WITHOUT PERMISSION, and send them our own cable modem and router. So now the customer will pay more money for a service they don't want, AND we have infinite revenue because we are forcing the customer to 'rent' our equipment. What is the return on investment for that? Oh, the rent will pay off the equipment in a few months and the customer will be left with that extra monthly cost forever!"
"You know the best part of that? There was nothing wrong with the equipment we forced the customer to dispose! Haahaa! What idiots these ‘customers’ are."
"Great idea, but why should we stop here? Next, we should force the customer to purchase more, ahhhh, what shall we call it…. 'quadruple play!' We will force them to add security to their home, otherwise we won't offer them data any more. Or we could break their TV service until they pay for all the service we want to shove down their throat. Remember when television was free because it was broadcast over the air? And the broadcasters still made money due to advertisements? LOL we are making all that money and then some."
“Great ideas, everyone! How else can we screw over our customers? Providing terrible out-of-country customer service over the phone and unprofessional installation service!”
Fuck you, Comcast.
