I have had nothing but trouble from Comcast. When we first signed up my 84 year old mother was only charged $20 a month for her phone service which was great! I had to add internet for a few months to use a canary to see how she was getting around in her apartment. They signed us up for another contract without telling us and then when I took the internet off her phone bill was $60 a month! She is on a fixed income and cannot afford this phone bill. After calling and talking with several people no one would reduce her payment back to the original $20. I found a wireless router through straight talk and you can still use your home phone and it is only $15 a month. If you have any other sources to use please use someone else besides Comcast. They would not even import her phone number over and we had to change her phone number!!
Last night, 5/31/2018 my wife recorded the NBA Playoff 1st game of the series because I work third shift. When I got home this morning. The game was taken from my DVR Comcast/Xfinity list. DELETED!!!!!! I am so pissed because that is one reason that we purchased this option! This is not the first time. There has college and NFL football games. There has been college and NBA games and other programs. Comcast acts as they are GOD by with the simple thing as a click of a button they can make that decision and it's wrong. Just plain wrong!!! STOP IT!!!! Again, that's what we pay for. We don't want and shouldn't have to watch a rerun or replay! Whatever you choose to call it.
Don't throw out your landline if you get this - the service is unpredictable on netTALK sometimes it works most of the time when really need it it doesn't without having to do a bunch of plugging and unplugging of the duo device. I have come to count on it not working when I need it so always restart device. Another annoying issue is that it cuts off calls after 10 or 15 minutes which is aggravating if you are on hold in a queue. Don't bother with support they waste your time telling you the same stuff - certain ports need to be opened, which I had opened after the first call to them. If you do feel the urge to live on the edge and purchase this service in Canada note that for the basic 1 year subscription the advertised $49.95 does not include just over $11 in additional fees and this is in US dollars so by the time you are finished at current exchange rates you are looking at over $80 Canadian.
The old saying "you GET what you pay for" is a clear indication of THIS company's pathetic track record in providing both an inferior product and a very distressing support (for the lack of a better word)! The company initially had a promising future, but with the worst customer service, lack of any sensible documentation, no phone support and problematic services, I don't see how this company still operates! Stay FAR from this company.
