Comcast does not hate you.  They just covet all of your money.
 
2014-05-28 04:31:09 PM
so they are succeeding at being hated without even trying. maad skillz.
 
2014-05-28 04:52:04 PM
No, they wake up every morning trying to find new ways to make as much money as possible.  Becuase that is the only reason corporations exist.  Being hated is just a side effect.
 
2014-05-28 05:45:58 PM
Yeah not everyday....sometimes he sleeps till noon.
 
2014-05-28 05:47:01 PM
its just that we wake up everyday knowing that our customers have little to no choice on where they can buy their tv/internet/phone service and we don't have to do a damned thing to keep them.

You want to see these issues go away almost overnight ? Common Carrier their asses. They don't care because they don't have to.

I don't think that's the Comcast president.
He can afford to have someone ELSE rub his nipples for him.
 
2014-05-28 05:47:34 PM
Let them hate, so long as they fear.
 
2014-05-28 05:47:36 PM
With how the company behaves how can he possibly be surprised.
 
2014-05-28 05:48:38 PM
We ditched Comcast last week for DSL.  7 Meg private pipe, good enough to stream HD Netflix and Skype in HD.  Oh, and it was almost half the cost.
 
2014-05-28 05:50:02 PM
But they do wake up every day not giving a shiat about their workers or their customers.

In the next few years, economic experts are going to come along and lay the blame for the middle class being extinct because of shoddy decisions of large corporations.

The biggest complaint you will hear is corporations maximising profits, but refusing to reinvest said profit back into the local economy.
 
2014-05-28 05:50:26 PM
Who cares if you're hated when you own the FCC? You can cry yourself to sleep on stacks of $100 bills.
 
2014-05-28 05:51:14 PM
Neither did Jim Belushi, but here we are.
 
2014-05-28 05:51:43 PM
Well, guys if you started thinking of your customers first, your employees second, your vendors third and shareholders last you might find yourselves loved rather than hated.

These days, impatient greedy shareholders are like that couple that killed their goose that laid golden eggs.

Step 1: Buy a Mohu SkyHD antenna or Mohu Leaf.
Step 2: Cancel cable TV subscription.
Step 3: Stream shows not on broadcast.

I pay $30 a month for 15mbps internet and stream what I can't grab over the air for free. It's 100% legal and very liberating.

FTFA "...if you thought every Comcast employee went to work hoping to make your day a little bit worse, according to their CEO, this is not the case."

What an aggravatingly passive aggressive statement.

or

That's his job.

/Comcast in 10 years will be looked at the same way people in PA look at the liquor authority today. A corrupt, well connected middleman who makes everyone's life worse

If he'll wait by his computer from 8am until 12pm, and pay me for a service call, I'll be happy to provide him useful feedback on why his company is hated.

/he should understand that my billing department may accidentally overcharge him, and the service center lines have been outsourced.
 
2014-05-28 05:58:39 PM
Solution: A new "Hate" surcharge to make them feel a little better about it all.
 
2014-05-28 05:58:41 PM
I wish I had more internet options, but cancelling cable really is liberating, especially since more media than I could ever watch is available over-the-air and streaming. You're not beholden to an entertainment company, people.

When they get the okay to buy Time Warner things are only going to get better.

They don't wake up every morning WANTING to be hated. They wake up every morning NOT CARING if they are hated.

Comcast is the example of what we all fear - a private-sector business with a near-perfect vertical monopoly that lobbies hard to ensure that their customers remain captives.

Their customer service sucks because it can. Thanks to the abject greed of telecom companies that took billions from the government for infrastructure expansion & evolution (that whole "fiber to the last mile" push a decade ago we paid for with increased fees) and provided next to nothing in return, cable is typically the only broadband option available to residential and small business customers.

Their business model exploits customers because it can. Thanks to legislative changes over the last two decades, and the huge amounts of lobbyist cash Comcast is throwing about to prevent further legislative control, Comcast is pushing hard to expand a near-perfect vertical monopoly - they own not just production, but distribution and presentation, of content, end to end - by eating up another major content producer and distributor.

Their business model reinforces monopoly because it can. Time Warner owns Warner Bros., Castle Rock Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, and New Line Cinema. Those folks have huge movie libraries, which are tapped heavily by both Netflix and Amazon. Comcast realizes that cable television is dead as a business model, and realizes that they're very late to the online content market. Buying those film libraries represents a huge chunk of content control, which is the name of the game now.

In short, Netflix is killing cable, and Comcast thinks that they can, in return, kill Netflix. A tiered Internet, coupled to exorbitant content access fees for both NBCUniversal and Time Warner film libraries? Comcast's dream may well come true if the FCC can't pull its thumb out of its ass and realize that common carrier is the only way to go.

I pretty much do this, though Mohu doesn't pull in all of the local stations.  But I do have a bevy of streaming shows available.  The only reason I keep the basic cable (which I've not bothered to hook up) is because, for some reason, my bundle is a lot cheaper.  Essentially, I pay $80 for the basic cable and the internet access.  I've been told that, if I cancel the basic cable, which I don't use, the price of the internet access would go up to $110.  WTF?
 
2014-05-28 06:08:57 PM
They don't wake up everyday wanting to be hated, yet they know that they're hated and they sure as hell don't wake up everyday thinking of solutions to make people hate them less.

Private_Citizen: /he should understand that my billing department may accidentally overcharge him, and the service center lines have been outsourced.


That has been my unending struggle with them and my service isn't complicated, internet only 19.99 a month butch they have found every possible way to fark that up then have the balls to ask me to go to autopay!
 
2014-05-28 06:12:15 PM
I had Comcrap internet for years, and it was consistently going out.  Once a week, it'd be out for hours at a time.  Switched to Charter, and I have not had ONE outage in the two years I've had it.

Fark you Comcast.
 
2014-05-28 06:13:25 PM
COMCAST on the other hand might not be trying to be evil...but they in no way are looking to deliver progressively better service to all of their markets.  They seek to create more price points upon which to soak the consumer who does not buy off politicians and keep their monopolies flush with streams of cash.

Are they evil?  Yes they are because they do not seek to create value...simply to ride existing infrastructure to the point of obsolescence and then when upgrades are needed...jack up the prices.  Oh to be a cartel!

2014-05-28 06:14:12 PM
I don't really have a problem with my service. It's usually pretty rock solid. My problem is with the fact that I HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE FOR CABLE AND INTERNET. So if I want both of those I have to pay whatever exorbitant fee they choose to charge me.

Oh, and of course there was the instance of trying to get Outlook configured for Windows 8. The Comcast rep couldn't figure it out (turns out the Win8 Outlook doesn't support POP3 email) and offered to transfer me to Tech Support for a charge of "One forty nine". I asked "A dollar and forty nine cents?" No: ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY NINE DOLLARS.

So yeah, fark you Comcast. F*ck you sideways with a rusty chainsaw.

This. Though apparently many towns in the US are in a situation where they only let one company make a bid to do business in the area and then no others can compete, so I'm not even sure where to start when it comes to fixing it. I don't know if they own the lines or what.
