For those who read strictly for the housing information, I ask that you indulge me on this post the housing post for today is below, because it has nothing to do with the housing market but it does have something to do with my home and the City’s cable, Internet and phone provider Comcast.
Yesterday, while I was at work, the fine folks at Comcast came by my home and installed a new cable drop with out my permission or knowledge. The only way I figured it out was when my Internet went out at 8 PM. At first I just thought it was a problem with the router or modem, but at rebooting both I got this new walled page that welcomed me to Comcast.
This explained why there was a welcome pack that was left at the front door when I got home. The packet did not explain the work that was done, what would happen to our service or what needed to be done to correct the issue and get up and running on the Comcast system. It was a pure sales packet that wasted at least a pound of paper. I ignored the packet and fired up my laptop and everything was working fine as if I was still on the AP&T system.
Then the clocked tolled 8 PM . . .and the modem no longer was working.
Coincidently, I saw two Installers outside my home as the problem happen and their response – “It was not us, it must have been our contractors” They told me to call the special
The group in
I can not believe that this is happening to the nearly 7,000 former AP&T Internet subscribers across the city, but if it is, I say to Comcast good luck keeping them as customers. I requested that they remove the old cable drop, let's see if they do this in a timly manner or I need to give up another 67 minutes.
The blog is the only pulpit I have so thanks for hanging in to read my rant.
