Comcast tiers/prices, how do you know?

How do you even see what's offered in your area?

Re: [Bill] Performance Starter $$$$

There are a couple different ways to get there. I just go to Comcast.com, sign into my account with my main account login and go to the very top left of the page where you will see "Shop". Once you click that it will torture you with another login usually.

So you can't bundle Extreme 105 with TV? That sucks. I'd throw money at that sort of Double Play bundle upgrade.

I'm assuming my current speed is 50 Mbps/10Mbps, since it says both Performance and Blast on my current services?

The deals change from time to time & the limitations are annoying who qualifies. Even after you read the "Details and Restrictions" it can be confusing when trying to get a package/deal.

Your services look bizarre. Just another illustration of what "What the heck is that" LOL!

Not to mention I got this in my email today. What the hell does that mean, it's like they have two internet lines to my house?

It just looks like they don't have an actual bundle for Blast with that level of TV service, so they give you the Performance Double Play and just add the $10 for Blast to keep giving you a Double Play discount.

(OP, sorry for the derail)

I think Comcast's Xfinity speed test might be fibbing a little, compared to DSLR's:

Try ShaperProbe & Comcast. Forget BBR's tests.

Yep, 50/10, but on the low end.

Re: [Bill] Performance Starter $$$$

That's the same way my bill reads, except for the price, at least for several more months.

Preferred TV/Performance HSI bundle with separate $10.00 chg for Blast. It also showed a separate credit for three months to reflect an upgrade promotion to Blast.

I don't
It's a mess. Even reps on the phone can't tell me what the price of Performance internet is once it's $48 once it's $53

If it isnt 53 it will be, 48 was the old price.
