Will Comcast allow business & residential at same address?

Will Comcast allow A Business & Residential account at same address?

In most areas they will. Main issue would be space at tap for separate business drop to avoid both accounts from being disconnected from RF.

In my area, I know for a fact that you can have Comcast Business Class Internet service and Xfinity residential TV service at the same address (because I have both services). I also am continually bombarded with email and USPS mail offers to signup for Xfinity residential HSI service; so I suspect that if I were to accept one of those offers, the service would be activated with no questions asked (since Xfinity does not seem to know that I already have Comcast Business Class HSI).

The primary problem might be if your signal levels would allow a second modem due to the drop in signal levels in a splitter. I know in my case, that a second modem would be very marginal due to the current signal levels. Cablejim1087's suggestion of asking for a separate drop for the second service would probably be a good idea if Comcast allows it in your area. I asked for a separate drop for my Business Class HSI service, but I was told that was not allowed in my area for the same address.

I believe I do have that.

On my two way splitter I actually have a 3 dB attenuator.

With A balanced 3 way splitter and remove the attenuator i should have leniently of signal left.

I currently have both residential and business at home. Working on trying to cancel business as I don't need the large download caps or static IP any more and I'm getting 50/10 residential for half the price of business 16/3.

literally "bombarded". I got mail residential ads multiple times a week for all 3 years of my business class contract. plus the upsells for business voice. what a waste.

In this process of doing this right now. Signed my cancellation paperwork back in June for an August 18th disconnect. I own my own modem and they have yet to cut the service. I called earlier this week to find out what's up and the disconnect was "pending" something. They've "escalated" it and supposedly it'll be taken care of in a couple of weeks. I was hoping they'd disconnect it the 18th or 19th so I can do the walled garden setup for the residential service. I should have had them taken the modem off the account earlier; I really don't understand why it should take so much time to remove the modem from an account.
