Re: XFinity Electricity Plan
said by odreian615:Yes, and just as you sit down on the porcelain throne to take a dump, the installer will call to verify your appointment. By the time you reach the phone it will have already gone to voice mail, and the technician will skip your house and move to the next appointment on his list.
Don't forget it they will be out for the install between 8am and 8pm
After spending an hour bouncing around Comcast's "support" call centers, explaining over and over again to all those customer care personnel you're switched to that you don't have an account yet while giving them your phone number for the 7th time so they can look you up in the system; you will eventually be given a number to call to see if you can get the installer to return that day. But, of course, when you immediately call that number at 5:02 pm, you will be greeted by an automated message letting you know that the hours of operation are Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm, and your decision to take the day off work will have been in vain.
This process will have to be repeated, although the next earliest available appointment will be at least 2 weeks away.
Network Neutrality Electrical appliance vendors can pay to have their equipment prioritized. For example, your Sony television may get 110V, but your Westinghouse set only 2V.
If you overrun your allowance, you will have cold water for the rest of the month and will have to cook over a fire. For a premium, your microwave can be activated, for popcorn only.

They Must Be Delusional To think people love them so much they would want to give them even more business than they already get. As one of the posts above noted, one could probably expect all kinds of fees. Maybe even a "per outlet" fee for each electrical outlet in your home! Or you get 120V as basic service and pay extra to get 240V!

Re: and if there meters don't work right they will get some smack down from laws Not a problem here in PA...they have the best government money can buy.
Have you power cycled your electric meter? Comcast electric:
"No electricity? Have you power cycled your electric meter?"
"Let me send a refresh signal to your meter."
"Have you tried sticking a wet finger into an outlet to verify you have no electricity?"
Would anyone seriously trust CC/Xfinity to provide electricity in a reliable manner?
