:) Well, I would've threatened to leave to get the discount, but I have nowhere else to go!! Comcast is still the monopoly in my new 'hood. That's why they don't care to innovate!

I ordered new Comcast service this week with the help of a chat agent. She said "because I was so nice," she'd slash the installation fee in half. At $120 for the original fee, I have a feeling they jack up the prices, only to make you feel good when they cut them in half. It's actually pretty effective as a customer-service strategy though...

brookseven: We're trying out new things here at LR, including niceness.


So shut up or I'll start stealing your garbage (again).

Kaps, someone just said Comcast was a monopoly. Care to do a 30-sec spot for Clearwire?
