Re: Comcast Business Response to COVID-19

Due to the effects of Covid-19 my business has given up it’s office lease, opting to work remotely in hopes of salvaging the business. I no longer need business internet and I can not pay my bill. My business is suffering and I have been on hold for over 4.5 hours attempting to talk with someone. I need to cancel my account, and have been tortured by awful classical music on repeat, tempting me to give up, as I'm sure they hope. This is how Comcast treats it’s small business customers in a time of crisis. Please, can someone help me cancel my account?

Re: Comcast Business Response to COVID-19

I couldn't get past the Customer Support robot, so I tried Chat instead. I did have somebody to converse with and the exchange was satisfactory. We will see on Monday when I expect a tech to see how effective it is. But it is at least something you could try.

Re: Comcast Business Response to COVID-19

This is same with my case. I called last month to cancel because there was just no more business. Comcast told me they were not going to charge me for the next bill do I said ok. They still went ahead and charged me last April 20. When I called yesterday, they conveiniently said they forgot and that they will give me my money back and offered me to lower my speed at a lower price just so i wont cancel which I again agreed. I called again today to check on my refund and now they are saying they will not give me any money since it was a legitimate charge and that they will just give me the credit on the next month but I already agreed with them yesterday to just lower my internet hoping business will be back to normal in the coming months. Comcast, why do you do this to your customers!? Look my account up and you will see I have been a paying customer with no issues whatsoever!
