I've never had a problem with Comcast customer service. They are always patient and helpful. I had some trouble keeping a previous phone number when we changed providers and Comcast went above and beyond to help out. Unfortunately, our internet service has been spotty a few times a year for seemingly no reason, but that's something I've learned to expect from any internet service provider.
