Xfinity has been charging me $8 per month for some digital converter that I don't have. Whenever I notice that extra charge, I spend long hours taking to the customer service to get it removed and then they charge again. They cannot provide details for what is that device. I have my own cable modem and I don't use any digital TV. Also, their internet service is terrible as I have new NetGear modem and whenever it rains, I have to reset the modem because the speed drops from 1GB to 80 MB. They don't have any direct contact number and it is extremely difficult to get hold of their customer service with should start from chat. I have been their customer for over 5 years and started noticing the problems in the past year. Their customer service reps only care about getting good surveys but the issues are not resolved. Last year, I complained about the line issue and the service rep charged me $200 even though the issue was not found inside my house. I spent over two months chasing them for the refund which they promised and I have not seen that refunded in the past year. If this is how Xfinity wants to retain customers, then I am ready to switch to another provider.
