Deal Details

UPDATE 2/25/2012 - Got another flier(cost me $15-and i only mentioned to few people so far(read update 2/21 below) for the same offer with a new Expiration date(3/18/2012), whats better is this offer has a different phone number - so try the new number if got shot down on the number from 1st flier. Both fliers are current as of today and attached on the bottom.

UPDATE 2/21/2012 - Reading through the replies - It seems that this thread has helped a lot of SD'ers to receive this(or a similarly slick) offer by either just mentioning the existence of the flier or more commonly faxing/emailing the copy of it to a Comcast rep that asks for it to verify that such a slick offer actually exists. That fact as well as the fact that my neighbors seemingly keep receiving the new versions of this flier on the regular basis(although undetermined interval) gave me an idea. I can try to offer a reward to my entire neighborhood (during a next city hall meet, email list that i can get from local DJ, or just stapling a reward note on a several streets/stores close to my house) in the sum of $15 for each new flier they bring to me - only for the offer i don't already have a flier for (usually means a new/later expiration date and some new/different internal Comcast numbers/codes on it- rest of this offer seems to stay the same(well graphics change as well sometimes)) and only an original flier in the original envelope (to eliminate Photoshoping bounty huntersSmilie. This way i can keep posting new/not yet expired (faxing/emailing expired fliers to Comcast reps will give them a good reason to deny it on the grounds of "that offer is no more") fliers here for my fellow SD'ers. Also if you get a similar flier/offer yourself (or any of your neighbors/friends/relatives do) - post it in this thread and PM me so i can put it into the first/this post(sorry not offering reward for that - but helping fellow SD'ers should be enough of a reward). What do you guys think of this plan? If i get enough reps indicating you think its a good idea - i will offer that reward to keep fliers coming!

UPDATE 2/15/2012 - New Fliers are attached on the bottom (my neighbour got the offer in mail and saved the filer for me) new Expiration is 3/4/2012
UPDATE 2 - Ran some bandwidth tests on this plan - results below

My buddy somehow got the flier for that elusive internet offer that everyone was talking about but i was unable to find anywhere else. Finally got the flier from him and scanned it(sorry about the quality i tried to make it better but my scanner is pretty old and about 5 mins past its expiration date). So far him, his GF, her brother+ his GF and my buds GF's brother's GF's sister(lol-i think i got that right) have successfully signed up by calling the number on the flier(apparently if you just call comcast - they dont know anything about this deal at all). All are in Mass except for the last one- she lives in NH. Out of all only my bud had it installed already-rest are waiting for scheduled appointments(tech to come to house)-but i dont think there will be any problem at this point.

Deal is:
$19.99 a month for 12 months(1 year) and $34.99 for months 13-24(2nd year). Only 1 year agreement(contract) is required so you can cancel right after your bill goes from $20 to $35 in month 13. Best part is - no additional service needs to be purchased(so dont need to sign up for TV or Phone). It is for new customers only(which i think means you didn't have any comcast service for at least last 3 month-not sure on this one though).

Bandwidth Tests on this plan(all ran on 2/15/2012):
Gateway = modem + router in one - (yes i know just modem is less headache but i got real good deal on it and honestly so far it worked perfect as u can see below(same results 24/7 not just offpeak/night).

I just bought new gateway(upgraded from 2 yo SBG900(Docsis2.0(1Down/1UP))) -
Motorola SBG6580 (Docsis3.0 (8channels(4 used ATM) DOWN // 4(1 used ATM) UP) [motorola.com]
FirmWare - SBG6580-3.1.0.0-GA-07-180-NOSH (Old FW(newest is 3.3.1.0 (FW can only be updated by Comcast on gateways and cable modems(thats the reason some people recommend against getting gateways and sticking with 2 separate boxes(cable modem and wire(ed/less) router)- at least FW on the router can be updated by customer then)

All tests on this gateway with this exact plan(Performance(15/3)) ran 2/15/2012:

I'm currently on performance internet for $39.99/mo and it will go up to $64.95 soon. I haven't been able to get on new promotions. I guess I will just cancel the service when the price goes up and sign up a new account with my wife's name. They currently offer performance internet for $29.99 (6 month) to new customers.

You were able to sign up for a $30/month deal while you were an existing customer?

Yes, it was actually available for me to signup myself. Login to your account and go to shop and look for internet only plans. Only differerence for me was when I was logged into my account it showed $29.99 for one year but when I logged out it was $29.99 for 2 years (which would be for new customers). Could be based on area though...this was in Laurel, MD.
I signed in and checked - they were offering 25MB for 19.99 for 6 months, or 50MB for 29.99.

Weird thing is I tried from an incognito session and the options were much worse. Confused

EDIT: nevermind... those are bundle prices not available for internet only. Disregard.

I am seeing it too. But when I added it to the cart, it is charging me $9.95 for shipping the self installation kit. How did you avoid that?

I had the same thing. I chatted customer service about it, and that's where i found out that these offers are only for bundles with cable/phone.

Huh, I see 25meg for $19.99/month for 6 months and 50mb for $29.99/month for 6 months. I just paid $67 for just 25meg internet tonight.

Do I just submit order an it'll update my plan to only charge me $20/month for 6 months? I already have internet though, is there any way around the install kit?

i have had both blast and performance. and never noticed a difference in speed. And this was after numerous complaints about speed and high price. after having blast internet that started at 29.99 it went all the way up to $55 a month over 2 years.

I told them i will cancel if the price is not more competitive. and was told only way to lower price was to get performance internet. started performance @ 39.99 earlier this year and cant believe i paid 55 a month for this crap internet service......

See my comments above. I think the lower prices are only available as add-ons to existing phone or cable service. the website is far from clear about that but if you try to sign up it will send you to a chat with a rep who will break the bad news.

I just signed up for comcast Monday. For some reason I was also signed up for internet plus and had a scheduled appointment for Jan 4th that I never agreed to. Tried to get a promo online and set it up for internet only but no avail since that appointment was made.

Ended up calling the MN number on here to which I was transferred to someone else so they could cancel the appointment and the package. I was very fortunate with the transfer and dealt with a very pleasant lady who helped me get 29.99/mo for 12 month package. With all the times in the past I've dealt with comcast this was by far the best experience I've had. Too bad it won't always be that way.

Now I'm on the performance package which claims 25mb but when I do speedtest it comes back consistently 35mb. No complaints from me bounce

Once the year is over what do you guys do to get promo pricing again?

35mb is probably because of powerboost. If you want an accurate spped test there is another one that checks a larger file to test and give real numbers.

seems like comcast really jacked up the prices for internet only users...

Question to any internet only users in NJ. Are you charged taxes/franchise fee, etc? I didn't have it on my husband's account when we first had the service but after I signed up under my name, I am now seeing these random fees. Billing tells me this is standard practice...

so what did they say when you complained about the increase, the constant cutting out, and the high price for the 25mbit internet?
