Deal Details

Last Edited by pesok February 24, 2012 at 10:42 PM
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 looking into subscribing as an Internet only customer.

My question is that I think I may need a new line run from the box at the street to my house - as I think the existing line has been cut (we are not the original owners). Probably 200' run of cable and am wondering if and if so how much would this cost? Or would this be included in the install????

Thanks

They ran my line (about the same distance) for free when I signed up for service (well, it was part of the $25 installation fee).

I just got in on this as a cable subscriber but no internet. I called the number in the wiki and she wasn't able to find my account or even my address in her system so she couldn't sign me up. She gave me a CS number which i called and selected disconnect service. The guy put me on hold for a couple min. then said his sup approved the deal but that it was a 2yr contract. I dont really care about it but told him the offered stated it was a 1 yr contract. He said if I could fax a copy to him he would leave it at 1 year. We'll see if it works but thanks to the OP for the info.

I was also able to register my own modem during the same call and was able to self install so no install fee and I had it working in no time. Speedtest - 20+/3.75 vs my old dsl of 1.3/.75 Big Grin
Were you already a Comcast customer?

I called and they said I have to call customer service to have my address added tot he system before I can get the deal. I asked her for the deal details and she said that it was 3MB for 1 year at 19.99. Is that right? That seems like the economy speed, not performance or whatever they call it...?

existing Performance Internet customer (no TV or phone) just outside of Chicago. I was not able to get the 2 year contract deal, but was given $19.99/mon for 6 months and $34.99/mon for the next 6 months. I had to speak to someone in the customer loyalty department

Right before the install I called Comcast to make certain what I was signed up for. Economy and not performance for $14.99. I cancelled with the guy at the door. Oh well.

I thought I'd had luck by calling this number from the wiki:
1-877-298-0903 - Confirmed in CA, TX
BUT, after she had me on the phone for the 19.99 for 5 minutes and had taken my address, etc. all of a sudden she said that they only had the 14.99 at 1.5mbps after all, at my address. I'd seen other people have had luck in Houston. If you can explain how, it's appreciated. Maybe it's just a matter of who you get on the line, but please let me know if there is more to it than that.
