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 got a similar letter to that but said 2 yr contract... $19.99 (1st yr), $34.99 (2nd yr). I'm fine paying 34.99 after the second year.

Quote from smoothgi View Post :
Comcast is awesome when it comes to speed & consistency. Been a customer for few years.
And 250G is not the threshold but its there for some self discipline.
Usually they are not so strict about it unless you make it a habit to cross that limit regularly.
I know people who never checked their warning emails in comcast account and they are doing just fine.
And 250G is way more than what most of the competition is offering.

I have installation date today. What modem should I buy? Tech called and said my old modem might not work!!!!
Thanks

On an unrelated note, Comcast is on my wife's name & they just increased the price. If they don't lower it, can I cancel it & get it under my name? Will this be an issue???

I got shot down in 2 online chat attempts between the normal working hours of 9-5, but just had different success after 7 pm. I went from paying $37.99 a month for Performance to $25.21 a month for 12 months for Blast service. If at first you don't succeed, try again!

What chat did you use? Disconnecting doesn't have a chat (at least in my area) so the only one that looks somewhat related is billing. Is that what you used?

If I have ONLY Internet, will I be able to get the local channels for free by just plugging in a coax to my other outlets?

It depends on whether or not they install an inline filter on the coax, before it enters your house, to block the local channels.

Quote from NeoGouken View Post :
I just recently got this deal without knowing it.
At first they offered the 20 bucks for the 12-15mbps package, then the told me I can get the 35Mbps down package for 10 bucks more. 30 bucks for 35Mbps down? Sure I'll take that, my company pays for my internet anyways!

located Redwood City, CA.
tested in speedtest.net
44Mbps down / 6.5 Mbps up
(^_^)

SUPER FAAAAAST!!! [speedtest.net]
