Comcast pegs Outrage-ometer
Just when you thought Comcast couldn't possibly get any more outrageous, Karl at Broadband Reports writes:
Last Summer, Comcast started charging customers in many markets an additional $1.99 fee if they wanted to pay their bill at the local Comcast office. Last January, they started charging users $4 if they wanted to speak to a live human being on the phone to pay their bill. Now, the Consumerist claims they've found another way to make a profit: charging users a $1.99 "change of service" fee if you want the company to stop sending you junk mail . . .Yup, soon it'll be $2.00 extra to access nytimes.com, $5.00 to access Google . . . you get the drift . . . Comcast's real problem starts when johnstewart.com is live every night at 11 . . .
