Comcast Raises Prices In Washington, With A Smile

Comcast is raising its prices in Washington, DC. Basic cable is going from $13.45 to $15.24, Digital Classic $11.96 to $14.95, Digital Premier from $110.10 to $115.45. If a tech has to come out to your home, the fee will go from $19.95 to $29.95. Relocating an outlet, however, dropped from $24.95 to $21.35.Best of all is the charming paragraph on the letter introducing the bill changes.

Dear Comcast Customer: At Comcast, we strive to bring you the highest quality services and programming available. During the past year, we’ve invested in technologies that offer you even more variety, choice, and control. Take a look at some of the changes we’ve made, and those to come! … Due to increased investments we are making in technology, programming, and customer care to bring you the best services and value that we can offer, effective January 1 2008, or with your first billing statement of 2008, certain of our service, installation, and equipment prices will change.

After reading that you practically want them to do you the favor of letting you donate extra money to their cable cause.
