[Resolved] Mediacom / Lies and Poor Customer Service

5 IN, United States Review updated:

Another unhappy MediaCom customer.

Called last week to set up to add Cable to my prexisting internet service. The date was set for Nov 23 between 8 and noon. I wait till 12:30 and nothing. So when I call to inquire about where the tech is I was told they "Called 3 times" After informing them I had 0 missed calls and no messages I am told they don't leave messages. She puts me on hold and I get disconnected.

After I call back I'm told he called 3 times and left 3 messages ... Strange given I was just told they don't leave messages. I am then told that they will have to reschedule (this is at 1;30) ... I see no reason why the tech who alleges he came to my home can't come back at the end of the day and solve this problem.

I Get disconnected 3 times during 2 hours of being placed on hold, transfered, and told Im a liar. What have I to lie about? I'm a paying customer of 1 year who'm waited a week to get cable service and took the morning off work so that I could be home during the window they requested I be home.

At 4:15 I call and get ahold of someone in CS who says she'll call Illinois (Chilicothi I think she said) which is allegedly where the dispatch center is located and try to get me answers. She insures me she will call me back in 10 mins. I think thats unreasonable and didn't expect her to so I wait and wait and wait and of course nothing

Finally at 4:45 I call back and this time the CS rep has a new fiction tale for me and I am told that he left a Service tag on my door the first time he was at my house... Oh yet another Lie. I then ask my elderly neighbor who sits in front of her window all day if she saw a truck outside. Of course not. I guess they come, call, leave a tag, leave and keep calling? Nonsense. My 4 year old can tell a better lie than these people

And with that 15 mins before the close of business I am told I must wait until AFTER thanksgiving ... A FULL WEEK to get cable.

Of course I have no options except to spread the word to the public and I plan to file a complaint with the BBB

    Comments: I would like to have a e-mail address to send to someone there to show them picture's of the fine install your tech's did here years ago. And I had a Tech here last Friday showed him and he just drove off, didnt even repair it just laughed and shoud his shoulders, shook his head. I found damage from outside moisture in our lower part of our basement and couldnt understand why my feet was always cold in the winter. When I replaced my compute desk this spring I found two hole's and you could see all the way through the hole and see the outside. I want this cleared up .Now
