Cox Communications review: Change in service - Cox gets greedy

Cox cable in the Hampton, VA area changed their line up at least for the Cox Starter programming. Gone are Animal Planet, Inspiration Channel and a couple more stations that I used to watch. No replacements unless you like infomercials or shopping networks. Of course there was no change in monthly premiums, just another ploy to have customers to spend more and move up a tier. As for me I am cancelling COX after 20 years of service. Fortunately there are other venues with more to offer at a lower price such as Sling TV and Netflix. Thanks Cox for opening my eyes to the other opportunities available.

Cox Communications review: Your "enemy in the digital age"

1.9
Details
With their contour dvr, it often takes me 4 hours to watch a ball game with picture freezes, service failures, non-functioning fast forward, failure messages reboots etc. This does not include time spent on the phone with tech support reps who are never able to provide help, make up their lies just to get you off the phone. They provide customer support consistent with a company that has a cable monopoly and they know it. When I last completed one of their surveys, I received a call back from a pleasant representative who agreed with me about virtually every problem. Faulty equipment "yes, we have to do better" Misinformation "We have to improve the training in communications" Lack of adequate bandwidth to provide comparable service to DirectTV on sports package "yes, we're trying to upgrade that". No solutions in sight. They obviously subscribe to the P.T. Barnum philosophy of management. " You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the poeple all of the time." FYI, I'm writing this message while rebooting again.

Cox Communications review: Worst cable company in the United States

I hate this company, I have had *** cable for 2 years with auto pay, and recently checked my bank statement and each month my bill is different even though I havent changed my service. I called and ask why, they said they dont know why, gave me credit only to find this month it is differnt again. I suggest anyone that has *** cable to keep an eye on your bill to make sure they are not adding more dollars for nothing. This is a very greedy company that tries to nickel and dime their customers hoping the customer doesnt notice it. Come on *** cable treat the people that keeps you in business better.

Cox bumped my bill price without notice. When I called to change the bill back to the "promotional" price, they "couldn't change it" or offer any discounts, nor was there any way for her to change the bill as it stood. Not okay, Cox.

Cox Communications review: Increasing prices

1.0
Details
I am so tired and frustrated about increasing prices. I am on a fixed monthly income and the prices for services keeps going up. I have several neighbors that have cancelled their service because of this. I have had cable less than a year and have received two increases. I also have internet services through them as well. It is so irritating that prices consistently go up and my income stays the same. We are all fed up with it. You should offer an exception for seniors and disabled. Because we want the service but can't afford it especially if it keeps going up. Why don't you take us under consideration.

Cox Communications review in Moore, Oklahoma: Been down for two weeks

2.4
Details
Live in Oklahoma (aka tornado ally) had a non-tornado thunder storm come through two weeks ago. Service is out for the area - fine. I can understand that. A few days later still service outage in the area - fine. I can wait one more day. One Week down and they still have a service outage for the area - they send out a tech. I'm back up Thursday evening. Friday Morning we are back down again - call Cox and there is another service outage. Next day I call back yet again - they tell me to call back in two hours. This time I request a tech be dispatch. Can't show up till Monday (Memorial Day) - I ask if it being a holiday will affect the tech and was told no and to make sure someone is there. re-arrange my holiday plans - get email saying service tech dispatch has been canceled (at the end of the service window aka 5pm) Call back and was told that they don't work on holiday and it will be even more days for a tech to be available to come out - demand manager at this point in time. Manager in lackluster at de-escalating me - it isn't a service outage and never was it was my house ONLY that is affected and i'll just have to wait. Tech comes out (2nd time now in two weeks) - finds problem at the pole. In the end I was down for all three services for half the month. Had to go over on cell phone data plan (no home wifi), miss-out on holiday plans, have manager talk down to me, ect... Now the battle for bill credit is infuriating and really needs it's own post.

Cox Communications review: Cable company or Crime Syndicate?

1.0
Details
While concluding that the service that we were getting from Cox Cable was nothing less than a parade of Commercials and entertainment was not possible... despite their uncontrolled sales and ever more pointless "upgrades"... We tried to cancel... Apparently they forgot to add that option!!! While every other decision in the so called free world comes with a choice of 'NO" Cox Communications has a policy exactly like the Mafia... Nobody gets out alive! Despite Calling their computerized voice rejection system! which can sell you anything on the planet. with the touch of a button. Sure I figured an Hour and a half on the phone... several times get cut off for no reason the usual... I've spent hours... but at least 20 times trying to even talk with a rep who can actually cancel tv and keep internet!! all they have is sales reps no one has the awesome power of removing their greedy hands from our pockets! if you push the numbers indicated to "modify ' service the computer rejects your call ( cancellation is Not one of the options) speak to a rep (I.e living breathing...) usually cutoff before speaking to a nice person that neither has the power nor a valid clue how to cancel... even a Tick will quit sucking blood when it had it's fill . Cox will cancel the signal anytime but keep billing you! It's a new world now !! ! where it's cool to be a rotten son of a *** !!! Ethics and Protection from the government they only enjoy... American Values are now upside down! ' Corporation Were people too. you're a valued customer! I believe that but not that " My call is Important to them " Who /... the Computer? They need to Play by the Same rules as everyone else! Don't they? They act Mysterious. But being *** is the smartest thing they can do to maximize profits. But they have no soul, conscience and therefore. Are uncapable of doing the morale (honest) thing. Someday I am going to get through and I am going to chew the nice innocent lady that answers a new *** for working as part of a criminal enterprize if she helps i will tell her to have a nice day! I'm though being nice!!!
