Comcast Lobbyists Give Lawmakers Golden Tickets: Secret Phone Numbers To Reach Good Customer Service

from the giving-a-damn-is-a-special-perk-just-for-you dept

Comcast has certainly been pulling out all the stops to get its $45 billion acquisition of Time Warner Cable approved by regulators. That has involved calling everyone who opposes the merger ignorant and unreasonable, paying minority groups to parrot the company's positions, and generally repeatedly denying all of the competitive and monopsony concerns raised by deal critics. All while the company's top lobbyist, David Cohen, busily dodges lobbying rules by pretending he's not actually lobbying (he seriously calls himself the company's "Chief Diversity Officer").

Comcast has employed some forty lobbying firms to court DC politicians, and offered up cash donations to 32 of the 39 members of the House Judiciary Committee that recently held hearings on the merger. In a piece exploring how David Gregory lost his job on "Meet The Press," (and the rise of Comcast's David Cohen as a K Street powerhouse) the Washingtonian points out that Comcast lobbyists have also been busy handing out special "VIP cards" to DC lawmakers. These cards feature a single-use phone number that will prioritize your customer support call:
"Comcast also had an even more personal way of sucking up to Washington. Its government-affairs team carried around “We’ll make it right” cards stamped with “priority assistance” codes for fast-tracking help and handed them out to congressional staffers, journalists, and other influential Washingtonians who complained about their service. A Comcast spokeswoman says this practice isn’t exclusive to DC; every Comcast employee receives the cards, which they can distribute to any customer with cable or internet trouble. Nevertheless, efforts like this one have surely helped Comcast boost its standing inside the Beltway and improve its chances of winning regulatory approval for its next big conquest: merging with the second-largest cable provider in the country, Time Warner Cable."
Comcast's customer service is, as we've noted a few times, historically awful. As in, surveys show it's worse than nearly any other company in any other industry, which is no small feat. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts frequently complains that this is simply because the company's so large, and that statistically you're simply going to have a lot of squeaky wheels. So amusingly, in addition to throwing cash at DC lawmakers, Comcast is using actually giving a damn about your customers (or the illusion of giving a damn, as Comcast employees tell me these cards are common and don't actually do all that much) as a "special perk" you can only get if you're immeasurably annoyed with the company -- or a DC lobbyist that can help it out.

What's the over/under on a larger Comcast someday waking up and realizing that the company should focus on giving everybody decent customer service?

    "paying minority groups to parrot the company's positions"

    Wait? Are you saying that those minority groups are not actually advancing their cause and instead parroting a bunch of dogmatic or political diatribe to "shake down" organizations for money and good public will?

    Say it isn't so!!!!

    Betting is that "Decent customer service" will soon be a premium offering (i.e. an offering at a `premium' price point) in a tiered customer support offering. These cards are only a test to see what could effectively be the minimum level of service that people are willing to pay for.

      Re: Xfinity Signature Support

      They already had that for years called Xfinity Signature Support. They ended the program at the end of 2013 and let go of all the techs. Their main function was fixing PC issues (malware cleanups) and setting up Third party equipment. The only actual real north american techs you could reach on the phone there. They now have something called "home networking support" which does not cost extra, but they only help with old comcast routers or their current gateways. These are also mostly north american but for the most part no where near the tech ability that XSS was, but still better then Tier 1 support. These cards actually don't get cs reps with any more power then calling the regular line, you might just get someone you can actually understand. -Former XSS Tech.

    Tell the real story

    Every Comcast employee (yes EVERY) gets these cards to give out. They're called "We'll Make it Right" cards. They aren't just being given to high profile people. Your grandma can get one. That guy that makes the weird drawing in your mocha latte can get one. YOU can get one if you ask a Comcast employee that has one on them.

    This is misleading reporting and you should be ashamed of yourselves. I know it's hip to ride the Comcast hate bandwagon, but shouldn't you have a shred of journalistic integrity here?

        This program doesn't seem to work very well.

        Sadly, it does work very well, though apparently not for Comcast. My cable vendor (not Comcast) has the same process, though it isn't really a secret. When the technician arrives at your house, after they complete whatever it is that they were sent to do, they automatically give you their business card and tell you to call the number on the business card for up to six months for issues related to whatever they did.

        I had a problem once with a device that wasn't working properly. The technician arrived and replaced the device, then a couple weeks later the new device failed. I called the number and he came out the next morning to replace the device and track down why the devices were failing (which turned out to be a ground loop issue in that their cable line was improperly grounded and the device was becoming the ground for everything else attached to the cable.

        It was nice being able to call directly to someone who was already aware of the issues without having to re-tell the problem and go through the scripted troubleshooting for a problem that wasn't mine to begin with.

            True. They are different programs. However, dismissing the fact that other vendors do the same thing with different results is not irrelevant.

            What it points to is what Techdirt has called the Cargo Cult mentality on the part of Comcast. Other people are doing this with some success, so Comcast implements it, and then doesn't understand why it is failing because everyone else has implemented it with success.

              Possibly, though I wonder if that gives Comcast too much credit. That is, they may understand perfectly well that this will fail. Rather than an honest but misguided attempt to improve customer service, it seems more likely to me that it's a cynical attempt to look like they're improving customer service without having to spend the money that would be required to actually do it.

          I've heard of this for other companies, not just cable. The number on that card is for the tech. Depending on the company: if you call the general number and the work is under warranty, the tech may get their pay docked! By calling the tech directly the tech still gets paid for their time.

          (Yes, I've seen a few techs who deserved to get their pay docked.)

      If every employee has them and passes them out, then it's likely the finite resources of 'good customer service' (teehee) will be overrun and become normal, shitty Comcast customer service.

      I'd like to get one. Then I'd like to use it to get Comcast to come out to my neighborhood and do something about the wiring that's laying on front lawns (instead of being trenched) and the distribution boxes that have (variously) missing, ill-fitted or broken covers -- oh, and the distribution boxes that have garbage bags taped over them.

      I have made a point of noting this to every Comcast technician that I've seen in the neighborhood since 2001 -- y'know, if I'm out walking the dog when they show up or something like that. I would estimate that this happens 2-4 times a year, so by now I've reported it 25-40 times.

      See if you can guess what's been done. Go on, guess.

      So if there's a Comcast hate bandwagon (is that a thing?) then I'm on it. And I want a seat in front.

        If trash is left on my front lawn, I always pick it up and throw it away, even if that requires a pair of wire cutters. Same goes for garbage bags and other litter carelessly left about. We all have to pitch in to keep the neighborhood clean.

        Once some cable laying folks left some conduit and other installation materials in a vacant lot near my house. After a couple of weeks where there was clearly no signs of activity, I simply took pictures and posted it all to CraigsList Free. The stuff was gone the next day.

          Those cables and junction boxes are live. Well, except when they're not. Why do you think I see Comcast trucks and personnel so often? They probably could have avoided nearly all of those truck rolls if they'd sent a crew out to do it right, once, many years ago. But because they don't care about reliability or service or much else -- and why should they, after all? -- they never touch it unless something's broken.

      Hi Comcast Employee
      I beg to differ on this matter as I have been a Comcast customer for several years. And the only reason I have not changed is we are just getting Verizon available in my area. I have been very unhappy with my service and the customer service numerous times and have tried to be very patient with customer service personnel.
      Never once has a service rep or the manager I have asked for a few times offered my family a card. So I am sure they only go to friends and family of the employees,and now politicians.

      Greasy wheels or squeaky wheels...

      Is it safe to assume customer service experiences fall on a bell curve? If so, then some people will have crappy service, more people will have poor service, most people will have average service, some people will have good service, and a small percentage of people will have excellent service.

      We've been hearing from all the people who have crappy service, so where are all the people who have excellent service?
      I know the press tends to inflate the crappy-service stories, but why doesn't Comcast itself start a marketing campaign to promote all the excellent customer service stories? Or have they just given up?

    To be fair, lawmakers and staff at the state and federal level often use this kind of access to help constituents who call their offices with problems.

    So a service you pay for and expect customer service to come with it is so poor that even the company Comcast recognizes it's so poor at it, that it gives away what is in essence a lottery chance at getting it?

    What this tells me is Comcast has a policy of poor service and does it intentionally. This is not accident, this is planned. This is what no customer wants in a company much less one proposed to become the biggest ISP in the nation.

    Just on the basis of its customer service record were it up to me, Comcast would not have a chance to merge with TimeWarner.

    2nd. those in Congress and the Law Makers need to be investigated for bribery and corruption, but then i suppose they are more powerful than any of the security forces, so are able to go on their merry ways, getting whatever a company wants to throw at it to achieve their ends

    We had such crappy service with Comcrap that it wasn't a question of IF our cable went out, but WHEN was the next time it would go out. We had over 2 dozen internet outages in 1 year! I am for Title II, the Kansas Corporation Commission did advise me that IF you have Comcrap phone service, they CAN and WILL step in, as that counts as a public utility.... FYI

    Anyway, the tech gave us a make it right card.... we tried using it.... it resulted in the same responses. There was no "special treatment". We knew the techs and they new us... they were nice guys, but the things they would say about Comcrap! WOW!!!!

    There is nothing special about these cards, they are intended to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside and that is it.

    Cards with secret passwords

    I know that the SCOTUS has demolished campaign finance reform and allowed more campaign contributions, but surely the value of a card that lets you get good customer service from Comcast exceeds even that!

    1st Class Peanuts in Gold Foil Taste Like, . .

    I'm thinking the COMCAST VIP cards are no more significant than any other bit of gold-foiled ephemera handed out to the pampered ones. What class of human beings responds more to meaningless trinkets and shiny baubles than the political class?

    Of greater importance IMO is an omission in the Hill's article on COMCAST's lobbying- one of my favorite D.C. critters was not mentioned, long-time COMCAST lobbyist former Sen. Don Nickles and his firm, the Nickles Group LLC. While the Nickles Group is only middle of the pack in terms of COMCAST's lobbying dollars (OpenSecrets.org) The New York Times mentions that Sen. Nickles is one of the hotshots on Comcast's Time Warner merger strategy team (NYT- Comcast’s Web of Lobbying and Philanthropy) And just this past week, one of Don Nickles' right-hand lobbyists, and dedicated servant of COMCAST, Hazen Marshall, was named Mitch McConnell's policy director. (POLITICO- GOP goes on K Street hiring spree).

    May you continue to enjoy your fine COMCAST customer service in the coming new year, with help from the U.S. Senate leadership.

    the more bribes and deals a company makes the worse their service tends to be.

    Comcast

    I worked at Comcast for almost 8 years and there is no such card that applies to employees or customers. A matter of fact I asked for business cards and never got them. Comcast use to have lead techs to handle repeat issues at a house. The biggest problems with techs and customers is you have 1 hour to find and fix a problem. 15 minutes for drive time and 45 minutes on the problem. If we requested more time at a house it was held against us and went against the tech departments combined end of year bonuses. All of Comcast issues come directly from the top. Techs are asked for their input but rarely used. I have tons of stories about horrible company. If any company needs a union thats it.
