Houston Protests Comcast Scam PDF Print E-mail

Friday, Jan 20th

Local 100 members in Houston held a very successful protest against Comcast.  Comcast has been falsely advertising a low cost Internet package for low income families that basically NO ONE can sign up for.  When people call for the $9.99/month service, they are talked into signing up for a way more expensive package or paying for a huge deposit ~ a "bait and switch" move.  Comcast is ripping off low income families and doing bad business in Houston and across the country.  Local 100 has joined with a coalition of other groups to get Comcast to honor their word for low cost service.  We will fight until they shape up or get out of own town!  Way to go Local 100!

Local 100 in Little Rock Protests Comcast PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 13 January 2012 03:58

Members of Local 100 United Labor Unions joined Arkansas Community Organizations in demanding that Comcast follow through with their deal to provide low-cost computers and Internet to low income families.

Protest was held at Comcast offices located at 2714 S. Shackleford in Little Rock, Ark. As part of an agreement with the FCC over the acquisition of NBC Universal, Comcast is supposed to offer low cost Internet and low cost computers to families with children enrolled in the federal school lunch program in Little Rock public schools. Yet when parents inquire about the service, they are given the run around.

 The two organizations are working with groups in other cities to put pressure on the company and the FCC to implement the agreement. Computers and Internet access have become as essential to families as phone service. The Internet is now essential for searching for jobs and other opportunities. Many low-income families cannot afford a computer or Internet service. 
“When I received information from my school about the new Comcast program, I was excited,” said Little Rock resident Marthella Johnson. “I called the 800 number and was told I would receive an application in the mail. That was back in August. I still have not received the application.”  Video of action.
