  • Charter Internet Service

    I am purchasing and moving to my daughter and son-in-law's home. They currently have Charter internet service. The system is currently up and running. They have it set to end the billing in their name at the end of the month. I simply want them to keep it up and running (no interruption), just change it to our name. We own the router.The rep told me that they would have to charge me $29.99 install fee!!! What install? This is why people get frustrated with Charter! I was considering changing our tv service to them (currently my kids have direct tv). SO FRUSTRATED! More...

  • Charter Communications billing unfair

    After years of being a loyal customer. Charter has made me look elsewhere for my cable and internet service. We always worked a deal in the past but with their new policy of only giving promotions to new customers. It seems that being a new customer means more than sticking with them. So in order to receive new customer benefits for promotional savings I will have to drop them for a bit. Like a lot of businesses out there it takes a few to people to move on in order for them to get the big picture. So if you're a charter customer and wont to keep paying for service that others get at... More...

  • Awful horrible annoying commercials

    Charter needs to fire the ad campaign manager.Tthey are doing more harm by repelling potential new customers or acquiring new customers, meanwhile annoying your current customers. Get a clue. Everytime that damn commercial airs ( especially the dancing office people) my husband and I scramble to find the remote to change the channel. It's maddening! We cannot stress enough how annoying these ads are. It makes want to hurt small kitties and then stab ourselves in the ears!! Please do something!! More...

    Charter Communications Attention: Customer Complaint 2 Digital Place Simpsonville, SC 29681 or call 1-888-438-2427 Received my cable bill yesterday and called customer service and billing. (1) I was being charged for a service call which not only was their fault but which increased problems with what they "fixed." The repairmen told me that my modem was the problem (and that it was not covered since I had bought it from Charter) and so they installed a small white modem (I learn now at $5 a month) with one outlet to replace my stronger modem with four more outlets and then...

  • Charter TV reception

    So Charter, what are you going to do about all the negative reviews I've read about and unfortunately experienced over the past six to ten years? I know the answer... NOTHING...because you're a crap company that does nothing but steal money from hard working people. Who cares if you have all these HD channels. You can't see them anyway because of the problems we all experience. I've written multiple letters to you directly on the website with no response. I guess you don't really care as your laughing your way to the bank. Thanks for nothing! More...

  • Questionable bundled service

    Charter bundle : t.v., internet, phone. No problem with phone,but Charter e-mail messed up after a few weeks ; tried solving problem thru virtual assistant to no avail. A call to Charter said there was a problem in my area, technicians were working on it. Apparently they couldn't "fix it", so I don't use it ! Also, one t.v quit working properly : no picture. A call connected me to a technician who 'sent a signal' which was supposed to re-connect. It didn't, so she sent 'a stronger signal'--didn't work. I was told to call someone to the... More...

  • Unfair & prejudice promos/ bad business

    I recently got off the phone with a Charter rep. After replying to one of the 100k promo letters i get in the mail. I am grateful Charter will once again let me open new service after my bankruptcy. However the more I think about it I am pretty upset and although their promotions are great they are limited and unfair in quite a few ways.      I am trying to get my life back on track after some rough years. Anyways i was approved but have to pay the first month up front along with installation due to my credit. I just need the internet because I need it for more than a... More...

  • Charter Appointments a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT

    I already had cable internet and decided to add television service. I was told that no extra installation would be necessary. I received the cable boxes and nothing will activate! I've been on the phone with Charter multiple times and they decided to send a tech out. The tech rewired the entire house for cable and determined that everything was fine in the house. Nothing still works... he told us it was an outside line problem. Wait a day and see if it's resolved... A day later I'm back on the phone with Charter. They make me another appointment. 3-5pm they say. I carve the... More...

  • TV Commercial

    Having to watch the horrible commercial over and over again with the angels was nausating with the blond pursing her lips. Now they have some office setup where they push the desks out of the way and dance - the blond girl bobbling her head gives me the creeps. Wow - is it that hard to make a decent commercial - especially when we have to see it over and over. It ranks right up there with the Carl Jrs. commericals. More...

  • Misleading Business Practices

    Beware, I recently ordered Charter Services. I was told there would not be a service charge and, of course, I was billed for one. I was told one price for their cable boxes and charged a higher rate. On the second month, they decided to start billing me for a phone that I never ordered. When I called to inquire about the phone billing, they removed the phone charged and increased the rate higher than I was paying for all 3! Upon filing a better business dispute, they again promised I would be properly credited. Guess what, another bill and it's not right either! I'm so... More...

  • Terrible product and service..

    I'm just one of the lucky Missoula, MT residents that has been recently force fed Charter Communications. WOW this has to be without a doubt the WORST company I have ever had to deal with. Pathetic is an understatement when it comes to these ding dongs. I was perfectly happy with cable company and service we had prior to Charter. I'm going back to satellite TV. Can't stomach the fact that these jerks are taking away services and quality and have the balls to raise prices.. all while telling us how wonderful they are while you are on hold for 20 minutes trying to get through...

I was not happy that it was a week out, but was willing to live with it. 1st appointment 7 days after order: Could not do the installation since Tier 2 was not working at that time 2nd appointment 9 days after order: Put on connector wrong (according to next tech out) that broke the internet and did not finish install. 3rd appointment 10 days after order: Fixed the connector - got Internet working again. :) 4th appointment 11 days after order:...

  • Wiring my neighborhood

    Frustrated by the whole wiring my neighborhood process. You dug a six foot deep hole in my back yard on Friday & it was that way all weekend. The monstrous green box you have put into my back yard is UGLY and way too big. Your nice site supervisor did fix the grass you ruined. NOW I come home from work to find a huge wooden cable spool on my front yard on top of grass that I pay dearly to feed and maintain and also mow & blow.Tried to send pics but they aren't video.

  • Charter not sending my credit

    On June 30th, 2014, my husband returned our cable and internet equipment to the local shop and cancelled our service. We moved to a town not serviced by Charter on July 1st. Originally, we were supposed to get an $14 credit, but since I had them set up as autopay, they were sent another $181. I called immediately and was told they would try to electronically refund the payment, and if that wasn't possible, I could expect a check in the mail in 6 to 8 weeks. I contacted them again after 6 weeks and was told to wait another 2 weeks. Today (over 9 weeks later), I contacted them and was... More...

  • Charter lack for public safety

    There is a large yellow jacket nest inside one of charter communication boxes. First I thought it was Century Links so I called them, They sent someone right out to deal with the problem. When they arrived I was informed that it belonged to Charter, So I called charter and was told to call my local pest control office. Very little concern that the yellow jackets are next to a play ground that kids play. So as far as public safety goes figure out for yourself who cares more: Century Links or Charter. More...

  • Charters 100% digital.

    Okay, we all know Charter LOVES to rip off its costumers. We are required to pay more so we can have cable in more then one room of our house. If you don't want to pay just bring the box with you into the rooms your watching TV. Its tedious and annoying, but you wont have to pay the extra. Charter is a rip off and always will be. I'm waiting for someone to actually make something that works with actual real world prices. Then charter will loose all there business and die out like all the other over priced a**holes. IT WILL HAPPEN CHARTER, WATCH OUT! More...

  • Tv freeezes

    All of the channels do not give proper signal and it keeps freezing so the screen will be frozen and there will be no audio either. It is very annoying because you are not able to watch the shows properly. When we try to move the black antenna box there will be some fluctuation in the signal but still cant see 100% of the screen because it is still freezing. I have basic cable and it is giving me these issues so there is no chance for me to get more services from you guys. This needs to be resolved or i will need to cancel my services. More...

  • Installation Fee Chat Resolution

    We recently switched to Charter after many years with DirecTV for a better price and new phone. Never had a good experience with Charter before and we were leery about switching. There wasn't supposed to be any installation fee from Charter. We got the first bill and there was an installation fee. I went online to use the chat with an agent feature, which works great by the way. After explaining the situation the rep asked me to hold while he checked with a manager. This is normally code for I'm going to goof off and then tell you no as far as I'm concerned. A few... More...

  • Charter Lies about Internet Pricing

    I've been a customer with Charter Cable for several years now. I started with a "new customer" pricing, of about $29.99/mo for internet cable. Suddenly, without me noticing any warnings, I was paying $50+ per month! I called them, and asked why they were still advertising the $29.99/mo, but were charging me. The rep said that it was for new customers only. So, I went online to THEIR website, and put in my address for the special price and it accepted me! But, my monthly charge wasn't changed back to the special pricing. When I called Charter, of course, they said... More...

  • Internet & Cable with Charter Communications

    Charters Internet & Cable has been the worst, overall. We switched to them a decade ago, thinking service would be better & faster. Sure, when it works.. it's fine. It's how OFTEN they are down or there are constant dc's with the internet & cable channels freeze or the picture is broken up so bad, you can't watch. You have to be home all the time for them to invade your space frequently to then say, we aren't sure what the issue is, when after all it is THEIR problem.

  • Terri ble customer service for existing customers

    Dissatisfied with customer service - Bundle My bill jumped from $189 to $268 a month. When I called to complain 8 months ago they told me my bill would be just over $100 with the triple select plan. Instead of going down it went up. I have been offered the same services by ATT for $106.00 a month WITH a $100.00 reward bonus. Has Charter got so big that they do not care about their existing customers? I have heard SO many complaints about them recently and now they have some competition. Maybe everyone will move their services. I have had it. I was just told by customer services that he was...

Charter what a rip off company. It didn't even take one month before they started there garbage. It was suppose to be $100.00 a month for tv, computer & phone. Fist we never could get any of the phones to work, then when they did send the bill it was almost $400.00 (for three weeks).
We immediately disconnected every thing and returned it, then they tried to get us for non return of there equipment (we even got a receipt, to prove we returned it). First they called & started there shit about not returning there equipment, I told them I returned it & even have a receipt saying I did. "Oh ok sir let me look, oh so you did return it sorry, goodbye". We called them, (a couple day's later) talked to a supervisor & made arrangement to pay $50.00 a month, he said that would be fine. We've made two payments so far & they call & harassing us two or three times a month. They called this morning woke me up at 7:00 in the morning, I'm retired I like to sleep in a little bit. And started saying how they we're turning the bill over to a collection, I told them I mailed the next $50.00 to theme yesterday. She say's we need it all now or it's going to collection's.
We ended up going to AT&T, now there's a real company.

I have been a customer of charter for a long time. I am sooooo disappointed with their service since the have went all digital. Now you have to have a box for all tvs, even if you have a cable ready tv. Besides, I only have basic and extended basic, which alot of the time channels take extremely too long to come in when you change channels. I am so sick and tired it it!! They need to say also in the advertisment about charter not going out when the wind blows, well, they need to mention the channels dont come in half the time. They sure will send you a high bill, which is outrageous!! No credits are given, and I am sure they know about this problem. Am seroiusly thinking about switching service!!

osmerde1 says: (2 years ago)
I participated in a charter sponsored survey about their service -- at the end I was asked to submit info about name, address, e-mail, which entered me into a survey sweepstakes -- e-mail says I won, but they want the same info I posed at the end of the surrey, and now want to birth date -- doesn't see legit-- however the,communications all come from Charter communication --- is tit real ???

Red Sox...They are a major league baseball team. Unfortunately, you can't watch a Red Sox game on NESN during the Stanley Cup playoffs because on those nights, the Red Sox games are being broadcast on a cable channel that Charter doesn't subscribe to! They're broadcast on NESN Plus. I called Charter and they never heard of NESN Plus! Can anyone explain that?

drr45 says: (2 years ago)
My problem starts with the web site...or web sites. Why is Charter the only company in the entire universe that needs TWO distinct web sites. Is it for this or that or is it The user name conventions are different and as luck would have it, I always put in the wrong password too many times and get locked out. So, I call and have the password reset to the default password then go in and change it. Of course, I can't use the old password so I make up a new one. A couple of weeks later, invariably I go through the same BS again!! The agents always say "The .net site is for (fill in the blank) while the .com site is for (everything else). Can anybody tell me which is for which? Even tech support personnel have put me on hold to dig up the answer because they weren't sure. CHARTER DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!! Get rid of one or the other. Why does Charter make it so profoundly difficult for a consumer to access the information at the Charter web site/sites. I've got more to complain about, I just don't have the time!

doreena67 says: (2 years ago)
What really makes me mad about charter, is that they refuse to pick up their equipment. They said I have to live 30 miles away before they will send b oxes to return their boxes. WELL I DO!!!. I charter office is 35 miles from me.So for now on I will only give a 30 days notice to pick up, after that all equipment is throw away.I only give the 30 day notice because it the law. By the way, their service trucks are in my small town every day.

Charter's commercial promoting their service using "Timothy" makes me wonder about why his parents don't have the guts to take control of their obnoxious child. Does Charter really think this commercial is viable? It certainly isn't funny!

barkbusterbill says: (4 years ago)
My 2 cents, they don't make sense. The worst customer experience I have ever had with a company. The people who work for this company don't know what the other hand is doing. Talk about getting a run around, this company sets the new bench mark. It is like they are out to do as poor a job as they can. If I could try another cable provider I sure would, but they are the only company in our area.

I'm having all the same problems with Charter bundle that I've seen on this blog. How does one get out of this horrendous contract? Thanks.

Charter is absolutely the worst Internet service I've ever had.

Goes down weekly for hours and every night af midnight it mysteriously gets even slower and more unusable than normal. Today it went down for over 24 hours and it's still down.... ridiculous!

Their cable service might be even worse... I keep losing channels and having to have technicians come out. Only one tech I've had come here knows anything about how to solve things...but then again the issues keeping coming back.

Never ever ever sign up for this service unless it's free AND you have a backup plan, My iPhone 3G Internet is more reliable!... sheesh!

Charter Communications has been my service provider for 2 years, and for 2 years they advertise; 'You don't have to wait to watch your favorite show, see it on demand anytime.' 80% of the shows they claim to be on demand are never on demand! This is called false advertisment?
