I recently installed comcast cable internet service. Of course, I chose not to rent their modem for $10/month. Opening the account online was pretty painless, but it insisted on a $15 starter kit. Turns out the starter kit is just cable wire, a splitter and completely useless instructions.
The real instructions can be found at www.xfinity.com/selfinstall
I had to call comcast (via the ever helpful gethuman.com) to get a refund for the starter kit, but it was surprisingly pain-free, hopefully comcast is improving…so it is worth calling Comcast for the $15 refund.
