Scott Walker's actions wouldn't impact anyone like that. Look at the highest paid government employee and it is almost always a football or basketball coach. A couple states it is like a medical school dean.

Says the signals look fine on her end. I ask her to tell me the signal levels (which is something real techs can tell you and would be necessary if the modem needed troubleshooting) and she is like "I don't have numbers to give you, it just says they are good". I ask if she can connect me to someone else who can give me those numbers and she is like "No one else could because that's all it shows". I say I have spoken to comcast and gotten this info before and she finally goes away to get a senior support person.
Senior support person still provides some idiot-level support (go unplug your router, even though I know that's not the problem, etc). But then she is all like "Just to confirm, you have an XYZ modem? Ok, let me pull up some info and see if it can tell me anything". Doesn't tell me I am crazy when I say the log file messages appear to be connection related, understands that intermittent problems by definition mean that while my service is working fine now after a reset, that it will eventually go bad.
Schedules me a monday morning support visit. Doesn't once mention the possibility of a $50 fee.
How can I call and talk to that person first?
Comcast came out once for us because we had some problems. They checked everything couldn't find anything wrong. Finally, they conclude the modem had been configured wrong when I called in to activate it. They charged me like $50 or $65 or something like that. Such a joke.
