CreditsThere are a few reasons why you may see a credit on your bill. For example, if you experience a lengthy service outage, we may apply a credit to your account.
If you rent a cable box, modem or voice equipment from Comcast Business, you may see a separate line item on your monthly bill. Your equipment rental fee could be included in your service charge or be provided as part of a promotion, in which case you may not see a separate charge for that equipment. However, depending on your package, we may charge separately for the equipment. If you are receiving equipment under a promotion, you will be charged the rental fee for that equipment when your promotion ends. This rental fee may change from time to time, and you will receive advance notice before an increase takes effect.

Promotions are a great way to try different packages or services at a discounted price. During the promotion, a discount is applied to everyday pricing.
If you are currently receiving Comcast Business services with a promotion or a minimum-term agreement associated with a specific rate, or in the guaranteed period of one of our SurePrice* plans, the prices for those specific services will not change during the applicable period.
However, the following may change at any time during the promotion period:
- Taxes and fees
- The Broadcast TV Fee and the Regional Sports Network Fee
- Equipment charges
- Charges for service to additional TVs
- Other additional services
*SurePrice plans are only available in select areas.
When your promotion comes to an end, your discount also ends and your service will change to the then-current pricing on your rate card for your Comcast Business services.
Additionally, if you are receiving any premium channels under a promotion, such as HBO® or SHOWTIME®, they will either be removed from your account or your bill will reflect the then-current pricing on your rate card for the premium channels when your promotion ends.
Occasionally, we may review your account to ensure you aren’t being over- or undercharged for services. However, you should review each monthly bill you receive to confirm your services and charges.
If we discover you aren’t being charged appropriately for your services, equipment or fees, we will correct the charges. For example, if you are being charged for service to three TVs when you have four TVs connected, we will give you advance notice that we will correct your bill to incorporate the service to the fourth TV.
