I hate to say this, and get involved in the melee, but... Perhaps the
problem is that for an average customer service employee there are 1000
calls about something meaningless and not-wrong and only 1 call about
something truly wrong? So escalating every problem that seems even half
baked isn't an option?

Perhaps some of the comcast folks reading might take a better/harder look
at their customer service tickets and do a 'better' job (note I'm not even
half of a comcast customer so I'm not sure that there even IS a
problem...) on this issue?

In general blaming the first level tech for something isn't going to get
anyone anywhere near a solution. Perhaps Sean's actually saying: "The
right tool is to use another provider?" even though Steven's thought is
that the 'other provider' is in the same boat of clue :(
