Billing too high

My comcast bill recently increased and so I've compared offerings in my area. I already have streaming services and have learned Starry offers $38/month internet. Is there anything Comcast can do to reduce my monthly bill (Starry is not requiring contract so not going to sign a multi-year contract)?


If not I will be forced to consider a competitor who is offering much better pricing and similar 200MB/S download speeds.

I understand where you are coming from on this post.  The chart below shows the percentages on my plan.  The plan cost and service to other TV's in the house represents 74.2% of the total bill.  The remaining 25.8% (yes, you read that correctly as 25.8%!) are the monthly taxes and fees.


And I don't really spend a whole lot of time watching the content.  It's primarily for the children in the house.  Unbelievable, isn't it?
