Comcast does not have a stellar reputation for customer service. Just the opposite, it is one of only two companies to be voted by Consumerist readers as the "Worst Company in America," earning the blog's not-so-coveted Golden Poo award in 2010 and again in 2014.

They're two very different operations, but nevertheless, both companies advanced to a 'championship' round of sorts in an annual poll by The Consumerist to determine the Worst Company in America.
