The Company People Love to Hate

Comcast consistently ranks as one of the most hated companies in the US. Just do a search for “Comcast hated” or “Comcast Sucks.” There are actually quite a few websites with variations on the words “Comcast” and “sucks.” You must really dislike a company to go to the trouble of creating a website about it. There are also Facebook, Reddit and other social media pages reflecting consumer disgust with the company. We are not going to link to all of them here as it would make the article too long.
