Survey: 58% of student loan borrowers would talk to Comcast support every day for 5 years to pay off debt

While Comcast's investment in customer service has moved the needle in recent customer satisfaction surveys, the conglomerate is still struggling to overcome a poor reputation in the popular consciousness. 

Witness a recent survey conducted by the Student Loan Report. Surveying 500 graduated student loan borrows, the group found that 57.8 percent of them would volunteer to speak to Comcast customer service every day for five years to erase their debt. 

To put this context: 77.4 percent of them would give up using Snapchat if they could get rid of their debt; 85 percent would give up smoking pot; and 83.8 percent would forsake HBO's Game of Thrones.

The executive suites in Philly can take heart in the fact that speaking to their reps is still more preferable than jumping into a cage with a gorilla — only 50 percent said they'd do that. And only 26.8 percent said they'd contract Zika to get out of their student loan debt.
