Well my deal ran out this month, total bill was going to be $188
. It started out at $119 3 years ago.
I have the triple play with "HD proffered" that comes with Starz, HD channels, phone and internet.
I called and complained and they offered me a package with HBO and a faster internet for $139 which I took and that's good for one year. She said if that wasn't good enough she could transfer me to customer rep, the implication I got was they would reduce it to the $119 for the same package but I kind of liked the idea of faster connection and HBO.
Once this is up I'm not sure what's next but I did see someone mention on another forum they had successfully downgraded their service into the starter service for $119 which is what I will try.
If that doesn't work I'll dump the phone and the cable TV altogether and go with a dish and some other VOIP service. I have to keep the cable internet no matter what for obvious reasons, DSL isn't going to cut it.
FYI if you're paying for the VOIP modem I inquired about it, in the past they required a Comcast rented modem the VOIP but she informed me this isn't the case. They must of changed their policy. That's another $7 a month. Could of bought 4 of them by now the bastards.
