I had forgotten my online password but I was so mad that it automatically came to me. The so called special I signed up for last year ends this month. Basic cable and internet went up to $163.45 including tax. Are they nuts? That is more than double what I have been paying...$87.48 more to be exact.
My main gripe is why did they not inform me before of this drastic increase in prices? It was midnight but they have a 24 hour line so I called. The girl I got, I could barely understand her English and when I did understand what she was saying their darn telephone line was so poor I could hardly hear!
She was trying to make me bundle my services and offered me 200 extra channels including HBO and internet for $141.99. I don't think so...told her she had to come up with something better than that or I would be canceling my service. She asked if she could call me back today at 5:00 p.m. with other offers and I agreed. You guess it...she never called.
I have not received the physical bill yet so I went online to show my mother. That is when I noticed that I had an appointment for a technician to come on October 11th...the date my contract ends. What the heck is going on? Did the
At this point I am so mad I could care less. My mother only watches Lawrence Welk re-runs and I only watch the Weather Channel and the news. I watch my Brazilian soap operas for free since they are beamed to the border from Mexico City and anyway my soap ended last week.
If I want to check my e-mail, I can always go to the library. It is not a matter of money, it is the fact that they basically have a monopoly in this area and they can and do as they please. How can they more than double my bill without any prior notice?
So if you do not see me online after Saturday, you know what happened.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
