Sure. But, now you've got an asset that you've valued at $0 -- the
same as your CELLPHONE competitors! I.e., you've traded away the
liability *and* the asset!
(there's no other "game in town" for landlines; but LOTS of them
for cell phones!)
I live in an area served by Comcast and AT&T.
AT&T put in wimpy Uverse crap and the max I can get from them is 6Mb
down and less than 1Mb up.
For a mere $10 more from Comcast, I can get 120Mb down and 24Mb up.
Why would anyone stay with AT&T? No wonder AT&T is swirling the bowl.
Apparently all cable/telcos have weird plans. Mine, Frontier, after a
year, automatically puts you on what I call, the retail plan ... full
price. I call them and they magically fix it. If you don't call, you pay
and pay. Also, most of these companies have what they call, a retention
department. It is usually just a subset of their call center. If you
complain and make noise about leaving, they hand you over to a retention
droid that is allowed to make deeper changes than the regular person.
They never tell you about the retention department. So that's a good
place to start. BTW, most cable companies will sell you a data only plan
for your internet connection. Cable internet will usually be much higher
speed than DSL. And of course, there is satellite which is usually more
expensive and has data limits. I once told them right out, if they
didn't fix my problem I would cancel all there stuff, even though that
would entail a more expensive internet package via satellite and they
jumped in with a good priced plan.
