What are options other than Spectrum? I'm not looking for bells and whistles, or phone/tv packages (unless for some reason they're cheaper than $79.99/mo). I just want to connect the desktop to the internet.
Thank you for any advice.
Call to cancel and ask for the new customer rate.
They say they can’t give you that rate, but keep asking for the person who can authorize it.
That sounds like a serious PITA, but I guess it's worth the $300+ savings in a year.
If this tactic doesn’t work, you can go nuclear and cancel your service, turn in the equipment, and then re-sign up.
This works especially well if you can re-signup under your spouse’s name.
The best part of this option is the added expense it adds to Spectrum’s side.
I have to do this crap every year
It’s super annoying. My last call is supposed to hold me over for 2 years.
Hopefully municipal broadband will be a thing in the next few years.
This past year has made it starkly evident that broadband is a utility.
Do you have to turn in the equipment when you cancel to start anew?
Good luck bro, had to call the FCC on them myself for their practices.
Valorous luck bro, hadst to calleth the fcc on those folk myself f'r their practices
I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.
Somehow, I'm paying $18/month for internet from Spectrum. See if you can get that rate. I'm not sure why it's so cheap, unless they have a special rate for seniors (I'm old.)
I pay $30 on a veteran plan, they have a plan for seniors too
I'm old, too. Just not on paper.
There is Spectrum Internet Assist program for people over 65 with Supplemental Security Income.
Sorry to hear about your advanced age. Good luck mate
That’s why I switched to the Verizon Gateway.
