So Comcast has this Internet/Cable/Telephone service bundle that they were charging me $125 a month. Why so expensive?
Just one freaking coax into my place for that much money each month? This is monopoly pricing here. But there wasn't much I could do before Magic Jack. So when I got my first MJ a few months ago, I contacted Comcast and asked them to remove the cable and the phone service.
Well, they weren't going to let me go easily and talked me into keeping the Internet/ basic cable/phone service bundle for $100. I went along because I was sending my MJ to my brother who lives in Bangkok and I need a land line. After procrastinated long enough I got my 2nd MJ up and running and I'm ready to take down Comcast. So today, I called to have the cable and the phone service removed.
First she tried to scare me by saying that Internet service alone is $54.95 a month. I said that sounds good to me. Then she tried to offer me a deal with basic cable and the phone for 73.99. So they basically dropped the current price of $100 to 73.99.
I knew that these bastards were making money off me. I said no. So she pretended to be looking up another deal for me and came back with Internet and phone for $52.99 a month. I verified with her that it's $2 cheaper if I'd get the Internet/phone service bundle over the Internet service alone.
She said yes. I went along, but then I realized that they will jack up the bundle price after a certain amount of time. So I asked her how long is this bundle price in effect. She said 6 months.
I knew that the bastards will come back and get me somehow. But I went along anyway because I'll be moving and will cancel the service altogether. I kept the phone service because it's $2 a month cheaper, not because I need it. Then she had the nerve to offer me basic cable for $10 a month after all these.
LOL. These people have more tricks up their sleeves than you can shake a stick at.
The bottom line is with MJ, I can tell Comcast or the phone company to stick it up their a**es with their phone services.
