Hi, sorry to hear another story of rising rates. Did you post here to ask if others have ideas for an alternative service?

they raised ours..well we canceled tv part and said we can only get 100Mb for $100

149.97 to 171.06
canceled tv
94.98 for 100Mb and phone
switching to FiOptics for 56 and ooma for phone

I still say my neighbors should share. $100 for gigabit. If 3 neighbors then every year we can rotate to get promo rate.

Check out broadbandreports.com for other providers in your area. Charter Spectrum just raised my bill to $60 per month from $40 before. If you can do without the internet for a month, or just use your mobile data, I actually canceled my service. After 31 days, you can call and request the service to be connected again. They will give it to your for about $40-$45 per month for 12 months.

I only have 3 companies, spectrum, att, frontier. All charge minimum 70 dollars a month, spectrum gives 100mbps, att gives like 20mbps, frontier like 15mbps, yet all 70. Its a straight monopoly of pricing.

I called spectrum and biched up a storm. They dropped my bill to 55 for next year. When it expires, i'll call and bich again. Not much you can do then complain and hope
