As a Thank You for Renewing Your Contract, You get to Pay More Each Month!

July 5, 2006 at 10:58 pm 3 comments

That seem to be the message that Yahoo/AT&T DSL is telling me when I called them to renew my contract. For the same service, they told me I would be paying 88% more per month (WTF). After negotiated with them for several minutes, they lowered the rate to 18% more per month. That’s still unacceptable. The alternative is to cancel the service then sign up for it again and be paying 24% less per month. The trade off for cancel the service: 30 minutes to sign up for service again, a few days without internet, and another 30 minutes to set it up.

It’s more hassle but I think I can live without internet for a few days.

    It is a hassle, but they lure you in and then jack the price up. I’m paying $50/month for comcast but am thinking of switching as well.

    only if google ruled the world, fiber and WiLAN would be free and unintrusive ads will be everywhere, but hey, at least it’ll be free! 😛
