You might remember that back at the end of May I gave up my commercial TV business with Time Warner. I had had it with poor customer service coupled with jacked up prices - my last bill was $180.00. Seriously, even if I won the lottery, I would not feel that commercial TV is worth $180 a month. I should mention that internet service did come with this, but, as I would find out, that's only a $60 value.
Even though I'd given up commercial TV, I still needed internet both to send emails, update Facebook, post blogs, etc but also to catch various shows. AT&T, my cell phone provider at the time, promised a pretty sweet deal - my cell phone and internet service for about $100. That was one of those "can't believe that" and without going into all the details, it wasn't true. This is why AT&T was my cell phone provider at the time, but not after this problem.
So, I was back to square one and so I sucked down my pride and went back to Time Warner for my internet. That would cost me $60/month which is also a little pricey but I was willing to go with it until I could find a comparable service.
