My ISP is insane. - Page 2

post #11 of 56
Make a complaint on the BBB, write a letter to the chamber of commerce in your area about the monopoly, and see what other goverment agencies you can contact to get rid of the prices or the monopoly.

Option 2 is get a business line. They are around $50-100 usually, but have huge bandwidth and no limits.

So you can get a higher usage limit, you just have to buy their more expensive packages. The 18 plan might be a break even proposal if you stick to 300GB/month (additional $40 on your current plan for extra usage).



Which just sucks.

lmao john, they seem really horribly mediocre, like some 15 yr old is splicing his line n charging insane amounts to other people to make up for his usage costs

even my isp has whats called "usage insurance plans" which is extra usage of up to 200GB over your limit for like 5$ a month, talk with them first, if they dont offer up an alternative it seems u need to talk to the BBB, because they are trying to screw over thier customers

I've been calling Qwest/CenturyLink about once a month (after I get my bill) asking if they are in my area yet. They respond with "Yes! We have several dial up speeds available."

i also know someone in the area that has CL/Qwest service...

I live in a quest/CL controlled area (i'm not kidding, there are absolutely NO other landline based services operating where i live), and am stuck with a measly 1.5MB. i can go 5 miles in any direction and get faster speeds, and CL isn't doing Squat to upgrade the service where I live.....

Say what you will about them, but my view isn't going to change unless they start laying new cable in the next month......
post #18 of 56
Hmm, its expensive, but if that is their deal then there isn't really much you can do...

Jacking up your contract cost however, that's not cool, If I signed a contract for exactly $50 per month, I wouldn't pay if it increased every month...

I know you said Wave is the only company where you are, but have you checked with Comcast & Verizon? You must live in a strange place in Seattle : \.

Agreed with the other folk here: talk to the BBB...and if you're renting, considering moving to another area of Seattle (I know that's extreme...but getting reamed by cable companies is no fun, and hell, moving's therapeutic)
