$70 for new customers only, and then only for 1-2 years, After that its ~$200/mo.

I saw this today too, very disappointing.

All of the cable/internet companies do this and they do it because you are no longer locked by a contract. New customers have at least a 12 month commitment and have fees to pay if you cancel before that time. It is pretty annoying though. Its a good idea to switch ISPs every now and then if you have decent choices.

Romania. The connection is also rock solid, and i mean it NEVER dies - it doesn't matter if all hell breaks loose outside i'm still connected and having the best speed possible However they do automatically reset your ip every month or so but they also offer free DNS service so its all good for those like me running a teamspeak server


You guys should really do something about those ISPs cause ripping you off is an understatement.

Not really different from any other plan today, you just need to threaten to switch service and they'll renew, or actually switch service for 1 month and then restart as a new customer. Again, you should be doing this already or else you're paying more than you need to.

People's Republic of Chicago, where Comcast and AT&T rule the land. I have Comcast 75/5 for $74/month here. They basically have a political chokehold on the city and if anyone has any better alternatives please let me know!!!
