What will the long term implications be for "cable cutting"?
What do you see happening as a result of all the "cable cutting" going on?
I was paying a monthly charge of $270 for intenet, tv and land-line phone. The internet portion was $58 as part of the package, but now that I've gotten rid of the tv & phone services, they charge me $117 for the same internet service. The cable rep. told me to expect another price increase for the internet shortly as more and more peole cut their cable ties. I already have a bandwith limitation in place with my provider, which blows my mind. Why? A few years ago when they jacked my prices up, iwas told by a rep. that it was because of all the money they had to spend so that these limitations would not be an issue.
What do you see in the near (& not so near) future for consumers? For cable and internet providers? Will other options spring up?
