What companies advertise one rate but will give you a lower one if you ask?
So, COX, our internet provider just had another rate increase this last month which put it up to $52/mo. Last year at this time, we were paying $44/mo. A 20% increase seemed a bit harsh so I started looking around at other servers. This would be like the 3rd increase in 2 years. I found that AT&T had a pretty good plan although a bit lower Mbps rate for $9 less per month. Anyway, I decided to call COX to see if they'd be willing to reduce their monthly charge or I'd switch to AT&T. Well, they reduced my bill to $42 after about 25 minutes of talking to them and basically saying that I was fixing to switch. Anyone know of any other companies that do things like this? Although I understand increasing prices like 3-4%, I'm just a bit frustrated with big increases like this.
