Kitties, mommy said that she was shocked a few hours ago getting a bill from her internet provider (bundled services, 'Net, TV and phone--NO added things. Just basic things) shot to a few dollars under 200.00 dollars a month which comes out to $2284.68 a year. It was bad enough but that about caused palpitations as mommy and me have the basic cable with NO added shows or anything. Nothing added whatsoever because she and I watch only 4 channels. And we aren't movie watchers (unless it is Star Trek stuffs).
Mommy called the place and got an out of Country call center of course. Mommy only asked why the bill shot up even higher than it was the month before.
Mom said for so little it was an awful jolt as the charges before that were just 10 dollars less! The person said they would give mommy $20.00 credit for a month so she could think it over. She told the lady no, keep the money as it wouldn't be right to accept it.
She didn't say to the customer service person that she would likely go on to one of those antennas that let you have about 14 channels. I will miss a couple of the ones I watch sometimes. We will get something else for a phone so we can keep our burglar alarm mom said. We are not sure about the 'Net yet. It depends on how much they charge just for that with nothing else. If it is awful, then mommy and me will have to say bye. That would make me, mom and Admiral very sads. BUT lets see how her substitutions work. And what "they" will charge just for the net.
