I just dropped Spectrum (100Mbps) as the charges went from $55 to $65 per month for internet only service. I tried several times to have Spectrum return to the $55 charge with no desire on their part to change a thing. So, I will try Xfinity (150Mbps) at $49.95 for a year and see how that goes. I use my own Netgear modem/router.

We just tried that and $69/mo for 60 Mbps was the best they'd do. :-(

Can we all just hire you to negotiate for us????

I would think the other choice is Comcast. It was a little over $30 a month for a year with their Modem/Router. After making sure everything was up to snuff I bought a highly rated Motorola Modem/Router from Amazon and two Cheapo Extenders or Boosters. Great service so far. Now we pay $19.99 a month for the rest of the year. The service is 25 Giggawatts. We stream our Television now and have no problem.

I expect to renegotiate after the first year's contract is over. I start with the I'm quitting (Retention) department and show no sign of maybe I'll stay, be strong cause they will do anything to keep you. You don't have to accept their first offer. Tell then a little story about your neighbors and how little they pay with another company. It's a game so play the game.
