NO, this is not an advertisement.
This is a user. Normally my accountant pays the bills and I just haven't noticed what's happened to my charter bill. When I set it up it was $115.
Based on what I see for their current promotions it's $99
When I call them to discuss it I get huge wait times and rude people who refuse to do anything.
Yes, I know about promotions and increases and all the other thievery, but really, is there no other alternative?
Why am I asking this here? Because I figure most of you have either felt the pain and solved it, or feel it now. I would really like to NOT do business with Charter, but I can't get DSL. i figure if anyone would know the answer you would.
Can I get high speed over satellite or a cellular solution or something else? I know I can get TV. But what about internet? I have 10 down and 1 up now with charter and I'd really like more up speed. If I had 10 up and down and static IPs I could decommission $200/mo of web servers at a host.
Of course, that would lead to a question on how reliable is this kind of service?
And who is your favorite provider? I'm in 29681 (SC) if it matters.
As always, thanks in advance.
another frustrating thing about charter is that I haven't been getting more than basic cable for the last 3 months because their used beat to hell box they put in here crashes all the time and getting w/ Charter to fix it is more trouble than it's worth and I just haven't had the time lately, with the 'moving to mythtv' I've been going thru I'm going to trade up for a HD box anyway to get firewire.
