I keep hoping that some internet provider will offer 30Mbps service at $30/month with no other conditions, like phone or TV. So I keep opening the envelopes and it is always the same old offer. For example Charter Spectrum offers up to 30Mbps internet at $29.99 per month when bundled with TV at $29.99 and phone at $29.99. The fine print also reads “for 12 mos”. The print is so fine that I can’t even determine if there is an abbreviation period after “mos”.
Well, the really fine print with all the conditions includes: “To reduce Charter direct mail, visit charter.com/dmoptout.”
I filled out the form without concern because it did not ask for any information that Charter didn’t already have, that is my name and address. It didn’t even ask why I wanted to drop out. Charter probably doesn’t want to read what I wrote above.
But maybe thousands of us could make a difference. If you think so, please pass on the link to this blog entry. If you pass the link to this entry, I'll see how well the campaign worked. Thanks!
