Shouldn’t consumers be allowed to choose services they want?

on Tuesday, 03 April 2018. Posted in Editorials, Opinions

I feel sure you have noticed that some companies will spend enormous amounts of money advertising to get your business. The same companies will give you huge incentives to sign up or buy.....for a limited amount of time the discount will apply.

But, they will do little or nothing to keep your business when the perks expire.

One example is Spectrum. Since they took over my cable, internet and telephone bill (bundled service) has increased by more than 50% for the exact same services with zero pay-per-view or anything else. Surely they know they are not the only game in town?

Their advertisements brag about all the things they offer, and it is impressive, but I don’t need all that stuff. The way cable TV companies tier most of their channels is beyond my comprehension. There are exceptions to that such as sports.

I may not live long enough to see it, but we should be able to pick and choose the channels we want to have access to. I feel sure the technology is in place so that is doable.

Once again, they are not the only providers of their services. If you are like me and have exceeded an amount you can justify paying, let it be known and make your choices.
