Re: Helping Grandmothers
Um, there are cheaper plans... tell those you believe are overpaying to go with a lower tier of service...
Cox, for example, has 4 tiers. Prices are VERY reasonable for the lower two.
edit: DSL pricing is generally "tiered" as well. AT&T, for example, has some dirt cheap options.
I don't see anything wrong with the current pricing setup, other than lack of deployment/real competition in various areas.
If you can't afford "turbo" internet, there are still options that allow fast enough access to get by with (compared to dial up internet speeds).
UBB is a sham, plain as can be. There are no obvious benefits to customers, otherwise we'd have seen it years ago without any backlash. Instead, providers offered faster and faster speeds, and where available, have usually provided slower tiers at dirt cheap prices...
