Re: doesn't make sense

said by crazyk4952:

I don't understand, they recently dropped the price on their highest HSI tier, increased the throughput from 60Mb to 100Mb. Now they are raising the price..... sounds like they can't figure out what they are doing!

At the end of the day back in Novemebr just a mere 2 months ago someone on Ultra was paying $100 a month for 60 Mbps. In March they'll be paying $88 for 100 Mbps.

AND of course, this is in addition to the modem rental fee increase from $5 to $7 a couple of months ago....

Most of these modems are new docsis 3.0 modems which are more expensive. Also the modem price had been $5 a month for several years.

Right, so why didn't they just make it $88 in the first place.

Also, I was renting a DOCSIS 3.0 modem for $5, then then raised this to $7. The fee has nothing to do with DOCSIS 3.0. It is just an arbitrary way that they can increase the cost to most customers without having to change their advertised price.

would have made more sense. We are talking about Charter though.

Want to avoid rental fees BUY your own modem. Unless you're in the habit of changing ISPs doesn't make sense to rent a modem.
