Sounds a little like Frontier

I recently moved back to Frontier Fios and went just with their internet. I was told in order to get installation waived and the 2 year price lock, I had to have the "security calling" feature for a couple of bucks a month. It's only outgoing 911, no incoming or outgoing to other numbers.

My first bill came and I noticed I also have a $3 charge for an unlisted phone number. For a phone number that I don't have and that I can't receive calls on.

I hope you don't mind that I chuckled into my ale when I read that. Classic maneuver. It's all gotten so premeditated petty. There. I've coined a worthy phrase. Draft a fake summons from your local state district court advising them to appear in response to accusations of Premeditated Petty.

Christ, they've gotten us so pinned to the mat we at least deserve some fun. Any reasonable judge would agree.

The stupid "security line" is optional for you? Cool!
Here Bell is raping the clients by having it mandatory. 8$ dry-loop fee on top of your internet connection, just to keep the 911 dialing option.

It's like $56 for 35/35 service with a 2 year agreement and the security line. Or like $54 without the contract or 911. It was a gamble on whether my rates would go up by $2 over the next 2 years, plus I have several kids at home after school that I don't mind paying a few bucks extra in case my VoIP acts up.

Everyone can make the decision for his/her own. People have cellphones (sometimes multiple) as a backup in the rare case that VoIP is down. I don't need a second backup, but unfortunately it's not an option.
