Re: "Undesirable" customers: Cogeco, Audet
said by battleop:The problem is that the portion of the customer base he is referring to has mistakenly (or intentionally incorrectly) been identified as promotion jumpers. It would not be surprising in the least to find out that many of the people involved jumped ship because they found a better deal elsewhere that had nothing to do with a promotion (--> TPIA).
You mean pissing on the portion of the customer base that you want to get rid of? I don't fit in that category of users that jump from promotion to promotion so I could care less if the CEO of the ISP I am using makes a comment about people who jump from promotion to promotion.
Although you claim you have not invested in Cogeco, if you routinely invest in companies who rely on sheeple as their primary source of income, and continuously offer substandard services for inflated prices, I'm surprised you EVER see a ROI - as uneducated as some people can be, the future is going to be populated by the technology-oriented youth of today - not the grandparents of yesterday who use their internet for email and facebook.
The monopolistic trend of telecommunications in Canada is changing (albeit very slowly) - those who do not change with the times and begin offering their customers value, will go the way of the dinosaur....
The telecom related investments I have are not in service providers. It's in companies that supply stuff to telecom companies. Guys who make fiber, copper, and other gear that's related to delivering their services.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
