Re: [DSL] Dropping Modem rental
I tried dropping the modem rental a week ago. I even talked to the supervisor. She basically said it is a required rental.
I believe it is fraudulent to call it a rental, even if they do call it a hotspot or whatever, because they show the price for service without the "hotspot" included. It is ridiculous that they do this. My guess is that they are doing it because they are getting away with it. We all just need to start calling the responsible consumer protection authorities.
I'm going to try contacting my State's Attorney General (Consumer Protection division) about this. I may also bring up the idea of a municipal ISP at my city's next city council meeting. White Space looks like it will be a great fit, and provide service much cheaper than the *sshole CEO's at Frontier.
