Re: [billing] Went up 3 bucks! :þ Ayup, here too.
3Mbps service with POTS sans LD, btw.
It spurred me to finally take them up on (take a chance on) their Double Play Package w/Regional Essentials ($44.99).
It was "activated" a week ago ... so far, so good.
Billing for my new Plan has now settled down.
My monthly bill was $74+ (after the quiet $3 increase) and now it is $55+. This year I will save $228 with the new Plan. BTW, apparently, the new rate includes a $5/mo discount that will continue for a year.
I have continued my habit of monitoring and logging thruputs morning & evening and I have experienced no changes in the speed patterns since the change.
