I rather get NONE and lower prices, after all off this Marketing that Cox cable is doing is crazy in the Middle Georgia area, they're no Competitors to go against Cox Cable so whats the point?
They have a Monopoly in the Middle Georgia Area IE charging the max for LESS unlike real Competitors that go against another and who has the best Service. the Baby bells Reagan broke up.
Mind you Cox Cable does have good service but at
$17.00 Basic cable
$69.00 Premier Internet even Preferred is up there not that much in price.
Cancel your service and have somebody else in your household take advantage of the current promo offer. I had 4 months left on my contract, just ate the ETF ($40) and got my internet bill reduced to $38 a month for premier, and TV $28 a month for economy.
The promo period lasts for an entire year. I'm not sure how much longer the promotion is. Get the triple play (phone included) so that there is no install fee, and then just cancel the phone a few days later.
I just did all of this last week, I estimate that I am going to save $250 over the next year.
The CATV subscription is going down entirely soon. I've already weened everybody in the house off of the advanced TV service, replacing it with a sickbeard/xbmc setup on all TV's. Sadly we lost the ID channel, but we're doing fine without it. If I found a viable replacement for 24 hour national news feeds, I'd drop it tomorrow.
I showed the cable guy my XBMC setup, and he asked me how to set it up so he could do the same thing. I mentioned how the new version of XBMC coming in a month or so will support full PVR functionality, except cox deliberately makes their service incompatible with it. I explained why and he sounded every bit as annoyed with that as I was. Thank god for sickbeard.
