Re: [AZ] Price Increases, No Speed increase mentioned.

I have an older modem. There won't be any speed boost. And with the ever rising cost if it wasn't such a ripoff to drop a tier, we'd drop to Essential in a heart beat. But $15 drop from $56 to $42 causing a "rated" speed drop from 18 to 3 is a ripoff. If it was at least 10Mb, we'd do it.

When we signed up with cox, it was $45 for Preferred. Soon will be time to drop cox phone and switch to something like magic jack to get the cost back down.

I use obi100 with google voice. Never pay any monthly fees ever. Even works with my fax machine.

There's got to be a subscription required and can you port your current # over to this? Right now, my phone costs $12.12 a month.

Google voice doesn't cost anything. Yes you can port your number, I think it is a one time $10 fee or something like that. And if you're with cox, your phone costs you $20 a month after taxes, fees, etc. Only thing is with google voice you don't get 911, but I only have a fax machine connected to it so nobody would pick it up and try to dial 911 with it (cell phones do that job better anyways.)

Anyways, I just realized the 3mbit tier is $42 a month! Holy ripoff batman. I hope a new ISP comes around when my $32 a month premier deal runs out next year.

In fairness to them, they are not charging us extra fees for HD, they could easily charge $10.00 for HD content. But choose not to.

Yeah look at the cost of an HD receiver. $8.50 per month.

TV is stupid for what you pay for it, especially given that you have to pay to get commercials. I'm glad I don't really watch it any more.

my local channels through COX is $26,00 the same Channels through Satellite is $4.00.. I will be canceling that expensive tv package in the near future within 1-2 months.

for those of you that want a home phone get a Land line. its been the same price through windstream for 30 yrs. but yet cox has to over charge its customers BS.

Google voice with an Obiahi 100 purchase cost you about $35 for the entire year. Sooo many alternatives that work very well.

I mean what the hell is this and cox wants to charge out the **** for their services...... $35 a year for phone cox listen up people are getting mad at you, you're screwing over the customers that leave you in business... i know 5 people that will be canceling their Cox Internet cox phone and TV to go with windstream/ phone/dishnetwork.

Windstream isn't available here.

Besides, $12.00 a month is cheaper then what Cox or any one can provide

I have a linux computer running VDR and 5 ATSC tunners (2 duals and a single). I can record all the locals at the same time. Not that there is that much on.
