So, just for calling and keeping with AT&T for 12 more months, I've got $455 less payments
Sounds like a win-win to me. Just curious, how much revenue are they going to book from you over the next 12 months?
It's clear that they want to keep TV subscribers, but based on my retention experience, they are not all that keen on people like me who only want internet. They offered me something like $5 off per month for six months, or cutting me down to a 3 Mbps plan for the same price I was paying for 12 Mbps.
On the other hand, I'm up for renewal with Big Cable in about a month and it's great to have a competitor with a good intro rate that will, with luck, convince them to match for another 12 months!
