said by jap:He could have used the phone as CDV is a much better deal than the telco offerings, especially in an area that has not been upgraded to FiOS. Here, I can pay $65 per month for a pots line through Verizon or get CDV at a much cheaper price as part of a bundle. said by masterpjz9:
they pretty much price you into getting triple play
Yup, last week was helping a non-techy (85yo) weigh his Comcast options here in Durham,NH and the promos for the TV and internet package he wanted were
6 mos TV + Internet at $96 per then rise to going rate
12 mos Triple Play at $108 then rise to going rate.
He comes out ahead ordering the phone, never using it, and cancelling at the 12 month mark.
Hope the little subterfuge works for ya.
