Question about service and pricing

Im so sick of this $55 a month now. If i shut my service off and put in the name of someone else who lives with me who does not have the same last name as me will they pay the $29 a month price? What is involved in doing this?

Call CV to cancel service. Return the equipment. Call CV again and order service under different person's name, get yourself current promo.

They'll charge you a $30 installation fee.

No. They will require a truck roll. They will charge $20 install fee in addition to first month's service payable in advance with a money order once they install service at premises.

By the way.. Expect to be hassled and upsold by the fucking morons in the CV sales department. They tried to sell me a triple play insisting it was the only promo available. I had to log on to optimum.com and read the options to the idiot in order to get what I wanted, which was the Internet and video double play.

Or you can always order it online and save yourself the hassle of calling them. Truck roll and $20 install fee still applies though.

My property taxes just went up again, like they do every year, what can I do to beat the system? Maybe I'll put my house in my grandmothers name and receive a senior discount or move to a area with lower property taxes.

Call to cancel and your price will come down. They wanted to give me triple play with an upgrade to DVR storage space for $74 a month, and then when I told them no it went to $60 a month with an upgrade to the TV package as well.

See the reason i want to do this is a not just money but a point. The have been sending me weekly adverts in the mail to get the triple play from $69 to $89 this has been almost 2 years. But they wont give it to me because i don't have TV with anyone else. I would have taken the deal in the past but not now. We have not had any TV since thanksgiving 2010 and we don't miss it at all. I have even called and ask to not be sent the adverts but no luck. i got 3 of them in Feb alone. Now i just want to pay what my brother in pays. He is internet only too and paying $29 a mo! We have no need for TV or phone from them.

That sounds like a new customer promotion - first year price.

Perhaps try the same with your internet? If you miss it, you can come back to CV with new customer pricing, or signup with VZ.

Why not just dump them? Seems silly to throw away $29/mo on shit.

True - most people have to pay to have their shit taken away. Somehow CV gets people to pay for theirs. Maybe it smells good. But I wouldn't pay no matter how good it smelled.
