You're right. We figured that out last night. So, I called Armstrong back today and switched back to what they call the TV economy package- local channels, etc.. The customer service rep checked our data usage and advised us to stay with zoom and upgrade to pro later if we felt we needed faster speeds. She explained how I could buy more data, as you recommended. I gave her a target price for our monthly bill, and she made every effort to meet it. So here's my experience with Armstrong:
1)Customer service was excellent. They worked with me to meet our budget for services and price. I wasn't pressured to spend more. In fact, the rep advised we try out what we ordered and change it later if we want- how many companies do that?!
2)At 250 GB (with 3 services) Armstrong's data cap is actually higher than some of the satellite and DSL packages I researched. I still feel kind of hamstrung, though, by having to buy 3 services in order to get more data.
3)The fact that there's no contract involved makes it easier to switch services, try them out, and change them over time. The rep's advice to see how things go before upgrading was refreshing. I'm satisfied.
...I'm going to miss that PVR.
said by woo :
Didn't the price of your internet go up by $10 because you completely cancelled the TV service?
So basically, $10 more will give you 15 channels and the increased download limits by 50 GB. In addition, you can pre-pay for extra data usage. An additional $15 will boost your limits if you truly need it. I just went through a similar thing. Cut back to the $22 plan. Seems worth it to me.
