Wideband Ultimate Price Decrease?

I am seeing (at least for my area) that the 50 / 5 tier is now "only" $20 more than turbo ($10 more than the extreme tier). Are any other divisions seeing this? Quite tempting.

maybe tied to the ultimate 75 tier project? I know that TWC has it set at 89.99 promo here so maybe they are lowering ultimate 50 to make room for the new tier?

awesome news, If this is the case in the Charlotte,NC I will be switching to 50/5 , no point in 75/5 imo, unless it goes 75/10.

The price only dropped $5 The full price used to be $99. Now its $94.99. The price for the other tiers went up so it looks cheaper in comparison

Wideband is now $74.99 for us, $64.99 for extreme, $54.99 for turbo. When i got extreme a few months ago it was an extra $30 to go up to ultimate. Again, this may only be for Maine/NH market..was just wondering if other areas saw it.

Hmm interesting.. I'm on the Ultimate/Wideband right now and I'm paying $79.99 for it. When I go to their site it lists it for $74.99. Worth noting I'm in Columbus, OH.
You can also get a $100 Visa reward card too:

That screenshot looks like it is for new customers. If you login to my services it may show current pricing / non promo. Since I am on extreme my services shows I can switch to wideband for an extra $9.98 a month where as it always used to say about $30 extra. I have never seen promo prices displayed in My Services for current users.

That is true. I can't see what the non-promo prices are since I'd have to call in to downgrade my service from the looks of it.

Not always. If you're not on a promo, it would be in your interest to call up and haggle a bit. Then you can end up on the promo price.

Turbo + $20 or Extreme + $20? My Services for current users upgrading services never displayed promo pricing. Also, where it displays + $9.98 more per month for me, it does not show per month for 12 months which makes me think it is the market rate now (used to show + $20 or $30).

The upgrade path did cheaper where it was $20 for turbo $30 for extreme and $50 for Ultimate. Now its $10, $20 and $30, but the base price went up. The upgrades were add ons to the standard rate, which used to be $49.99 - $20 that gave you the popular $29.99 rate. From what it looks like now is standard is $64.99- $20 = $44.99 for the new promo rate. If you are on any promo rate at this time you are going to get a good deal on the upgrades once it goes away its going to get expensive.

Hhhhmmm..not on any promo. Just have TV and internet bundled. Extreme is an extra line item on my bill for a $20 upcharge (since my bundle contains standard internet). So as it is, if I upgrade to ultimate now, the upcharge will simply become $30 instead of $20. Hard to justify it unless they increase the upload speed to be honest.

Yeah the extra download is kind of worthless unless you have a whole family streaming movies or stuff like that
