Re: Good Retention experience

said by tberg:

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!

I dropped from $134/month to $99/month. Plus 100 more channels and HD.

The competition is keen for TV service, with att, cable, dish and directv all looking for business. it easily costs them $400+ for a new customer with install and equipment.

There are usually only two high speed providers in an area, cable and telco. I expect those prices to go up soon. We have something new called OMGFast, but not too much about reliability, which is key for me.

Depends on the market I guess, I had 18mb for $53 and I called to see if they had a better deal since comcast is advertising 20mb for $30 for a year, they came back and gave me 24mb for $31.50 (50% reduction), for a year. I have internet only.

I am also in South Florida. Where can I see that offer? I just see $30 for six months, then it almost doubles.

I called and asked for retention, and then I told them I had an offer from Comcast for 20mb for $30 a month, per year. Its not on their website.
