Are you starting to recognize the increased costs for Cable and/or Satellite TV are exceeding their value?
Wondering if your neighbors are paying less for internet only than YOU are?
Do you know what options you have in your area and what the costs or “teaser” rates are?
I did. I went to Broadband Now and found that my neighbors were able to pay $20 a month less than I was… and getting faster speed… for the SAME provider! I armed myself with ammunition and had an honest talk with the loyalty department. They understood my point and were able to match the offer to my neighbors (new subscribers only) in order to keep my business. Had they not, I would have moved on to the better priced services available to me.
When price shopping or negotiating, remain calm and simply ask, honestly, what can be done to keep me. These conversations have also been productive for any service providers… Cable TV, Insurance Companies, Credit Card Rates and so forth.
