INTERNET(DSL or CABLE) AND PHONE LINE
« on: June 16, 2008, 01:07:16 AM »
My promo for Cablevision is up this week. I was paying $45 including tax for Unlimited voice(phone line) and Internet service(cable) with Optimum online. IT IS GREAT SERVICE. As of next week they will start charging me around $85 for the two services. Does anyone know of a good reliable home phone deal and Internet deal out there. I am very sceptical with these voip things bc first off I need a fax and secondly people say they arnt clear.  LOOKING FOR A DEAL

Threaten to cancel.  Time warner roadrunner extended my 6 month promotional offer for another 6 months when I told them I was going to switch to DSL.

I have vonage VOIP which is perfectly clear (90Kbps if that means anything to you) and you can fax over it. It offers unlimited calls to US and Canada, and $.01/min to Israel.

yes but you have to pay for internet besides that... and that in itself could cost another $50 a month...

Threaten to cancel.  Time warner roadrunner extended my 6 month promotional offer for another 6 months when I told them I was going to switch to DSL.

Dan - I tried calling time warner and they refused to extend that 6 month promo....

Did you have the same thing as I did - I signed up for that 6 months promo of internet only for $29.99 a month - $150 rebate.... that you had posted once...

If you have the same as I do (No cable or phone service - just internet) maybe you could recommend what to do ?

I called them twice already...

Thanks.

I got it they were giving it for 12 months (2.5 years ago) so I canceled after the year, and signed up again on my wife's name, then I was having issues with slow speeds which they never really solved, so I got them to extend it

but I have spoken to many many reps, and it's pretty much impossible

so you cancelled and then you signed up again the same day with your wifes name and social using the same address? How were you a ble to keep your number? I would easily be able to do that If you could please explain how you did it.

1.did you do it same day?
2.Did you lose your original number?
3Im sssuming you had to return your modem and then they shipped you a new one, how long was your system down till you had new equipment and had it up and running?

1. No
2. I have Vonage (besides Vonage being cheaper, I also got Vonage for this exact reason)
3. I did it before I left for Tishrei, and signed up again after Tishrei (so I saved a month of service as well)

I never canceled Vonage, (I had it forwarded while I was away) and then resigned up for Optimum Online when I came back

as far as I know Vonage has Fax as well (you can even send faxes free with V-Fax)
