1/1 Verizon DSL + phone for $63/mo. Yes, I know. It's a long story.

There's a separate thread for cell phone data speeds. I can't find it now.

I get all 3 services from optimum for about $150/month. Internet speed is around 15/5.

I called the retention dept earlier this week and got my bill lowered by about $40/month down from $190 but I'm still not happy paying this much...any chance another call to the retention dept could knock some more off my bill?

I also make 1 phone call per day to Verizon since I live in a 3-family house sandwiched between 2 apt buildings that BOTH have FIOS but my address is "unavailable" so I have them submit one of those stupid engineering requests every day(and no one ever gets back to me). Maybe one day I'll get through to someone who actually has half a brain...

U-verse retention.
If they wouldn't give it to me I would have just reordered service at the new customer rate by switching it to my wife's name.

how long would your internet be out when they cancel your internet before installing your wife's?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I'm sure you can convince then to waive it
