Big jump in rates from Cox this month - 24.00 a month more. I've about had it with them. I don't need the highest internet speed - what is everyone's second choice?

There's a second choice?

You could try Clear (good luck), CenturyLink DSL (better than Clear, but if a stable connection is important to you, forget it) or a cellular hotspot or similar.

I'm a bit of a techie, and I know my way around a network. Cox isn't cheap, but their service is top notch. They'd have to raise their rates quite a lot to get me to drop their residential service, and there's not an ISP in the valley that I'd drop our business connection and leave Cox for, regardless of price.

Oh - I almost forgot - CenturyLink has announced that they're starting to roll out fiber in certain parts of the valley. I don't know what they're charging, but the service should be quite good.

How do you get a $24 jump in your bill? I'm thinking you must have lost some sort of promo rate, no way just a standard raise in rates is that high.

That's what I was thinking. It's the exact reason I don't take the "Free HBO" for 6 months, because I always forget to cancel. Actually, it is probably at a year mark from when you either renewed or signed up. It happened to us, losing one of the bundle rates. We re-upped for a year and found a plan that worked for us and brought it back down.

Same for me. Internet only service, no change.

I have now received 4 months in a row (one each month) of violation letters for exceeding my 300GB cap (upload + download > 300GB). They must have started sending these out four months ago because my usage hasn't changed; so far they have taken no action other than the notices. Hopefully Centurylink gets gigabyte service out to me before I get cut off.

Yeah, I have been going waaaaay over that cap.

It's ridiculous that they cap it at all.

Mid tier used to be 5-10mb/s, now it's 25mb/s.

Centurylink -- no real speed to speak of. But since I don't care to download movies and such, I don't need it. It's cheap. And my downtime over the past seven years amounts to a few days worth. Maybe a week of no 'net over seven years.

I'm not happy with them. But I'm not particularly UNHAPPY, either. And I'm not about to move to Korea or Hong Kong to get decent internet.
