Comcast and Cox are losing customers for voice and TV like crazy.

Thousands of cord cutters every month want nothing but fast internet. Cable companies are scrambling to try and make up for the losses. Maybe the tables are turning maybe they need to fix their incredibly shitty customer service.

and lower prices.

I cut 2 1/2 years ago, and have saved a tidy litle sum, plus I have MORE viewing choices.

The cable companies continue to prey on senior citizens who do not know any better. My 77 year old neighbor was still paying Cox 10 dollars a month for a email account until I told her she was being scammed. The CSR lady at Cox tried to tell the old woman that the $120 a year was for premium email and she needed to keep paying or her identity could be stolen.

They still have you by the balls because you need internet. Though 5G may change that.

You're gonna pay for internet access the same as what you used to pay for cable TV AND phone And internet. We don't care if you cut the TV portion - it's all the same to us, and there ain't shit you can do about it!

We have a great cell phone plan with several lines. We use one of the lines to create a hot spot for TV viewing and home internet access.

Phone, internet, and TV service for $59.99 per month.

I cut cable and phone long ago. Got a weak cell signal at home but do voice and text over Wifi. Only bad thing is when the internet goes out I got nothing but my own thoughts. One time it was out for two days.
