I am sure, like me, many of you have had the debate about keeping a land line phone. When we originally had the debate at our house, our cell phones weren’t the best. Calls were often dropped or we couldn’t get phone service in certain places on the farm. We decided we would keep our phone service as is…plus, we get internet through our phone service and that created a whole new headache.
Fast forward to two years when our phone/internet bill started to creep up towards $100 a month. I got frustrated and called the phone company. They said rather than loose you as a customers lets give you a better rate of $65.00 a month. Well that sounded good so we kept the phone and internet with our phone provider.
Then came this month’s bill. It was back to $100!! WHAT!! I called in to the company and waited on hold for 30 minutes (no joke…30 minutes) The lady said sorry and she would transfer me to the right person. In the mean time I listen to recorded messages telling me what a “valued customer” I was (I am thinking if I was so “valued” hire another person so I am not wasting my time on hold)
Finally the gal comes on and was super nice. She explained that the program I was on was a two year program and that it was over. I explained that I was not paying $100 for phone service…I barely use it anymore as our cell phones now get service. Now the main thing we need is just internet.
The gal went on to explain that they have an internet only program….$39 a month. We can still call out using the phone…it’s just 10 cents a minute now…we can still call 911. WOW…that sounded like a great deal to me! So yep we still have our land line if needed…we still have internet and now we have it all cheaper.
I am sharing this as I think others might be in the same situation. Call you phone companies and ask about different packages that are available. There might be a package that meets your needs yet is a bit cheaper. Cheaper means more money and more money means more fabric!!
