“ Charter charges more money for slower Internet on streets with no competition “

“ It's no surprise that cable companies charge lower prices for broadband when they face competition from fiber-to-the-home services. But an article yesterday by Stop the Cap provides a good example of how dramatically promotional prices for Charter's Spectrum Internet service can vary from one street to the next.

In this example, Charter charges $20 more per month for slower speeds on the street where it faces no serious competition. When customers in two areas purchase the same speeds, the customer on the street without competition could have to pay $40 more per month and would have their promotional rates expire after only one year instead of two. “

Yup, in-laws pay a lot more. They are only serviced by Spectrum.
In my neighborhood, frontier fios and spectrum cable are available.

It’s nice to be a cable monopoly.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Gas stations have the same power.
