YAY!! I think I’ve solved my no internet problem!
Bright House became Spectrum, and raised their rate $20. Well, that left me out in the cold, since I’m paying off my credit cards.
THEN! I saw a Frontier truck in the neighbor’s driveway, and inspiration struck! It was like lightening!
I got all excited! So, I called them up, found out it was only $46 a month, only $6 more, instead of $20!!! A big woo hoo there!!
So, I asked XH, to pay over the phone, and gave him the $46. I was ecstatic!! Home internet in T-7 days and counting!!
That was on Tuesday.
Then on Monday, I get a letter in the mail. From Frontier.
Not looking good here.
It was worse than not good- it was horrible news! They said my credit wasn’t good enough to have service without a deposit, so they couldn’t serve me. What in the world was the $46, that I had already paid, which the guy TOLD me was a deposit???
I’m mad now.
(Can ya tell???)
So, I called and finally got a real live person. No, I didn’t unleash on her. I just asked for an explanation, of the contradictory info.
Her answer was, “Not enough signal strength” in my area. Uh, huh. And why then was I signed up for service, and charged on XH’s credit card???
She apologized several times. But all that hot air didn’t get me internet.
So, now here I sit here at SF’s, stewing in my own juices. (Trust me, it’s not a pretty picture.)
Frontier is not so friendly now.
(Back to the drawing board. The soaking-wet-from-all-my-tears, drawing board.)
