AT&T U-Verse vs Bright House Cable Update


Last week I was very excited to share that I would be saving money by switching my cable from Bright House Cable to At&T U-Verse.  


After all was said and done, I would be saving close to 60.00 to 70.00 dollars a month.  Sounds pretty good right?  I thought so.  Well, I got a phone call from Bright House on Monday.  They want me back.  Big Time.  They are offering a sweeter deal for a longer period of time.  They will give me the same amount of channels plus two Movie Channels, the two DVR's (which I didn't have before) the fast cable, and the home phone PLUS a FREE MONTH of SERVICE for ..... (drum roll please.......)  119.95 per month!!!  Lets just say I did not hesitate to make the switch back to Bright House.  They will be here on Thursday to re-do the boxes and the phone and internet. 

I called AT&T to see if they could beat the deal... but they could not.  They could only offer a similar deal for 6 months and there was no free month.   Now, I am hoping for a smooth transition and must confess, I do like Bright House better.  Learning all the Channels on AT&T was a bit overwhelming!

Wow that's fantastic! They must really love YOU! Up here in the snowy cold north of Canada there is such a huge monopoly of these services it really SUCKS! However, I here that things will be opening up soon, more competition from a wider variety of providers and boy will I be ready to make a SWITCH!

Perfect!!! I am sure that in the end, the person on the other end at AT&T doesn't blame you either ;)

I don't think we have AT&T U-Verse but I'll have to check it out. I'm tired of the cable and internet bills increasing so often!
