CTC

Cut The Cord -

A bit of a misnomer, actually.
If you are getting your Internet service from your local "Cable TV Company", you must STILL keep your "Cord" (coaxial cable), because it is ALSO delivering your Internet service, as well as your Cable TV service. You simply CANCEL the "Cable TV" portion of your account (the major $$).

Some cable TV companies will RAISE the price of your Internet service, after you do this, because, HEY!.

There is JUST ONE cable TV company available to you (a monopoly, as allowed by congress), so they revert to SPITE!

Don't you just love it?

Comcast pushed me over the edge, when they took away my TCM (old movies), and put it into a MANDATORY PAID, $10 MORE "Sports Package".

I CUT THE CORD !!
My bill went from $221 to $59, down 73 %, by paying just for Internet ONLY, and cancelling the "Cable TV" service!

DISCLAIMER:
This data was correct at the time of publication.
Please let me know if anything changes.

Cable TV is a UTILITY, period.
It should not be a license to rob you blind, just because 2 coaxial cables are not efficient, and therefore, NOT ALLOWED.

CONGRESS NEEDS TO ACT! Fugitaboutit.
The
Lobbyists will prevent that, by paying off all the congressmen.

Fight Cable TV RIPOFF

Pay FAR less for TV, by avoiding the ripoff prices of "Standard Cable TV", such as -
   - AT&T -      DirecTV  (#1),
   - Comcast -  Xfinity      (#2),
   - Charter -    Spectrum (#3),
   - Dish Net. - Dish         (#4),
   - Verizon -    Fios         (#5),
   - Cox -          Contour  (#6),
   - etc., etc. -

Vote for Elizabeth Warren from the C.F.P.B. - Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and put an end to the predatory pricing, forcing you to pay for tons of channels you DON'T want!.
