I had a wild hair up my butt today and thought about going to 1gb, but forgot it was only 50 up... I want higher upload

PSA to call your ISP regularly and see what deals they have. My promo ran out so I was paying $90 for 200Mb. 5 minute call later and it's down to $50. She offered 500Mb for $60 and 1Gb for $70, but said I would need to use their modems for that plan and it requires a technician.

I explained I have a nice modem, but she said they would need to do it. If she could just flip a switch I would sign up.

I upgraded my internet from 200mbps to 1gbps, and my price went from 95/month to 68 per month. So huge win here.

Spectrum doesn't offer anything other than new customer pricing. And they seem to know they have a monopoly in Maine so they don't even care if we threaten to cancel, since only other option is phone line at 15mbs instead of 100mbs

New customer switcheroo every 2 years between you and Sarah?

We are kind of in the same boat. Mediamcom that offers 100-1,000Mb or CenturyLink at 7Mb. Mediacom is still willing to play ball though.

I was jealous of Wilkins's new 1gb down and 60Mb up plan that I just signed up for it. Had to buy my own $85 modem. They are coming Friday to hook it up.

It is cheaper than the 200Mb plan I was paying before last week.
