Cable Tv Service Reviews in San Diego

I frequently have problems with picture tiling and audio
dropouts. Techs come out and replace cables and connections then things are OK
for a few weeks or months, and then I have to have them out again. I have been
paying the four dollars a month for the Service Protection Plan--“insurance”
for the interior wiring because it has to be worked on so frequently.
Now over the past few days it looks like the Internet
connection is slowing down—taking noticeably longer to load web pages.
But last week came what may well be the final straw. Got a
call from
. The guy was a bit
, asking me if everything was working OK.
I thought it was a follow-up to my most recent repair a couple weeks earlier,
but—as it turned out was kind of a scam sales call.
The caller explained that if I added the digital phone
service, the discounted bundle would take $20 off my monthly bill. I explained
that I had no use for the phone service; I’m on the phone probably less than
five minutes a month, and I have a pre-paid throwaway that suits me just fine.
No matter, he told me I could sign up for the service, get the discount, and
never even have to install the phone. He said the bundle would also include HBO
and Stars at no charge, taking another $15 off the monthly bill. I asked if
this was some promotion that would send my bill sky-rocketing when it ended. I
was assured it was not.
Of course as it turns out, most of that was simply not true.
Expecting my next bill to be maybe $110, I was really surprised when I opened
the latest bill yesterday, and it was more than double that!
There was a $50 charge for “professional installation”;
nothing was installed, professional or otherwise. The charge for hi-speed
internet access (which is not so “hi” anymore”) had increased by about $12, and
I was still being charged for HBO.
So I called customer service. Apparently there was a
promotion that expired this month which is why the Internet charges went up; everything
else was pretty much BS.
The woman I spoke with was very kind and helpful, but there
wasn’t a whole lot she could do except fix the obviously bogus installation
charge, explain things and pass my concerns up the chain—which she did—and ultimately
my bill is now within about $10 of the promised price. At least until this
promotion expires.
It is so frustrating that I have no alternative for hi-speed
Internet service, and for TV, the satellite providers are just as pricey with
worse quality. Even more so that--regardless of the provider--I have to buy several
hundred channels to get the dozen or so that I regularly watch.
