Comcast: Lower Your Prices Or Lose More Customers

Dear Arrogant Monopolistic Cable Operator:
The day of reckoning is upon you. Your formerly monopolistic power has been drained by years of failed mega-mergers, media plays, satellite providers and gross mis-management. Your cash cows are showing signs of Mad Cow Disease.
The final straw for me is your incredibly pig-headed strategy of price inflexibility on your high-speed Internet service. I pay what I consider a ridiculous amount every month for what is a necessary service for me. Now I see that your Telco competitors are slashing prices every way they can to win back business.
I read that you will lower your price if I call you and threaten to move to an alternate provider. But only for 3 months.
You really need to step back and realize how dead your business is going to be in 2 years.
I live in the testbed for fiber-to-the-home in Massachussetts. Every day, Verizon linemen, training to string fiber to every home, drive up and down our street, leaving spools of high-speed goodness on every corner.
They say that in a year, I can have incredible speeds to my home, for less than what I pay for your high-speed Internet service.
So, Mr. Cable Operator (you have to be a man, because only a man would be this pig-headed), what are you going to do to keep me a customer?
Sincerely,
me

  1. Bravo! I couldn’t agree with you more. I pay their insane monthly fees and count the days until Fios (great service, horrible name) goes live in my neighborhood. Lump in the cell phone operators as well. As soon as WiMax APs become ubiquitus I plan on putting together a wireless cooperative to provide all my data needs. When that’s a reality my mobile voice services will be provided via SIP client back to my Asterisk PBX. My wireless voice AND high speed internet access (ANYWHERE) monthly charges will be less than $50/mo combined. I’ll not shed a tear when the mobile operators and cable operators go toes up. The way I see it, they’ve fleeced us for long enough and deserve no sympathy. That could lead me into the RIAA, but I’ll refrain.
