I had a similar experience. Verizon finally had a promotional rate of (basically) $55/mo. for 24 mo., which is better than the $58/mo. that TWC was charging. The difference is, TWC won’t come close to touching the 25Mbps upstream of FiOS (it’s technically possible, just that it becomes technically difficult or kind of expensive to provide that much to large numbers of subscribers). So I had FiOS installed, and called them up to disconnect Internet, after about 15 years of {TCI of NY, Adelphia, TWC}. As you can imagine, the rep countered with 30/5 or something similar for a little more than I had been paying per month, but having committed for 24 months to Verizon already, it was a fait accompli. Besides, as I say, the 25 upstream is what I wanted for backups, and they’re not prepared to offer that.
