COX overcharges the Low Income Seniors
I live in Sunrise Are NLV a year ago moved from L.A to L.V needed Internet Connection after an intense search my Husband and I ended up with COX COM. because there were no other Internet Providers where we live! We are Low Income Seniors, I contact the COX Rep. and asked her if there were lower internet charges for Seniors/ been told that charges for simple Internet started $39.99! We had no choice but accept. That was year ago. After 12 Mo. charges went up to $62.99 I couldn't believe it, $23.00 up We do not have DishNet or DirectTV don't need them, my husband installed an outside Digital Antenna we have all the 66 Channels including Local News. We need a simple Internet connection for PC and our Tablets! It is Brutal, have tried to get another Providers but COX has this area all for themselves. NO COMPETITION. Therefore they charge whatever they want.
I am not giving up, I will continue to tweet and put posts on Face Book until other Low Income Seniors also wake up and may be all together get the ATTENTION of City Hall! Las Vegas City Fathers should open City all the Internet Providers so that there will be COMPETITION which will lower the Internet Charges! I hope that Seniors where I live read this Post and they also REBEL against the COX COM. If nothing happens my Husband and I go to the City Hall meetings and tell to those Council Members to do something about this!
