Ahh.... Cable TV drives me crazy. : (
I started my contract in early 2007 and I m paying a little bit more than $300 for internet, TV and a landline. They told me yesterday that the expiry date was October 2008 or so (probably around 18 months after the start). Since then I m in a monthly plan that can be cancelled at any time. All good, but... I m moving within my estate. According to their call centre agents / supervisors I have no chance but to commit to a new contract - minimum duration 24 months - in order to keep the price which is a very special VIP thing bla bla bla....
If not I would need to switch to their monthly plan which would cost more than $600 per month, an additional relocation fee would occur, too.
What the heck? I questioned this thing and I was told that everything in Hong Kong is expensive now and therefore this special rate would not exist any longer... ahhhh. Anybody with the same experience?
I even told them I would consider to switch to a competitor - but they didnt care. : (
