Feeling gouged by Spectrum pricing

first_imgSince Charter Communications purchased Time Warner Cable late last year, I have seen by monthly bill increase by 22.3 percent, even though my scope has not changed. I do have cable, internet and landline phone services furnished in a bundle, but that hasn’t changed in years. I see the “low-ball” pricing being offered by Spectrum to new customers, but not their existing customers. I’ve tried to negotiate with Spectrum, but they will not lower their monthly pricing in any significant way. I have complained to the state Public Service Commission and attorney general’s office to no avail. I tried the FCC, but they only assigned my complaint a case number. Short of unbundling the services we have purchased for many years, I don’t have an answer to Spectrum’s “gold standard” pricing practices. Does anyone else?Douglas N.
