So my girlfriend and I live in an apartment complex, and like alot of apt complexes, atleast here, they contract out to certain companies to provide residents with TV,phone and internet. On the "cable" side it is a Dish Network sub contractor named Blue Top Communications. We have a bunch of dishes installed in one location and fed to all the apartments. Imagine what great picture quality we get![/sarcasm] Dont even get me started on customer service..lets just say they left us with out a box for 3 weeks..Now the internet side is handled by ATT. They rip us off by charging us $40(it was $37 but they just raised the price) for 6Mbps when my cable company sells 10Mbps for $35. Now they want to cap there internet at 150 GBs a month. For us thats just not enough since we do not have TV.
We have been trying our best to manage the internet this month as to try to get used to staying under the 150GB cap as we have 3 strikes to go over before we get charged overage fees.
We looked in to getting the Samsung Galaxy Tablet. We have no need for a Tablet but we were thinking that it would use a $30 unlimited package like my D2G and her iPOS 4. When I realized how much of a rip off the data packages were we scrapped that idea quickly.
Just wondered if any one has any ideas on how we might be able to get around the cap in some way? I am waiting till Monday to look in to getting an ATT Small Business DSL plan. Its $5 more a month then residential plans but well worth it if they do not cap us. Plus it would get us the advertised price for 1 year which is actually what we are paying right now since we are not on the advertised price and ATT knocked us down to $30 a month when I threatened to cancel my service because of the cap. Moving MIGHT be a possibility but I probably wont know till Monday at least but just trying to come up with ideas just in case.
