The last thing I wanted was another contract to deal with. I have one with my cell phone service that is annoying. I do not like being locked into a deal for one or two years. I do like the savings on the equipment, but I keep thinking about this volatile job situation and other things. That is why high speed Internet with no contract was very appealing to me. I wanted a good price with no long contract for Internet service. I did not want to be gouged just because I want Internet service on a month to month basis.
I do not see why people would go for that instead of a no contract Internet service. It is not like the company is out a lot of money hooking me up here. I already have the cables running into the house. All they have to do is hook up a modem and turn the service on. I have my own wireless router to give me Wi-Fi in the house. The modem for the cable Internet service is leased so they get it back if I close my account anyway. Then they can use it in another house.
This simple bit of logic got me to understand that those long contracts some places want you to sign up under are just a gimmick. Maybe they figure if they have you as a customer for a year or longer you will just forget and keep on paying them month after month. Not me! I am always looking for the best deal. Deals that are in my interest not the company I am a customer of. I do not want more than a fair bargain, but I do not want to be taken advantage of either. That is why high speed Internet with no contract is exactly what I was looking for now.
