Advertisements In lieu of another DirecTV price increase.... My contract with my telephone company ran out a while back so I called them tonight to see what new services/packages were available. DirectTV could learn a lesson from my telephone/DSL provider. I called to see if I could improve the service I've been getting in the features arena and save some money at the same time, and I did both! I'm saving $3 a month for the next 24 months on my basic phone service and got a few features I didn't have, then on top of that an additional $10 a month for the first 6 months. So over the 24 months $72 + $60 = $132 in savings. As for my SDSL with static IP addresses I had 768/768 for $35 a month, I'm now getting 1M up and 1M down for $25 a month plus $15 off for the first 6 months. So over the 24 months $240 + $90 = $330 in savings. For a grand total of $462 in savings over the next 2 years. Man I wish I had more phone calls like that. All this for a existing customer and not a new customer. DirecTV only seems to give the really good deals like I just got to new customers. Wish DirecTV would start providing more service at less cost!!! If TDS Metrocom can do it I see no reason DirecTV can't do it. Unless of course, you're greedy..
