    Sorry, I was wrong. You should have made sure your "facts" were right before posting in the first place.

    As I posted, I tried but my link no longer worked. I take it you never make a mistake.

    I once thought I was mistaken, but I was wrong.

    At the risk of dragging this back on topic, OP have you tried the magic words "I would like to cancel my account" ?

    Not yet, I literally just resigned up a month ago- no contract though. So we were paying $20 for business tv with time warner and that included a free box. Then spectrum business emailed me saying they had cheaper, faster internet and same tv prices. I got the bill and they chraged me like $17 for tv and then $7 for the box - so tv price actually went up a little bit. If I switch to cable card its only $1 a month, but more importantly I just want to use my old tivo just laying around.
    I might just have them do the truck roll and then argue the $100 truck roll fee after I get the bill. They still hinted they might waive the truck roll fee if I do it. Im just getting tired of playing games with them.

    I wouldn't doubt that in the 'fine print' of the Business Contract/Service agreement there's clauses that hint all maintenance and service be performed by 'the company'. I'd think it's well within their rights to specify this. The fact that they even allow 'your equipment' is maybe surprising. Is your modem and router supplied by them or yours.

    FCC CableCard rules might not apply. It's a 'commercial' establishment

    Always interested when i see these comments. Every time i look the cost of internet + sling / psvue package that *matches* what i get with cable comes to about the same price. I can save money by cutting channels. For most folks when i see this i assume what you really did is reduce your package at the same time you switches and it is the reduction in package that is saving the money more than anything else? Or am i off base?

    note, i do renogtiate my package every 12mo and push them down as much as i can, i never pay the stated rates (like 45% lower than stated rates)

    Around here there are no longer substantial discounts after the first year. Here, in apartment buildings, satellite dishes and antennas in common areas are Not allowed. The cable company (Charter/TWC) knows that and for the past several years has just said too bad, just pay.

    In the same community I had Spectrum Business at my office and Spectrum at my house. No self installs for Spectrum Business for anything but I can self install all day long on Spectrum at the house.

    Then you should have edited your post if that's what you think someone else should have done regarding a correction.

    You should have made sure you were right before posting in the first place.
