I am locked into Optonline not by choice, I have tried to switch but have been informed by other providers Optonline has a contract with the town. I feel it is a restriction of free trade and a most certainly should be considered illegal!
I also feel most cable providers abuse their power over us, the services should/could be more modestly priced. Many are not old enough to remember, when cable first became available many jumped on it. It offered better reception more channels best of all was -0- commercials, you really got a bang for you buck. Today they can't get enough out of us, they throttle connection speeds forcing upgrades in service. My provider now has three speed packages, there needs to be more free market so we can again get a decent bang for the buck.
