About a year ago, I switched from Time Warner Cable to RCN, because they were offering a special promotional price on the bundled package, where you get phone, Internet and cable TV service.
That promotion ended last month and the bill shot up about $30 a month, so, of course, I switched back to Time Warner, because they had a good offer to lure me back, and also, I sort of missed NY1, the 24-hour New York cable news channel, which is a Time Warner station, so doesn't air on RCN cable.
I just got a call from "Becky" from RCN asking what she can do to lure me back. (And, no, I didn't make any lewd suggesions). Anyway, I kvetched a little about their prices, and played hard to get, I'm very happy with TW, yadda, yadda - and she practically begged me to reconsider. Then said she was going to draw up a special price plan and email it to me and if I go back they will make it worth my while.
Competition is good.
