So I just got taken advantage of by Brighthouse Networks for cable and internet service.
I wanted ATT since I have wireless thru them but they don't offer internet it in my area which is insane since my friend lives in the middle of
nowhere and gets it and yet I live in a city and it's not available? They also wanted a $500 deposit for the DVR boxes (they better be golden and
have free services attached for that price). I will not pay that much for a DVR and I have never had to pay a deposit for such things, insane! Oh and
the kicker is they pay you back a few dollars every month. They don't hold it. So I have to pay 500 upfront yet they pay me back at their convenience
and the amount they want. HECK NO! Yes I know if I want cheaper service pay the deposit but I dont have 500 extra lying around for that! If I did I'd
pay it and NOT with a smile either.....
ATT wanted $65 for cable and internet and I know will be charged $140+tax thru Brighthouse.
Brighthouse is HORRIBLE! I have never liked them or their prices, they are ridiculous. They didnt even offer free movie channels for a few months like
ATT, nothing! I dont have deposits which is how it should be for heavens sake. Half the time the ondemand services never work or when you order a
movie it says "sorry this is not available" yet they charge you for it and its a 30min argument to get it taken off your bill. I am not looking
forward to that at all.
Im so beyond annoyed! I don't like the monopoly some of these cable companies have. You have no choice most of the time to go with them and they are
horrible and overpriced!
I am paying double now for the same services!! DOUBLE!
I realize some will say oh then don't have cable and I will more than likely cancel it after Dexter
but internet I have to have and I was willing
to just get internet via ATT but they don't offer it in my area so I had to go with Brighthouse.....
GRRRR on you Brighthouse!!
