this is true even for internet if you're a cord cutter. I had gigabit for $50 and it went up to $80. they told me even the new customer rate for 300 mbps wouldn't get me there. we need more competition. fiber please come through and crush the buildings
I understand your sentiment, but fiber gonna come in and tax too. These companies gonna get they money. No matter how much (or little) these companies can charge, their goal is to maximize profits.

It feels better for customers to at least see the value in paying a higher price for a premium service, but once we get comfortable the rates go up

I'd say fu*k them and cancel the internet also if they don't wanna budge.


















Then go back to them when the promotional rate for the new company expires.

I’ve seen Walgreens put to many cvs out of business round here but 50% drop and a new launch. Sounds like a play.

Watchin AMC crumble today might grab some shares. Been on the sidelines last couple weeks launchin new store. Hope to b back with some plays next week
Walgreens. Walgreen Company or simply Walgreens is an American company that operates as the second-largest pharmacy store chain in the United States behind CVS Health. ... Under the terms of the purchase, the two companies merged to form a new holding company, Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc., on December 31, 2014.

Can’t wait for the tears of the “fu*k net neutrality” people.


We had a chance to stop this sh*t. Cable company reapers already here. On the bright side, the Golden Age of Piracy on its way back.

of course they're in it for profit, too, but more competition and higher speeds is good for the consumer.

How did you start out with investing?
I started by losing money on e trade $4.95 a trade back in 2011

but with apps like robin hood or Webull you can simply start with $5 a week

recently I've but short on funds so i've been investing $25 a week in LYG buying 2 shares a day

first thing you want to do is decided what you want to do with the markets , you have day trading who watch closely for quick flips, then you have your quarterly or weekly traders who flip stocks every few weeks or days @ works with those I do them every once and a while if I see something but that's time consuming constantly watching. this is high risk and high reward or loss

I like to dividend invest long term where I find stocks I like with growth potential that give quarterly dividends for each share I own, a dividend is just the company giving you money 4 or 12 times a year simply for owning it .this is medium risk for high reward overtime

or the simplest way to start is buying ETFs which is someone else picking a bunch of stocks in a certain sector and you investing in that its low risk with steady reward overtime

but check the threads in the financial section

Yeah cuz the $60 I pay for unlimited 4G on my phone vs the $65 I pay for internet home isn't even comparable as far as speed.

I just signed up for 1 year of Xfinity "up to" 150mb/s for $50 a month

Getting it hooked up next week and I'm already trying to think of reasons to threaten to leave to get as much of the 150mb/s that i paid for.

Basically.. cable companies are acknowledging they have and will lose the cable war, and focusing on winning the broadband price battle.. you want to leave? Well since you’re going to be streaming take this 90$ a month HIgh Speed. The data caps will likely get lower and to get unlimited they’ll tax 30 to 40 on top of the regular internet charge.
