Charter called me today. At first I thought this was another one of those “we’ll give you a big bundle of stuff that you don’t need and charge you more than you want to pay” type things. I was more than happily surprised when the lady on the phone tells me that I can get the 8mb internet (which i currently have), digital cable (which is a big upgrade from my 20 channels) and a landline phone (which I don’t need or want, but whatevs) all for the price that I currently pay. I was like ok, sign me up. So I’m going to have a landline phone. Seems like a waste of time and energy for them to put in. I mean I don’t even have a phone to use with it. But really, I’m excited to get the digital cable.
I’m typing via the 5 meg cable modem connection at my new place. All I have is an empty studio apartment and internet and cable. Move should happen on Saturday I hope. The bad news of all of this is that the cable modem I got at a garage sale years ago is actually a charter modem, so now I’ve got to rent it… lame sauce. I’ll be buying a new one soon, I should have just traded Kevin I guess. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.
