Did you just get it recently? Here, they do a promotional rate of $40 for a year and then it goes up to $60.

I think spectrum just started a few months ago, was branded differently before . And it is a promotional rate.... You need to get a family member to sign up after the introductory rate.

Who wants to join my neighborhood wifi party? One house, midblock, providing affordable internet to the entire block. Fuck the ISPs, I'll get them at their own game. More of a "neighborhood watch" against being screwed over by ISPs.
i don't know who you are, but i like the cut of your jib.
