Welcome to the world of inflation - Companies hike their prices to keep up with inflation, BUT the people who work to earn wages, their salaries does not go up or does not keep up with inflation, and on rewards site, quite the opposite, the rates go DOWN. Everything goes up in price unfortunately. The same thing here, even WORSE, last year here they increased internet by $3 more per month + VAT, another $3 more for cable + VAT, and yearly they increase by $2 or more.

Prices for cable, mobile and internet in Canada are a RIP-OFF due to the monopoly of phone and cable companies, we are way behind tech and specifications compared to many countries. Some countries in Europe have much higher tier internet packages at a fraction of what we pay here.

Its not due to inflation some telecom companies have not payed full taxes to the government,but if you have a long term relationship with your service provider they are reducing only usage rate remains the same,or you have the option to pay whatever the hiked rate is,my service provider is Airtel I have opted to pay the hiked rated.

Well the way it works in my country is through corruption - The utilities, telcom industry rakes in billions of $ in net profits year to year, BUT they cry that they want more, the shareholders don't have enough - their CEOs with 5 figure a MONTH salaries do not have enough, so they ask for more more more, and who ends up paying, the contributors, whilst these greedy corporations try to justify the increase with some bollox basically just to make you believe that these hikes are essential, my arse..... So yeah clearly here it is not always about inflation as through greed, companies sometimes increase their rates well beyond inflation. There are companies that increase rates by 10-20% !!!!

Poverty is a big deal here, there are people who would gladly work for a fraction of that, but the dozens of CEOs and C-suite running those seedy, greedy companies seem not to be content with their 6 figures salaries yearly, they earn a bloody salary no matter how financially unhealthy the company is, and even when they are let go, they get a huge bonus pay check for basically sucking......It's pathetic.

You have governments here being very nice to companies in terms of taxation. It is the hard working contributor here that ends up paying more than half of what they bloody earn.

The even bigger shock is when you get hikes everywhere, suddenly electricity, cable, internet, municipal taxes, etc, all go up......but do the greedy ***** of companies think of the very workers who make them money ? NOPE, salaries remain the same. It's no wonder in this country, rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer, there is barely any middle class anymore.

Also you chose wisely to opt for the hike over the reduced cap - nowadays with internet getting content heavy, it is ridiculous for companies to reduce usage. Here we are so far behind - Some companies offer caps as low as 60-100gb monthly that is CRAP, when you consider streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, etc.

I have internet and voice thru a cable provider.
A few months ago, it increased by $10 bucks.

The voice is normally $30 but with internet it is $20.

I've been paying approximately $100 per month.

I decided to cancel the voice. I had turned off the answering machine because mostly I
was receiving robocalls. I was able to set the configuration to take note of the robocalls
and cancel the rings to one. It works for about 50% and the rest rings rings rings.

So just a couple of days ago, I call the company and ask them to cancel my voice service.

He says, I can do you one better and you can keep the voice.....how does $69.98 sound?
I said 'great'.

So now I still have voice and my service is $30 less per month.

I suggest you call your service company and talk to them. It doesn't hurt.

Most of the companies did reduce the internet charges in India after a private company Reliance gave them a very tough competition. By now because of the price reduction they have started making losses to the tune of few ten thousand crores. So they have no other choice but to raise the internet charges. Also they have to invest for rolling out the 5G services. This require massive investment and also they have to pay more for the 5G spectrum. I understand that any increase will definitely affect the middle and the lower middle class people in India. But we have no other choice.

But if you cancel voice, you are left with no phone, and I remember you said you had no landline, just VoIP. As far as robocalls, yeah the telemarketing crap, I get on a daily basis and now with this crappy VoIP thing telemarketers can spoof caller IDs, so you can block their # they can just create new IDs to counter your block. I'm assuming you got a few calls from the IRS statement you would go to jail unless you paid taxes, etc, there is lot of such calls here, fake, scam crap - you can NEVER block them 100%, not with the VoIP technology nowadays. And phone companies are responsible because they allow such a thing.

For the rest, yeah some companies can negotiate. They purposely gauge and hike prices in order to set a reserve for some of those negotiations :) They have a margin to negotiate, BUT watch out, some of those negotiations can carry a double edged sword. Understand the terms, some companies might LOCK YOU IN to some conditions in return for a discount.

Works like that here too, when you call to cancel something they will transfer you to a "retention agent" who will try to convert you back and avoid a cancel - I found that $6 increase per month is gd ridiculous considering the previous year I had a $2 one, so since they are not providing any improvements in return for the price hike scam, I usually negotiate an offer and it has worked so far, many people do. It would cost companies millions of $ in losses to lose customers over keeping them.

So it all depends on the company and agent, you may be able to get yourself a discount or you might be told to F.O. :D
Usually the discounts are for a limited time, they can say for the next 6 months or 1 year or whatever, at which point you can call back and re-negotiate, but companies are smart, they will find a way to recover those discounts later when they hike your rates really high - much like when there are class action settlement suits and you win, the companies will recover those with hikes.

I'm still with landline and happy, it is reliable, always on, SAFE and accurate in case of emergencies. I don't subscribe to the whole VoIP garbage, it relies on internet, and subject to outages and other issues. Our cable company's VoIP goes through the company's own network (extranet) but still, when you call 911 you go through an extra intermediary before you get transferred to the correct PPAP, you have time to DIE before someone gets to you, whereas with landline, when you call 911 your call is routed immediately to the correct point based on your location.

People who are of certain age should really stick to landline :P

The only problem is that landline costs more, but you get peace of mind.

Inflation in Australia calculation example

So they want to push some overrated crap down people's throat, I mean 5G come on do people really need such ridiculously high speeds on their phones ? at the cost of safety concerns over RF EMI. Then tomorrow 6G with Terrabits of transfer ?

Why not. I need high speeds and I am ready to pay more for that. Internet with slow speeds is a waste.

Mhm, do you know how fast 5G can go ? Expect to pay a hefty price to get anywhere near those advertised speeds for your internet , and you cannot go faster than the actual server you are downloading from, the fastest speed will be the limit per connection set by the server, load and other variables. For web surfing you really won't get any benefit. For downloading, streaming maybe, but there again it won't do no good if you are capped on your mobile, you will easily bust through your monthly bandwidth in no time So unless mobile companies up their game with their plans and offer significantly higher caps, it will be useless to the regular consumer at first.

Example here we have mostly plans of 750mb, 1GB, 2GB, and RARELY some carriers offering 4GB/month but it is extremely expensive here. And caps like that are a big JOKE, because you can bust those caps with streaming 1 movie on Netflix. So 5G here would be a big waste and phone plans / internet will cost an arm and a leg here with 5G when it is implemented.

So good luck :)

Even here where I stay people travel by local train,metro have monthly,quaterly,yearly pass they get to their destination and walk to their place of work,there are more people walking on the streets,but the irony is the middle class,lower middle class,poor,and people living in rural areas elect a government,if you still end up electing a capitalist form of government then whom can you blame for your problems,think what is required before electing a government
