Now Entering Russ's World
I have some great advice for anyone who is having problems with their current Internet or cell phone service provider, switch. Switching service providers is the best idea I’ve had all year, especially since my previous service provider was taking me for granted. I was a good customer of a major company, and I paid my bill on time every single month. One month, my job was going extremely slow, and I didn’t make as much money as I was making before. I knew that my bills would suffer from it, so I planned ahead.
I called my Internet company, which happens to be the same company that I have my cell phone through, and I let them know my problem. I told him I would pay my bill, but I would need a couple extra weeks to pay it. They said they would give me the time, but I was going to be charged a 10% fee, which is outrageous. Since I have other people on my plan, a 10% fee would end up costing me an extra $20, which I did not have. I asked if I could have one month without a fee and they refused.
I immediately started looking for another company. I was in luck because a friend of mine told me about a company called FreedomPop. FreedomPop has free Internet and cell phone service available. Even when I read about the cost of the additional services that FreedomPop has, the cost pales in comparison to what I was currently paying. I didn’t bother waiting around, I went ahead and cancelled my previous service provider before I would have been issued a late fee. I paid off my bill in full, and I made the switch to FreedomPop. FreedomPop made it very easy for me to get Internet services, and I went ahead and signed up for cell phone service as well.
I was able to get each person in my family on the FreedomPop service for cell phone service, and everyone is happy with their plan. We’re all able to text, talk, and go on the Internet on our phones. FreedomPop has saved me an incredible amount of money each month, and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone who is struggling with a current service provider.
