Bell actually tried to shake me down today.
Having trimmed my Bell service down to as close to nothing as possible (and still paying $40/month) Bell called me today, and told me that they were checking up on their “loyal customers”. Then, immediately after I’d explained that I want as little as possible to do with them, they tried to sell me their “wire care” plan. For only four bucks a month, you can get your wires insured against “normal wear and tear”. Because you wouldn’t want anything to happen to those nice, shiny wires, would you? It would be tragic if, you know, there was an accident.
The terms of their plan are awesome. $4/month, 1 year minimum, $25 fee for early cancellations. The best part was that they tried the hard sell, too.
I don’t know why I’m surprised by this, but I am.
