~sadcustomer: I was a new customer and I was getting service here for the first time . I was told that they offer a Free box (standard) and I could use my own router. The installer installed one and said I had to use theirs. Then I got my first bill and was charged for the HD box. I called and explained the situation and was told they dont offer Standard boxes. I asked for them to listen to the phone call, since all calls are recorded and my bill was alot more that expected. Then * months later I called to cancell the premium channels before I had to start paying and they said it was done. I few days later i got Emails stating that different bill prices, I called back and was told my bill would be so much and the channels were off. I got my bill and I have been charged for channels and it would take * billing cycles to credit their mistake. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was hold for ever and finally I was told they were having difficulty and would call back. They called back , he also told me
