After several years of my calling and being told no, they fairly easily dropped my Pipeline (5mb) from $62.95/mo to $24.94/mo. I called just after the Belo uprising, and told them DISH offered me a promotion of SAT Internet for $29.95/mo + N/C installation. The Charter retention rep countered by telling me SAT cannot offer speeds of 5mb (which they cannot), but I told her the DISH rep told me it is exactly what I have now.
Mine is stand-alone also. The retention agent originally told me $29.95/mo, but when my statement posted last month, it was $5.00 less.
Hopefully [looking upward] the DSL switches will be here before the year is up, and I will be able to live out one of my lifelong dreams!
