Your cable company is inflating your bill

Cable is a crazy web of bundles, introductory offers, ride-alongs and hidden fees. Our favorite is the bizarre but important-sounding HD Technology Fee. We’ll get to that.

We’re used to paying too much for cable TV and Internet access. We’ve come to accept misleading introductory pricing and the term contracts that come along with it. We’re used to bill creep.

One of the big things that sets Ting TV apart from your cable company is our approach to pricing. We’re clear, upfront and honest about what you pay. With our Internet service, the price you see is the price you pay. That’s $89/mo for gigabit service, plus taxes where applicable.

  • Regional sports fee ($3 on average)
  • HD technology fee ($10 on average)
  • Miscellaneous fees (varies)

Mystified by fiber optic cable terminology?

fiber optic cableWe try our best to avoid industry jargon. There are certain concepts, though, where jargon is the only concise way to say a thing. “Fiber blowing,” for example, beats “shoot air down a tube to reduce friction such that a fiber optic cable can be pushed as opposed to pulled through the conduit, lessening the risk of damage.”

We’ll continue to avoid jargon. That said, if your interest in the building out of a fiber network goes beyond “when will it be in my neighborhood?” there are a few terms and concepts it would be beneficial to understand.
