Doesn't upset me but virgin media have a sneaky thing where they'll increase my speed then about a week or two later I'll get a letter saying the price will go up! I'm waiting for that to happen right now.

I don't pay for ours, but it's part of an internet/tv/phone bundle. What really inflates the bill is the TV though, but the internet isn't terribly expensive.

My internet bill (bundled with TV) doesn't make me cry, but it does make me furious. Cable companies have an utterly repellent business model that punishes customers for loyalty. Draw 'em in with a low price, then jack it to the moon after the bundle expires.

Luckily I've kept my bill at "mildly overpriced" instead of "obscenely overpriced" because every time they jack the price on me I call and ask to cancel service. That usually gets them to offer me a deal.

The TV portion of my bundle makes me cry. If my mother would learn how to stream her muk instead of relying on a physical TV all the time then I wouldn't have this issue, but unfortunately, she isn't too technically savvy..

like sandcastles against the tide.

It did when I had Comcast, but I switched and now I pay less than half of what I did so every time I look at the bill a few tears of joy fall across my glowing cheeks as I think about how good I have it.

Here in France, all internet providers (including mine) charge a flat fee for unlimited access. So, no, it doesn't make me cry. I barely even notice it.
