It really pays to shop around for lower prices if or when you feel that you are paying too much for a specific product or service. For example, I have ATT DSL for my Internet and recently they jacked-up my monthly bill from $34 to $54. That is a big hike all at once and so I called them and told them that I was Not going to be able to afford that every month and I politely asked what can be done to get that price back down. Low and behold, come to find out, they offer a faster speed for significantly less. If they did not lower the bill though, I was ready to switch to TimeWarner because TimeWarner was already offering me a really nice deal. I have to say that I was somewhat surprised to learn that ATT had that deal with a higher speed for mush less cost but yet they started charging me much more money for a lower speed. Now Im getting ready to see what I can do to lower my cell phone bill.
