ATT Worldnet Informative - Exorbitant price increase

Review by littlestnk on 2001-11-29
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- The increase you are indicating here is really quite exorbitant. Currently, those of us on your i495 plan pay $4.95 for 150 hours access. Your proposal of $10.95 for 50 hours is over a 650% price increase. Of course 150 hours for $16.95 is only a 342% price increase. In today's unstable economy I would think the prudent thing to do is to offer 50 hours for $4.95. That amounts to only a 300% increase. That would certainly be something a little more palatable than your current offer and, I would imagine, retain more of your valuable customers than your current proposal.

If you look at my monthly usage you'll see I don't use even 50 hours a month. My primary use if for email, so the i495 plan was great for someone like me. But to pay $10.95 or more for email just does not make economical sense.

I agree 100% as my situation plays out exactly like yours..To be perfectly honest, I didnt know there was a price increase prior to reading this, so I am equally seething of having not been informed...Big business screwing the consumer which is business as usual..Their attitude is simple, Mr Consumer, I can do whatever I like and theres not thing you can do about it"!!
