Re: move to a better deal

When I moved to Germany, I automatically went to Telekom, it was pretty much the only choice back in 2002. I had a standard ISDN with ADSL package, with 2mbps. I stuck with that for about a decade. Then, after moving, I found out my local telco could offer me 50mbps for the same price.

After being a customer for over a decade, I went back to Telekom and asked them what they could offer. The answer was 3mbps + satellite TV!

I had luck, the local telco had run their own cables throughout the town. In the meantime, I could also switch to cable, but they have repeatedly, falsely accused my wife of watching illegal cable TV (she had freeview satellite), so she won't let them anywhere near the house.
