End of an era for the old ChitChat logo. End of an era for just cable television in the ChitChat sales arsenal. Bittersweet change is mandatory in the cable & internet business so here's what we've done.
1 - We've changed up the ChitChat logo from a boring solid purple quotation and made the new logo a lively block style blue black and white quote!
2 - We've listened to our customers and partnered with a streaming tv service called VIP TV to offer everything cable does but...for half the price!
Exciting times, I know! Looking forward to the future and all the wonderful benefits change may bring. As always let me know if there is anything I can do to help you better enjoy your cable, internet or a lower bill.
Thanks for stopping by.
With guidance, effort and access to technology, anyone can level their playing field. This is why bridging the gap in the digital divide is so important.
The Internet is in open resource. A common person with a humble background can become a millionaire by applying passion, hustle and grit in the digital age. The Internet can make you rich.
The Internet is also a tool that has no bias. This is significant in a world where so many are crying foul. With the same amount of time in the day and equal access to information, the playing field begins to look even rather quickly.
Don't know something-google it. Language barrier-Google it. Don't know how to get where you're going-(Do NOT use Apple Maps) Google Map it. Of course there are more tools than Google but hopefully you see where I'm going. Success in just about any endeavor is only a click away. Which means access to a level playing field is only a click away.
It's no secret. The technology we trust spies on us. Not in the spooky big brother kind of way - more like...keywords. If I private message my friend that I have a taste for Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies made by furry pets wearing gloves, amazingly an ad for Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies made by furry pets wearing gloves appears on my computer screen and even supplies me with a 20% off coupon in my inbox. Coincidence? Maybe you see it that way. In reality, the marketers are simply reading what you typed and selling to that product or service you desire. Highly effective but expensive nonetheless.
My problem isn't that big business can harness technology which can gather data to better sell me products and services that I want, as long as there are limits to the snooping. My problem is with the fact that as a small business owner this wonderful consumer data gathering tool is only available to big companies with deep pockets. You've got to pay to play. But what if your business survival depended on you playing a game you couldn't afford? If you thought the consumer marketing playing field was uneven before between big and small, sweetheart-you ain't seen nothing yet! #DigitalAd #Marketing #Verizon #Snooping #Keywords #BraveNewWorld #ChitChat #SmallBiz #BigBiz

Here's what we know. According to NTIA research*, about 32% of Americans have little or no access to broadband internet. Amazingly, the leaders of the future will be required to understand computers and use the internet. Yet, a chunk of the American population doesn't have access. See the problem here?
There is a solution to this problem. That solution is you and me. Each of us have the ability to do what we can by donating to organizations dedicated to bridging the gap in the digital divide and speaking about the matter to our elected officials.
As a socially responsible company providing voice and data services nationwide, ChitChat feels it necessary to serve as a champion in the fight to close the digital divide. This is why 5% of all ChitChat sales, commercial and residential, will be donated towards ending the digital divide. Visit everyoneon.org and help close the gap in the digital divide with us.

If you've had Charter/Spectrum's service you might have a quick opinion on this blog title but heres the real deal. Spectrum will charge you for equipment. The modem, the cable receiver boxes and back up battery for example can count as equipment that comes with a fixed monthly rental charge.
When people speak of being hassled for nickel and dimes they are really talking about feeling the sting of the added monthly equipment fees. For example, Spectrum charges $5 per receiver box, per room, per month. In that receiver box example, when you have four rooms of cable, thats an extra $20 per month on your cable bill. $20 per month over the course of several months can add up to be a lot of money! DirecTV gives you up to four rooms of receiver boxes for free. So for a new Spectrum customer who just left DirecTV where there were no equipment fees the extra monthly charges can feel like a bit of a rip off.
Somebody said that blog post don't all have to be as longs a book. I'm keeping this one short. LOL! Good but short! It's about internet.
Everyone should have be able to enjoy affordable internet. Spectrum is doing its part to make sure low income households are connected with WiFi for around $20 per month.

It's true. AT&T offers a $10/month Access Internet Program for low income families. You or someone in your household must receive Foodshare (Food Stamps) to qualify. Not even bad credit can disqualify you. I recommend you sign up because the offer will not be around forever. Not a fan of AT&T? Spectrum has a similar offer.
Having AT&T Internet also qualifies you to lock in a price savings for 24 months on your DirecTV. Typically, after 12 months your cable bill price will skyrocket! However, if you bundle your AT&T internet with DirecTV you can enjoy the new subscriber promotional rate of $50 per month for 24 months. Not bad!

When it comes to saving money on your cable bill, after the first 12 months, many times the grass is greener on the other side. That's because after 12 months your sweet new customer promotional rate expires and you're smacked with a bill so big it looks something like a joke. What's not a joke is the fact that such price increases are industry standard. It's not a scam. It's a practice used by DirecTV, Comcast, Spectrum and others.
There are only a couple of ways to protect yourself from this price hike and still enjoy all the features of your current cable package. Your first option is to renegotiate your cable bill to a lower price. This option takes some guts and you are not guaranteed to get the discounts you're looking for. However, with some persistence, you can succeed in getting your bill back down to a reasonable rate.
The second option is to cross over to greener pastures. Switch providers after 12 months otherwise known as 'the 12 month jump'. Some service providers encourage a jump by making it super easy for you to switch over to them. For example, let's say you're considering a switch from DirecTV to Spectrum. Spectrum will help you pay for any fees associated with leaving your current provider at anytime, after 12 months you can definitely just walk away and switch to Spectrum penalty free. This switch makes you a new customer and grants you access to those sweet new customer rates once again.
The 12 month jump sounds like a lot but when you're talking about saving yourself $1000 or more per year, it could be well worth the effort. It just depends on your situation. Some people would rather spend top dollar and avoid all the hassle of changing service providers. Some people are downright satisfied with their existing service which is great. But if you're focused on saving money or unhappy, a good place to start regaining your happiness and cutting costs might be found in your cable bill.
