Weâ€™ve rounded up what ISPs are doing for customers during the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. But thereâ€™s something you can do as well: Call your ISP and ask for a lower price on your Internet service. I did, and itâ€™s saving me about $20 per month.
Everyoneâ€™s struggling right now: consumers, businesses, and ISPs alike. Millions of Americans are filing for unemployment (including my wife). But your Internet provider wants you to remain as a customer.
My advice: Meet in the middle. Normally, negotiating a better rate with your ISP is best left to the end of the month, when the company doesnâ€™t want to ruin its retention numbers. But why wait?
