Re: Costs
@freehee  I don't know how good the other company's services are and I didn't even check the number of channels and how fast their Wi-Fi is. I have no time for all of that. I guess in the long run I trust the Optimum brand. Also, who wants a landline phone anyway? The only reason I want a line is for my fax machine.

Re: Costs
@srufolo1, Yes you have to read the fine print or terms and conditions because the company will not inform you of the hidden fees. Most of the companies nowaways have hidden fees, tricks and gimmicks to more even more money.

Re: Costs
@freehe  I just ordered Optimum's Triple Play and I tried to get the guy to offer me a one-year premium channel. His reply was that I get Showtime for only three months. The Triple Play is advertised as $89.99 for two years, but they hide certain fees, like the $10 apiece for each box and various taxes. Right after I ordered it, I saw a commercial about Spectrum (previously Time Warner Cable). Their lowest price tier was for $29.99 for Triple Play, also for two years. Optimum sweetened its deal with a $200 American Express card (that you have to wait 90 days for). I should have asked how much the service will increase after two years.

RE: AT&T: IoT Cyber Attacks Increase 400% in 2016
@Joe. S, @Steve. S:

I wouldn't deny your thoughts about potential increase of cyber attacks. But having that hope for atleast sight decrease wouldn't hurt and that is very necessary to keep the cyber fight moving further to address the attacks. we must keep that positive hope alive and moving.

@freehe:

Completely in agreement with your thoughts about reactive vs proactive. We are seeing that in prcatice and that is not very good practice. Hope companies would start taking security measures on a proactive basis.

Agreed, AT&T is making lot of changes. Good to know that they are offering free wifi in Florida. It's good to see that becoming a standard.

Re: Costs
> I remind them that I am a loyal customer

This is the key -- and loyalty means more than just having done business with them for a while.  They keep track of how timely you are with paying your bills, what your service call history is like, and just generally how much of a pain in the butt you are.  Some customers they will bend for to make happy.  Others, they prefer to just tell them to not let the door hit them on the way out.

> or only slightly decrease.

I think even that is optimistic; I think you are right that they will continue to increase.  The market opportunity has proven itself, and the black-hats have demonstrated a knack for innovation (just look at how ransomware has taken off, and the different types of ransomware "business models"!).

I honestly can't see it ever really decreasing too much.  While technology and security is always getting better and looking to strive forward, So are the same hackers that are seeking to break it.  While something might take a long time to crack, eventually it will always break as nothing is perfect.  I think cyber attacks will either continue to increase or only slightly decrease.
