My internet was already $56 a month and it kept creeping up and now it's $76 a month for 50MBps download on Comcast/ Xfinity.
I asked if there was a smaller package and they said they could put me on 25MBps but that would only be a couple of dollars less. And then they said they have an even smaller package, but it's on 3MBps. Why are we paying so much for internet?!
What's your internet company and speed and monthly bill?

Anna Louise Garms Adair was the first woman (girl, actually she was only 12) to drive across the Broadway Bridge--why? Because her father and his construction company built it and when it was done he bought a brand new Ford for his Anna to drive across the bridge.
