What's the "real" price?

 The fun started with my annual pilgrimage to Spectrum's "retention" department.  The game goes something like this - Spectrum provides a "promo" rate for a year, the rate runs out and you are shocked with a crazy high bill, you complain and eventually are given another promo which is usually about $10 higher than your old "promo" but looks good compared to the "regular" rate (whatever that is).  This has become such an annual passage that I've now placed it on my calendar to try to avoid the price shock.
