If you are currently on the 'old' AOL Gold package which was £24.99 a month for an uncapped 2Mb connection, you can, with polite persuasion, get your price reduced to £14.99 a month to match their new silver offering.
AOL will ty to tie you into a new 18 month contract, but just politely insist that as a long time customer you want your charge reducing on your existing contract.
For a 5 minute phone call i have saved £10 a month without taking out a contract.
Ohh yeah 100%, but 2Mb gives me a ping of under 20 on any game server, lets me stream my music from pandora...and quite frankly i dont download that much porn to warrant a 4Mb connection, i doubt most people do. ;o)
Renegotiated my existing(already over)/monthly now @9.99 for silver & whilst upgrading netgear router firmware today realized downstream 7008 upstream 448 kbps so not complaining and am pleased with AOL for the past 3 years.
my daughter did that will have to check but think she convinced them not going anywhere eventhough we spend around £60 on sky package which would mean can get free sky b/band but we liked AOL & heard sky b/band had problems so stayed with AOL
I had AOL silver and took out a one year contract last March to get Platinum for £24.99 a month (with wi-fi router).
When my 12 month contract finished I called them and was offered Platinum for £18.99 a month on an 18 month contract.
After looking at posts on the MoneySavingExpert.com forum, I found out people had called the cancellation line and got it for £9.99 a month.
I rang the cancellation line and gave the spiel about looking to leave AOL then told them straight out that I wanted the £9.99 a month price I had been told about, the women put me on hold for a couple of minutes and confirmed it.
So now I am on the platinum (£29.99) and only paying £9.99.
I had to take AOL talk which is free for 12 months, but as the woman told me, I can cancel at any time from this.
