Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Yes, we all know on TV that Spectrum claims to be good. That’s not as far as I’m concerned. Spectrum is bad. My experience: I was told I had to convert to a Spectrum account. After all was said and done, that cost me around $60 to $70. My monthly bill also went up $25. I called them and after arguing with them, it was reduced $10. But that is only good for one year.I didn’t get any extra channels ( I have just the basic Tiers 1 and 2 ). By the way Tier 1 and Tier 2 are basically the same. You have to have both of them, I was told.Did you also see in one of their pamphlets, that people on Medicaid would receive the box free for five years?Many people I know have expressed their disapproval of this company. When will the rate increases stop, and the customer service improve?Edward HedlundClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationHigh-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton ParkEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census
