However, the $40 advertised price is slightly misleading. The actual price with taxes is over $50. What's upsetting about this is the taxes are not on the actual internet service, rather they are on the bundled phone service. I don't use the phone service and don't plan to. In this age of mobile phones, I would guess most people are like me.
I think the idea of bundling a service most people don't use which increases the price 25% and makes Sonic no additional money (it's all taxes) makes zero sense. It just makes the product that much less competitive.
You should optionally include the phone service if a user requests it, but a 25% price increase should not be forced on people who don't even use the service.
Is there any plan to split these two out?
