Hey, Brian, I get where you're coming from, but just so you'll know, your guys did a pretty crappy job of negotiating the new contract with AT&T. There's no reason why you couldn't have negotiated a deal for your current customers. I've been negotiating multi-million dollar contracts for many years, and you could have made that a contingency, even if you had to, say, charge a one-time fee to your current users to get the new rate.
Let me know the next time you folks are going to negotiate with them. I'd be glad to help. It's a bitter pill to have a Hobson's choice like this - either cut off your Internet for a couple of weeks, or get screwed on the price you're paying. I am not a happy camper.
