Now you've done it.  For my phone and internet bundle, I pay 
$83/month--and that's with a $15 "lifetime" package discount from 2005 
tossed in.

I was amazed that were I to change to the lowest tier of POTS service 
and add "Caller ID" ($10/month) and lowest level DSL, my bill would be 
roughly the same after taxes.  I'm amazed that "caller ID" costs CL 
anything, but it's one of the highest-priced add-ons.  BTW, I'm also 
paying $2/month for long-distance service to Mexico, even though I've 
never called nor received a call from there.
