I ordered a telephone service from Cox yesterday. The price was about $12, however the total came down to $22. The other $10 is for tax among which $6.30 is FCC tax, and the rest is local tax.
I haven’t had a land line for a long time and did not have much problem without one. The reason I am getting one now is due the increased burglaries in local neighborhoods. My friend who lived on 51st Ave had 2 burglaries in 6 months. It turned out there are only 2 police cars patrolling at night from Central Ave to above 60 or 70 ave which is a large area.
The security system will cost another $32 a month, $30 a year to pay the government for a reason I don’t remember now.
