Sometimes silent changes are for better

I've been reading monthly invoice from my ISP and a line caught my eye immediately. I've been a happy user of FTTH (fiber optics) 6Mb/6Mb Internet bandwidth for a while now and I saw two lines on my invoice: one charging me for 6/6 line and the other charging me for a 20/20 line which I don't have.

Suspecting a mistake in my invoice I've phoned to my ISP hotline number and got a shocking news. Everybody on FTTH got upgraded to 20/20 line which is now "slowest" speed over FTTH. All this for the same price of previously "slowest" 6/6 line. SIOL triplicated+ my (our) FTTH bandwidths for no charge. And they don't even brag or publicize this upgrade. They just did it silently. Go figure.

Looks like we got new year's gift a bit early.

    Lucky you... Usually it's vice versa... you're paying for you bandwidth, when one day you suddenly find out that you could be paying less money for twice as much bandwidth... Of course they've changed their prices and "forgot" to tell you about it... Happened to me twice already.
