Because Spectrum pricing continues to increase, we switched to streaming services only. Since we switched in the middle of a billing cycle we are still on the hook to pay the entire bill even though we won't have the service. When I asked to reinstate the service to get me to the end of the billing period so we could just use what we're paying for, they wanted to charge me another $59 (hook-up fee) besides the high bill.
