Sometimes things you can save money on take off in a neighborhood. However, what you save money on also has to work good too. For example, I discovered that we all have the same cell service in our neighborhood. It was not a plan we hatched, it is just that only one service works here in our neighborhood. Now when it comes to Internet service I found that almost everyone of us around here got it from saveoninternet.us. It is what I signed us up for some time back when I saw we were paying too much for our old Internet service.
In conversation with a couple of neighbors who were complaining about their slow Internet service, I told them what we had. I did not tell them to switch, I just told them how much we were paying and how it worked. They all know we are an Internet savvy family who does a lot online. I make websites and write content for a living. They know I need reliable Internet service. From what I figured out my one neighbor signed up for the service at saveoninternet.us. He was happy with his savings and how it worked at his house so he told other neighbors around here that he is socially closer too. Word got around that way.
I make it a point when talking with neighbors I don’t see too often or know to well to casually ask them about who their Internet service company is. Most of them have the same service we have. They tell me stories about another neighbor telling them about the service so they signed up too. I think we were probably the first to switch, so I kind of like knowing I started this thing. It really puts it into perspective about what kind of power you really do have when you share information with another person that can benefit them.
