Claro services contract versus prepaid
Some of my friends have contracts with Claro and all seem to pay much more than I do for Claro's services. Considering the quality of thier service I wanted to show just how cheap it can be to use Claro without the hassles of a contract.
I use Claro's prepaid internet, and cell service. I have a contract for their cable but only because pre-paid is not offered (the cable has been out since about 2 pm this afternoon by the way).
Cell Phone: I pay 50 Cordobas every ten days. I typically use chat as people cannot understand my Spanish on the phone anyway, but I can make calls if needed because there is typically a bonus offered by Claro when purchasing minutes.
Internet: I pay 25 Cordobas on the days I want to use the internet. I get 12 hours of airtime. Sometimes I reach my data limit before the 12 hours are up, but not usually. I am on the internet maybe 3 days a week.
Cable: I use to pay 200 Cordobas a month, but I requested Claro cancel my cable which they haven't done yet. But lets go with 200 Cordobas a month.
Cell Phone: 50 cords every 10 days ($2 X 3 times a month = $6.00 a month)
Internet: 25 cords x 12 days a month = about $12 dollars a month
Cable 200 cord a month ( about $8.25)
That's a grand total of about $26.25 a month.
Given how cheap it can be and the quality of service Claro has why do people sign a contract with Claro for anything?
Is there a legitimate reason to contract with them? Maybe a business need?
