Up to what?
I spent a good portion of time this morning arguing with the internet people, attempting to cancel our upgrade order because we got totally fucked with our pants on.
Read: if you order a certain mbps speed, you are not guaranteed anything near that speed, although you will be charged for it.
The fine print = your speed will be up to 7 mbps.
From zilch, zero.
In fact, although I had signed up for a certain speed, I was actually getting less than half of that speed. When I went back to the regular speed, I literally only got 0.1 mbps less.
If they can get away with this concept, I have decided, so should the rest of us.
We could work up to so many hours a week, when employed full-time.
We could promise up to so many sexcapades to our partners.
Our cats could give us up to so many cuddles. (Although I think I will be getting more, thanks to my spiffy new blanket from K!)
We could pay up to the listed prices of movies, dinners out, clothing, shoes, etc.
What do you think?
