CHESTERFIELD, Mo., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadstripe today announced the addition of two new Broadstripe Forever Lifetime Price Guarantee options for customers who might already have an alternate video provider. The Surf-Lite, Talk-Lite bundle and the Talk-Lite a la carte phone service, priced at $49.99 and $29.99 per month for life respectively, round out the Broadstripe Forever program launched in August 2009. The success of the program far exceeded expectations and Broadstripe Forever subscribers now number in the thousands.
"Customers and employees love this program; in fact, we have surpassed the aggressive sales targets that we set when we launched Broadstripe Forever. Both groups appreciate our commitment to providing the best overall value in in-home communications and entertainment," said Tony Lent, Chief Commercial Officer for Broadstripe. "With Surf-Lite, Talk-Lite, we are appealing to an even wider audience by extending the packages to include options designed for light phone and internet users who might be on a budget, particularly in these tough economic times."
These new additions to the Broadstripe Forever program are specifically designed to target segments of the population, such as the elderly, that are often underserved by telecommunications providers. For example, approximately 50% of senior citizens do not have internet service. The Surf-Lite, Talk-Lite bundle affords subscribers the opportunity to take advantage of Broadstripe's revolutionary Lifetime Price Guarantee program without having to obtain video, internet or phone service that far exceeds their technology needs. The bundle includes lower-speed internet and home phone service with 12 popular calling features including unlimited local calls. This home phone service is also available as an a la carte Talk-Lite package for $29.99 per month for life. Surf-Lite, Talk-Lite subscribers are also eligible for Broadstripe's new Broadstripe Challenge, the industry's best 60-day, money-back guarantee.
"We received feedback and we listened," said Lent. "All of our Broadstripe Forever bundles are in direct response to prospective customers' requests for more options and greater flexibility."
The addition of the Surf-Lite, Talk-Lite package comes at a time when cable and satellite providers are instituting annual rate increases. According to a November 2008 statement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), cable industry prices have more than doubled over the past decade.
