CLICK: Rates increase but service decreases

It is ironic that Tacoma Power-owned Click Network just raised its rates very substantially and now is telling its ever-dwindling customer base to “stay with us as we stand our ground” while customers are deprived of KOMO-TV, with its outstanding community reporting, as well as the ABC network.

Has anyone asked Click and its owner about the high salaries being paid to many of its employees? Where are the salary cuts and other cost reductions that one would expect a company to make when times are tough?

It is unfortunate that Click’s days as a cable TV provider in Pierce County may be numbered as it hemorrhages customers fed up with 1990s technology (while competitor Comcast offers state-of-the-art services to its customers) and ever-increasing rates, not to mention decreasing services.
