Ohio snowbirds can get deals on cable, phone while away

CLEVELAND (AP) – The Ohio Department of Commerce says snowbirds could be eligible for a reduction on their cable, Internet and phone services.

According to The Plain Dealer, some customers who leave for warmer weather can pay a monthly fee to have their provider put a temporary hold on their service. Customers can save money, keep their phone number and avoid disconnecting and reconnecting their services.

Some providers will hold service for as little as a month up to as many as nine months. The fees are often $5 per month per service for cable TV, phone and Internet.

Customers often have to be in good standing with the company.

Time Warner Cable confirmed it offers the service to those who will be away for at least two months.
