Here is a kind of tricky question for anyone with knowledge pertaining to the installation of cable internet in homes. Let us assume there are people in the world who one way or another happen to enjoy free cable. By this I mean, maybe they moved in a home hooked up their TV to the cable jack, and what do you know it works. Lets also assume it has been a couple of months and these people have never been contacted by the cable company whatsoever. Now on to the question: If these people are now interested in actually paying for cable internet, will their free cable be noticed and therefore billed? In other words, if the cable company comes over to do the cable internet installation, will they somehow know the new customers have had free services for months now? Or will the cable co. simply come out, hook up the internet, leave, and only bill the people for the known new service? Thank you all in advance for your help with this hypothetical question.
