Fraudulent Contract Renewal Prompt/Horrible Customer Service

I logged into to pay my bill and was given a notification that my contract had expired and needed renewal.  Fearing loss of service I quickly renewed the contract - only to notice after that the monthly amount increased by $20.  I called and waited for over 30 minutes to speak with someone.  I was told that the new contract I signed did not include discounts I had received under the previous contract and a supervisor would need permission to give the discounts back.  No one contacted me back for 2 days.  Called again and spoke with a supervisor named Mrs. Trask.  She told me that my original contract wasn't set to expire for 2 more years!!!  She didn't believe me when I told her about the prompt to renew.  She asked if I had proof and blamed me for signing the new contract.  I asked to cancel the new FRAUDULENT CONTRACT, then she told me my new monthly amount would be $40 more a month because the discounts were removed from the original contract (that I was happy with).  The customer service was horrible!  As a returning customer you would think you would be treated a little better.  Mrs Trask didn't even look into the renewal prompt and why I received this prompt.  From other postings on this forum, I am not the only one this has happened to.
