Drop when contract expires I'd start dropping services right now but am locked into that 2 yr gauranty deal the TWC ran but once it runs out, I'll be cutting back to basic net service as the only thing we even use the damn TV for is local news and can get that from their website. Voip, it's a damn joke for the quality level we get. The only reason I went with it in the first place was bad landline that called 911 (line was shorting) and while the officer was there, the damn thing dialled 911 again. Thankfully we had cells and was able to get Verizon to disable our line and schedule a repair tech ASAP. For those looking at voip or cell only, keep in mind that the Telco is obligated by law to provide 911 service to all phones connected. In other words, keep a landline plugged in for 911 reasons - it'll work only for that even when power is out.
said by Fast Turtle:That law varies by state. This is not required in all states. In those where it applies the phone must be phone line powered such as an old corded trimline or desk top phone in the event of a power outage. Cordless phones and such will need a source of power such as from a UPS or genny.

Local news looks good on an antenna That is of course if you can put an antenna outdoors, or you live near the broadcast.
