In our market, Comcast charges $60 a month for standalone internet. They always talk people into getting basic TV service for $15 and internet for $45. I don't see how Verizon is any worse in that respect.
I'd rather have broadband and basic cable bundled than DSL and landline since I have more alternatives for VOIP and cell than I do for TV service OTA. With basic cable, a cable card, and TiVo HD I could record all the broadcast networks in HD, something I can't do OTA.
I booted Verizon two years ago since it seemed they really didn't want to compete with TWC in my area and they've done nothing but confirm my assessment sine then.
