Thanks. Charter, like AT&T, has a monopoly on cable in my area (as other cable cos. do elsewhere). So, they'd be my only choice. Good to know you get good speed, but I've always read that cable speeds can vary for same co., even in different parts of town.
Thanks Mr. Name Removed,
I've looked at Oplink for yrs. They used to be relatively competitive - not any more. They're now $50 for 3.0 DSL + 15-20/mo for a cheap ATT landline. Way more than ATT. As far as "making as fuss," since I'm scraping bottom & you're well off, could you spot me a few $ each mo?
For the record, it was going from $15 to 43 - 336 / yr. If that was my only bill, wouldn't matter. But I got them back to 19/mo + $50 cr. because they're either liars, truly incompetent (yr after yr, since they changed from SBC to AT&T), or both.
But I do that every yr w/ DSL, plus saving 600 / yr - every yr - by ditching ATT phone & getting VOIP. Switched elec. providers & save ~ $250 /yr. How much is that saved all totaled over last 5 yrs alone?
Let's see - which is more important. About 5K / yr for health insur + 2 - 3K out of pocket med expenses so my wife can have a decent life, or super fast internet / 100 + TV channels? If others have the $, don't have high personal debt (like the avg 10- 12K for Americans), I say spend all you want.
