Re: ups time

said by TBBroadband:

Depends on who you're getting each from. I can get a basic phone line for around $10 before taxes. Bundling by the MSOs is mostly a ploy to get you to have all your services with them. Also your $200 per month bundle is high for most people, especially with 50/10 Internet. I can have bundles had for around $90 and at times lower.

The $200 per month is for all three services (HSI, Phone, and TV) with Comcast and includes two HD boxes and the host DVR. I own the HSI and phone modems. I absolutely must have caller ID so if you buy a basic phone line, then the fee for caller ID will wipe out any savings. I will not answer the phone if it comes from a number or area code I don't recognize. Anything outside of Iowa/Maine/Massachusetts/Connecticut I generally don't answer and let them go to voicemail.

I get all the premium channels and the Sports Entertainment Package so the Xfinity Triple Play premier works for me and that includes the AnyRoom DVR.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.
