I've had cable Internet for a few years now, and they offered a deal I couldn't refuse last year... if I'd sign up for TV and Internet both, and if I agreed to a full year with them (or be penalized for leaving early). So we left our Direct TV satellite dish and went to cable for our TV, as well as Internet.
Folks, you can't imagine how terrible our TV reception is with Cebridge. Especially the local channels. Still, I loved my cable Internet, so I got by.
Then Sprint became a contender: They said they'd give us DSL and telephone and Dish satellite TV, and send one combined bill each month for all three. The cost for all this was about the same as our lousy Cebridge connection (which, as yet, doesn't offer digital TV to this area... can you say "the stone age?")
My year is almost up with Cebridge, and I'm wired with Sprint. Thursday our dish will be installed, and we can start enjoying our new digital TV as it ought to be enjoyed.
