Take that, Comcast!

You might notice that our den walls are still not painted - soon, very soon.

Recently, Jake and I made the decision to forgo cable in our new house. We were paying 90$ a month for cable and internet and decided that was a bit ridiculous. I mean, we had all the bells and whistles - DVR, HDTV, but 90$? I can think of a better use of that money.

We decided, instead, to get Bellsouth's DSL for $37 a month. (By the way - Jake says it is crappy internet service but we're doing fine here). In order to watch TV, we got a device that connects the computer to the TV and so now we just watch our shows via the internet.

Last Saturday, Jake watched the UT/Vandy game, tonight I watched last week's Grey's, and we also use it for streaming Netflix. So far, it has been worth it!

It's unfortunate that you had to go to another provider, but we're here to help if you ever decide to come back.

We decided not to use Comcast because the exact same internet speed as DSL was 65$ for JUST internet versus 37$ for DSL. In addition, we actually signed up for stand alone internet from Comcast at a quoted 39$ price, paid the installation fee, and then were hit with a bill for the connect fee and $65 internet, which we didn't order. We canceled the Comcast internet and were forced to still pay the installation fee so we were out $40 and so, I gues, $40 the wiser. I don't know that we'll ever go back to Comcast after this mess.

If that is what you were quoted, we should have stuck by that and I apologize for the experience. I realize that at this point, it's not a matter of money, but of principle. I'd like to look into this further-can you share your account info with us via the email in my initial comment? I would like to share your feedback.
