Re: So how many of you nerds dropped your Cable TV service?
The last bill I got with Qwest (local phone company) was almost $150.00. This was for Directv and DSL service only, no phone. I dropped Directv and now I'm about $60 a month ahead every month counting my Tivo fee of $13.00 a month and any shows I have to buy from Amazon. The best part about saving over $700.00 a year? No contracts! If I get tired of watching a show, I stop buying it. I pay for what I want, not all the stupid sports channels and shopping channels I never watched on Directv.

I don't care about 100mbps down when the cap keeps getting lowered.
