$40/mo for cable access, as a cable tv customer too. $90/mo for tv and internet combined.Alex Baumann said:What are you paying for your DSL Internet access ? Just trying to make a comparo with our prices.
I'm paying $30 for DSL + $ 10 Line fee = $ 40 Total /month
I, no joke, have seriously thought of dropping the TV part. I just pay it even though it's never on. However, this time of year, it's actually on more often than the rest of the year as I do watch pro football (and often watch the Sunday night cable-only games). Otherwise, I fully realize I could save $50/mo easily as it really is never on.PM 325xiT said:
I thought you didn't watch TV
My combined bill is $107 (39.95 internet, 5 for modem) but I have HBO, etc. too
You can put an antenna in the attic.TD said:
The only other problem is that I cannot have an external antenna on our house and I do like the option of catching the news or weather as needed.
Hey! 36" WEGA? me too... heh... :thumbup:Agent86 said:
PICTURE QUALITY is the reason I went with DirecTV, because the normal cable signal doesn't do my 36" Sony Vega any justice!!!!
Dave, you have the satellites instead, don't you ?Dave 330i said:
DSL? what's that? a rich community like mine does not have DSL, can you imagine that? I'm trying to get cable modem, and Aldephia said they have to come out to the house to check a few things. Took next door neighbor 2 months to get cable modem with his normal cable TV. Now, you see why I like work so much? T1 is the way to go. And, when I get to work at 6am in the morning, it's lighten speed. I have a phone line dedicated to AOL $22/mo+$20 phone line, slow and slower, at 28-32kb/sec Everyone else in the family has cell phones.
Same here. Cable looks like crap on my Wega. I wish I could switch to satellite but I live in an apartament complex and it is absolutely verbotten. Can't wait to move to a house. Also, I am not sure how it is in Germany but here there are tons of different taxes, surchages, fees, funds etc on every bill so the advertised amount always ends up being something else than what you actually pay. So you have to calculate that in as well.Agent86 said:
Is it a condo or attached unit area that you live in?? The reason I ask is that I am perplexed as to why they would call it a "common-area".
I live in a community with a very stringent HOA board. Although they do not like the satellite dishes, by law (Nevada law) there is NOTHING they can do about them. Someone a while back challenged their position on them, and they had to amend the CC&R's to state that if you do put one up, try to make it as inconspicous as possible.
You might want to check with the laws in your state.
P.S. I love the WEGA!!!! The picture quality is amazing when I saw it for the first time at Circuit City. When I took it home, and plugged in my traditional cable to it, I was on the phone with DirecTV about 5 minutes later because I wanted it to look how it did at the store!
