Social Security Disability did not get an increase last year and will not get one this coming year but my costs continue to rise. By adding Internet service from a_double_t to my phone bill (savings good for one year) and using dish_net (savings also good for one year of two year contract) my cost now is $85 USD this year and something like $110 USD the next year barring other rate increases. Still less than the original $145 USD.

I am already missing cable. It is so easy to purchase devices that will record programming off of cable. With satellite, you have to pay for every tuner used ... one tuner for each TV, one tuner for each channel you might want to record. If there are three programs scheduled in the same time slot, you need three tuners. There just is no other way around it. And you must pay a service fee if you are going to use a DVR to record, which just adds more expense.

So today, I have a new IP address!

Cheers!

I'm on the same income you are Robert, I'm looking to downgrade my bundle somehow, just haven't figured out how and what yet, that bill keeps growing.

Robert,
I subscribe to AT&T U-verse which I can program movies or soaps for my wife when I take her out.
My bill is $100.00 per month for TV, Elite Internet(think its 6mps), and phone.
I do this so I only have one bill from them per month. Makes online paying easier.
We both are on Social Security and no increases for another year while our elected people gave themselves a raise.
There are others cheaper but not in a package deal like we get from U-Verse. Even the guys who are selling Dish at Sam's Club say I've got the best deal going.
Keep us posted monthly, on how your service is working. Would be curious to know!

They are unfair with their pricing, I am so fed up with cable but I will probably never change because of the cable internet.
I had my doubts also, but the a_double_t dsl modem practically set itself up and I have no loss of speed for half the cost (at least for one year). I am still getting 3MBS.

I have heard good things about U-verse. Is that a one year promotional price?

Here in my town, a_double_t delivers its TV programming via direct t v. I found the regular cost of direct to be higher than the regular cost of what I got. I like the idea of one bill to pay, but do not like the idea of one company getting all the business so it can monopolize the price! (kind of like fox net?)

This will be a two year experiment ... so we will see how it goes!

Thanks!
Robert

Guys there are millions just like us out there .. I have a bundled Att internet.. Long distance.. and home phone service for 80 dollars per month ... my cell is ATT also..but a different bill.. I prefer it this way..because my monthly fee for the cell is 29.99 per month..
I'm madder than a wet hen over no raise on SS again this year.. If those rats in Washington DC would pay back to SS all the monies they've raided from it..to pay other things... SS would be solvent until, the Lord returns... even if they paid just the interest on the raided funds alone ,
back to SS.. it still would stay solvent.

Was in a similar situation and switched to ATT for internet. No more cable. Hulu is your friend... We watch movies on Hulu and many TV shows. I dont miss cable. the only thing I can't find is sports.....

LPT, I have an ATT bundle too (home phone and 3Mb internet connection). It's not too bad, except my modem cuts out every 20 minutes so it's impossible
I'm switching over to a Verizon hotspot though.. rechargeable and I can take it with me wherever I go. A bit more expensive but to me it's fully worth it.

Today i'm still at work, but managed a bit of computer time to check the forum.
The last 2 days we have been helping out, cleaning all the mining equipment ready for transport.
Nice change under normal circumstances, but i just heard it's around 50c.
No wonder i was hot and found an airconditioned office to cool down a bit.
i though it was around 43c, but feel worse knowing it's 50c.

Flying back to Perth on monday where it's nice and cool.
