DirectTV: $120.00 per month
Phone & Internet: $70.00 per month for local phone only and 1.5 meg internet speed.
That was a total of $190.00 per month
Cable, Pone & Internet bundle with 3 meg internet speed: $140.00 per month
Saving $50 per month, still have all the channels we watch (did lose some channels but none we actually watch. Only downside is a few of the channels we use to have in HD are now standard deff.), now have like 2 hours free long distance (but we really don't use the home phone since we have cell phones), and with double the internet speed playing games on line or streaming though Netflix is smooth as can be. On top of this I no longer worry about losing signal every time it comes more than a shower. And on top of all this, I can even watch replays of our hometown HS football games... all while saving $50 per month.
Outside of the elderly like vader here who really needs home phones anymore? I really think eventually the won't be offered anymore.
