    I have a little dilema i need help with.
    Right now, our internet is bundled with our landline phone and TV. The TV service is $12 and the Internet and Phone are like $120 a month.

    I need some way to get rid of the phone line cause its outdated and costs a ton. however the internet can stay and i think the TV needs to stay too.
    heres the deal. i need a way to get internet and Tv without the huge freaking $120 price tag per month. Solutions?

    We use AT&T Uverse here. My dad said it was pretty cheap, and it is brought in on a Fiber Optic land line, and is put into our house on copper.

    You know... for the superior connection quality.

    The T.V. is awesome too.

    Also, they gave us a Wireless internet router with our package.

    I feel so sorry for americans and their internet (even more for belgians and australians).
    Here, I have 20mbit internet + unlimited phonecalls in the evening and weekend for just 25 a month..

    Sucks to be there.
    But srsly, aren't there some "not really illegal" ways to be really cheaper?

    Do what I do. Get Netflix and a top tier broadband solution. Know your way around Hulu and other video sites, and then you can cut out the cable. Get magicjack for most of your calls, and then a low rate calling plan for your cellphone. Use Google Voice on your cellphone to save more.
