I am moving on from Time Warner cable. The price has become way too expensive for me to keep the service. When I first signed up, I was only paying around $115 a month for both cable and internet. Keep in mind that this was about 7 years ago. My bill is now $147 a month. I haven't changed a single thing with my original plan. With each year the taxes and state rates kept climbing. The only reason I have kept Time Warner is because that was the only good option for cable and internet besides going to satellite and DSL (or keeping cable internet at an inflated price). My work had satellite TV and I knew the pains of bad weather. DSL speeds aren't too hot for my needs. Both were disregarded as options.
Surprisingly, AT&T had sales representatives going door to door in my neighborhood. They informed me that new fiber optic lines were installed in my neighborhood and they can offer TV and faster internet now. There is a promotion going on and I was able to sign up for service that gives me more channels, better DVR equipment, and a dedicated internet line for much less then I am paying now. Having a new daughter, I am looking for any way to save money. Getting more is just a pleasant bonus. You could say that I am the budget cable buyer. Coincidentally, NVIDIA has released the GTX 650Ti line aimed at the budget gamer looking to pay less, and get more.
