bahahaha We pay over $100 just for internet and we’re limited to 20 gigs of data per month. The joys of living in the country and having no land-based optio ns. It’s either cellular internet (our choice), satellite internet, or dial-up internet. No fiber, no cable.

I’m paying $150 for cable and internet. =/

We do have a lot of extra channels though.

$400/mo for our T1 line out in the country. (I need it for work, so at least it’s a tax writeoff.)

We recently got rid of cable and just kept our high-speed internet (from $180 to $90 a month).  We have Hulu Plus and stream everything else from my laptop to our t.v.  I have found every single program that I used to watch on cable, online.

I think we pay around $80 for cable and internet but that’s just for our first year. It’ll go up after that. We onlt got cable this year because hubby wanted to give it a go. Personally I don’t think we’ll be keeping it after the year because it’s a complete waste. I watched it a decent amount when I was off sick for 6 weeks but that’s mostly because I couldn’t do much. He has hardly watched it and spends a lot of time away for work. We watch more Netflix than cable!

I think we pay about $90 for cable and internet.  We have normal, medium speed internet and HD cable, but not a ton of channels.

@sheepandbear:  We pay $136/month for cable, internet, and a landline phone. We don’t even use the phone, so I called to see if we could cancel it and get our bill lowered. Well she told me if we cancelled the phone, our bill would INCREASE! It’s craziness. It goes up a dollar every month. We started out around $110, ugh.

@sheepandbear:  I have to pay $75 a month for 10mbps (which is the fastest they offer!) and for a modem rental. That’s only for internet, and I’ll be just streaming videos when I get a tv, no point in paying more money for cable. But I’m also working from a small town and using a local internet place.

What you said seems about right if you’re getting a decent service speed and more than a basic pacakge.

I pay $42 for high speed internet and $86 for cable, which includes HBO, sports package, DVR, etc. I really want to get rid of cable because everything I watch is on Netflix, but I couldn’t live without live sports! If I could stream live games all the time, then I’d get rid of cable in a second.

I think we pay close to $130/month for cable and internet, but it’s fios (fiber optics), so I know that’s a little more expensive

@kes18:  We were the same. Fiance wasn’t watching cable and I was watching useless stuff like marathon episodes of SYTTD and reruns of old shows. I don’t miss it, so I think it was a good choice.

We pay $115 for what’s supposed to be 30 mbps but it just tested at 20…I’m gonna have to call my internet company if it keeps testing low. grr. the $115 includes cable too. If we drop cable, we’d be paying $90/month for internet if we kept the same speed, $75 if we dropped to the lowest speed. I think it’s bullshit how much it costs.

Brighthouse is the only provider available to us for internet though. I KNOW we could have cheaper internet if we had options =/
