Help Please: Internet & Phone Service Provider

Postby 2plus2 on Sun May 29, 2011 2:22 pm

Our monthly bill is $170+!!! DH typically looks after the bills but is out of work at the moment so I am taking them on. Blessing in disguise as we really need to talk more about our finances.... Am I crazy or is this absolutely ridiculous? (not a rhetorical question.. or, am I just that non-informed about the cost of these expenses?) If you don't mind sharing, I would really appreciate hearing from you how much you pay for these services, who you are with, what sort of package you have, etc. DH also has a cell phone: $80+ month.

Our "needs" are cell for him, long distance plan, internet... TV is a nice to have but I am sure there are alternatives with internet, net flicks... any suggestions?

Thanks for your help!

We are will Shaw for Phone, Internet and TV and the cost floats between $135-$160 depending on long distance calls (4 cents a minute) and if we order a movie to two.

We have two cells phones for $90

I right now got a deal with telus. Internet is 9.99 Phone is under 25 bucks and then I think it goes up VERY slightly forn there in 6 months and Satellite TV with PVR is 45 a month and goes up to 65 in 6 months.
I price compared to Shaw, and this is a better deal for sure.

I dont use a cell phone as they cost way too much!
