Bye-Bye Bright House Cable

Hello AT&T U-Verse!! We are ditching or cable and switching to AT&T U-Verse digital for our phone, internet and TV.  I have been looking for ways to reduce some of our monthly bills without having to totally give up the things we do enjoy.

Since I have AT&T for my home phone, I gave them a call to price check a bundle of home phone, internet, and TV.  To my surprise, They were able to save me quite a bit of money!

Initially, my home phone was 44.00 dollars ( I just cannot give up my house phone, it just makes me feel better to have one).  My cable bill with Bright House averages about 135.00 dollars.  It can be a little higher if movies are ordered. Combined, both bills average around 179.00 dollars a month.

AT&T has a plan that will cover my internet, home phone, and TV's (we have two) and it will cost me about 110.00 dollars a month for the first 6 months.  After that, it will go up about 25.00 dollars.  The first six months is a special.  Also, they are waiving the cost for installation which is about 149.00 dollars.

After this months phone and cable bill, I will be on AT&T's U-Verse plan and will save about 69.00 dollars for the first six months.  I will apply that difference to my debt (Credit Cards) to whittle down the balance.

This is something that I will be looking into very soon. Those expenses can really eat up a budget!

Good for you! I've often thought about getting rid of the home phone but like you I like having it. I have a package with Rogers - cable, internet & home phone for $170 which I guess isn't too bad. I also threaten now and again to get rid of cable TV - I watch it so seldom, but my daughter still uses it. Someday!

I have a phone/internet/cable tv package with Telstra Australia which costs me $199 per month. This is about as cheap as I could find it.

too funny .. we're switching to AT&T Uverse on November 1 and I can't wait. We're doing so b/c of poor internet connection with our current provider, so hoping this helps. We do have a great initial package. We've done w/o a home phone for 3 years now and it's been great. :-)
