Cable Television (AT&T U-verse)

My general thoughts about cable go like this:

It costs far too much for the amount of TV I actually watch. That would be about 0 to 2 hours per week (about the cost of going to a movie every week when you divide it up).

So anyway, you know what happened today? We got cable.

Here’s why:

AT&T offers a package that’s a combination of internet/voice over ip/cable and can include cell phones. We had all but the cable through AT&T already. Here’s the thing though… With the standard prices for U-verse, the cost drops by about $40 for us and the cable comes for free for the first month. After that, I can cancel the cable and keep the rest of the package. Alternately I can drop down to a more affordable cable (they give you top of the line for the first month) and end up paying roughly the same as I do now.

We’ll see what happens.

  1. So far it’s great. We’d had their pro package (1.5 to 3.0 Mbps down, 384 to 512 Kbps up) and moved up to their next highest (3-6 MB down, 500kbs to 1 Mbps up) and so far we’ve been getting near the higher end of that speed.

    It’s been reliable so far, but we’ve only had the fiber optic version for a day…
