Do You Pay for a Cable/Phone/Internet Bundle?

Even though I previously got rid of a landline, I let one sneak back into my life when I wanted to upgrade my Internet service, and the best deal in town happens to be bundles. Combining cable with voice and Internet yielded the best deals, and I'm not alone; a survey shows that customers prefer subscribing to bundles offered by phone companies, rather than cable companies.

Around here, no phone companies offer bundles like the cable company does, so that's not an option for me, but I think it's interesting that so many people are going for bundles, rather than cherry-picking each service. I do it for the price and supreme convenience, even though I now receive a service (voice) that I don't care that much about.

What about you? Do you subscribe to some kind of a bundle of cable, phone, and Internet service?

I also have a bundled internet and cable service from AT&T U-Verse. Very happy with it.

We get the bundle (phone+internet+cable). I tried to get them separately, but they get too expensive. I wish I could get rid of the phone, but it includes an intl. plan that's very reasonable.

I have it all bundled. Right now I'm paying $190 a month for all three. Separately, I was paying about $230. I get the bundle discounts plus a $25 discount for having all 3. That said, should FiOS ever get out by me, I just may be switching.

i'm totally stealing my cable from comcast and my wireless from an unsecured neighbor. for now, it seems to work. i save $100 a month and am pretty happy. but i can't use tivo so eventually i'll buy a bundle deal but i only want internet and cable. no landline for me. what a waste of money!!!!

I used to get my cell, phone, internet and cable thru AT&T U-Verse. Now I get my home phone and internet tru AT&T, cells thru T-Mobile, and we Hulu. Cutting the cable was a bit painful but that's money that can now go into savings.

I don't want Comcast to control more of my life than absolutely necessary, nor do I want my cable and Internet to potentially be out at the same time (barring some kind of huge natural disaster).

I have my cell phone and internet through Verizon but everything else is separate.

We had things bundled but our bill to us still seemed outrageous and the service lacking. So we got rid of the cable and phone and just kept the internet. We have cut that bill to less than half of what we were paying.

I pay for all three, even though I *never* use the home phone. I'm saving something like $30 bucks though, by having the phone/internet/cable bundle. They should offer services a la carte. I have no need for the 20 sport channels that come with my cable package!!!

Yes, but I don't know how much I'm saving. I wish I didn't need the cable for my husband....

I bundle my internet and cable, but my phone is separate.

Nope, I just pay for internet and cable. If they have a bundle including those 2, I'd get that, but everything includes phone and there's no reason for my husband and I to pay for something we don't need.
Jmartens Jmartens 8 years
No because I don't need a home phone. They wont give bundle pricing unless you get all 3.

No cable, no phone. Only interwebs. And NetFlix. :)

right now we're not paying for anything but getting cable and internet through our rental agreement. Not too shabby.

Well, no phone, but I've got a bundled internet and cable service from AT&T U-Verse. Far cheaper than going through TimeWarner or paying separately.
