This will be my one and only post on here. I only found this forum today. It has been interesting reading. Thanks everyone.
We are currently paying $260 a month for TV, internet, and four cable boxes. That is close to $3,000 a year. That's a lot of money to me.
So, our data use doubled in March from our average of 300GB+, and then it tripled in May to hit the 1TB limit. So far this month we are over 500GB with no hardware or software changes that I can determine. We don't download movies, no Netflix, no streaming except for a little bit of uTube, we have a couple of X-Boxes that don't get a lot of use and are usually shut down cold, and the Pads and PC's are usually off except for occasional use. No Skype, no Facetime, nothing.
We have been Comcast customers on their top tier plan for 14 years. We have cancelled it. All of it. We have found another Internet provider with no data cap who's download speeds are quoted as being the same as what we actually get now, but it doesn't really matter as we don't download, and we only ever really watch Fox News and the odd movie on TV. We have signed up for the $12 a month N_flix plan for giggles and Gilligans Island.
All up we expect to save about $2,200 a year. I can lease a new Camry LE for less than that, and buy a WRX over ten years.
Bye dudes. It has been real.
