Hey guys,
My house search is finally OVER! I snagged a great place in James Island over by Sessionville and am moving down this weekend. I've lived in the same small town forever, and have always had the utility companies I know, but not sure where to start with moving to a new town and want to work on getting things set up tomorrow while I'm in town for work.

-Who generally offers the best TV (looking for pretty basic cable, never home, just want to be able to watch the Braves and Falcons) and internet?
-Power on JI in my area? I couldn't find information on the service provider. How do your bills generally look? I'm a single guy, 3 bed house, hardly home. I was hoping to keep this down.
-Water/Sewage as well. I couldn't find any good info on who my water supplier would be? How do you guys normally do here?

Thanks guys, can't wait to be permanent in the area next week!

Congrats on James Island! Here's your utilities providers:
Electric is SCE&G = 1.800.251.7234

Now it gets more complicated... if your house is in the city of Charleston, your water and sewer bills are combined with Charleston Water Service:
Water is CWS = 727.6800

If you're in the town of James Island or in an unincorporated section, your sewer is separate and you'll get a bill from James Island Public Service district:
Sewer is JIPSD = 795.9060

I really only use cable for internet service and I'm happy with Comcast. I think I'm in the minority on that score but you can search the forums for other opinions.
