We are moving to the Keller/Grapevine area on sept 30 and was wondering who the cable and fast access internet providers are in this area??

Right now we use Bellsouth Fast access in Florida and also Comcast for cable. Who are the good providers there?

Thanks!!

AT&T/SBC in most of the area. There is also Warner Cable in some places. We have DSL through AT&T and haven't had any problems at all. A LOT of people here have DirectTV, but beware that during some storms the satellite does go down for a few minutes which wasn't a problem as I was able to log into a local tv station and watch their live storm coverage for any hazards.

Most of Grapevine is in the Verizon service area; only a fractional piece in Southern Grapevine (generally South of Hall-Johnson Road) is AT&T. In that part of Gpv, residents are in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford phone exchange, even though their physical address is Gpv. Verizon offers fibre-optic connectivity for cable, internet, phone service. I have no idea how it stacks up against other services, though. There have been articles locally that simultaneously tout it as being the "latest greatest" but also the install-from-Hades nightmare. Comcast was bought out by TimeWarner Cable, so if you want traditional cable service, that's it. Their internet is RoadRunner. I have it; I'd give it an "okay" rating. Not excellent, not even great, but I can't get DSL so no other choices for me. My personal experience with RR so far is that, as long as you don't need customer service, it's good. Their customer service/technical support dept. will have you banging your head on your desk in frustration, guaranteed.

Hopefully, someone else can explain the intricacies of the Keller options.

We live in Hurst, just southeast of Keller and our options are AT&T, Charter (for cable). We have AT&T U-verse, which is an all-inclusive package for DSL Internet, Television (lots of channels), and soon, phone service. We've only had uverse for about 1 month, thus far, I'm pretty impressed with the service.

We've had the Verizon fiber-optic service for a year and we LOVE IT!! TV never goes out or even loses picture quality, and internet is lightning-fast. This is a HUGE improvement over Time-Warner, which we had before! There's a Verizon Experience store in the Southlake Towne Center where you can go sign up for service or view their offerings.

Get Verizon Fios if available where you will live. It is extremely fast and reliable.

I have had Verizon Fios for a couple of years now and love it. I don't have their TV because I love DirecTV (big Steelers fan and have to have NFL Sunday ticket). I have never had any problems with their service. I get about 13 MPS actual upload speed, and I pay $52 total. The FIOS TV is great from what some of my friends have told me, so you can't go wrong there. They can combine either regular land line phone or VOIP in a package.
