There is no reason for anyone in the US to have less than 15Mbps...that should be the bottom of the basket in terms of options in my opinion. These companies are milking people like cattle until they shrivel up and have nothing left. >_<
North Las Vegas.

We stopped in at walmart to buy hats & gloves and ran into a Cox kiosk so we are getting that for ISP. HughesNet had way too many rip-off reports. Cox is $48 per mo & no installation fee, no deposit, no contract & a 30 day free trial. Best part: can install tomorrow.

Just make sure your plan is a set $48 from here on in and not just for the next 6 months.

If it is an "introductory plan" be sure to mark on the calender when it expires and goes to a higher rate. Then call up a couple of days before the "introductory plan" expires and tell them that you are going to cancel. They will likely have another "special rate" for you at that time.

Looking at the Cox offer looks like it is only $48 for 3 months then goes up to over $62 a month after that.

The rate is locked in for 12 months. After that the rep says it will increase about $10.. I will put an alert in my iCal to call a month before expiration. I do like the no contract feature. HughesNet wanted a 12 month contract & a ridiculous amount of money. We will reevaluate Cox when it comes near the 12 months. I also liked the fact that the Cox rep didn't have a long-winded promotional spiel; just the facts

Sat is a joke, hands down. I never even heard of HughesNet. It's probably another one of those companies that keep changing their name in order to hide from bad reviews/rep.

As much as I hate to say it, Cox is the best option at the moment. I really hope Centurylink comes through with it's promise to install and provide gigabit internet packages and compete against Cox all over Vegas.

Don't forget OTA. I won't ever say that enough. You don't need to get a paid package unless are a major fan of any sport outside of football, you just HAVE to watch a few channels only available on cable or just really need to have the movie channels instead of netflix o_O lol.

I get the following channels OTA for free: http://www.city-data.com/forum/28353375-post51.html

So what works best is make a list of the channels you can't live without, then subtract the ones that appear in my list and whatever is left is what you are paying for. So if 3-4 channels are left, then you are paying TONS of money just to be able to get 3-4 channels....plus dozens or hundreds of other channels you could care less about.

Until they offer TRUE ala cart channel choices that are affordable and sensible, I will forever be an advocate of free OTA TV

News by press release. No meat. No locations. Still appears a promotion with no substance.

Ya, I don't see it on their website. When it is shown as a select-able option and the price is right, I'm there!
