So sounds like cox is the best for internet and dishnetwork for tv. maybe I will get that or just get everything cox
The whole valley gets Cox (fiber network, they dug up half of LV to put it in) and dish is all over the valley too. (Slower for internet, though)

I got Cox for internet and had to buy my own router. Something the Rep didn't tell me when I signed up.

I have 10 toes...it really pisses me off >_< .....oh wait...wrong rant topic, I pay $73.99 for internet...I was paying more around 60-62 a year ago....Cox is having a blast MILKING it. Century needs to hurry else we will forever be victims of the system :/

When/IF Century does release 1Gb account access across the valley, and the price is right..either 1) Everyone is going to switch over, or 2) Cox is going to release a MASSIVE upgrade and try to compete price-wise, giving some of us a reason to stay. I just see a LOT of talk coming from them but no signs of actual experience/reviews from customers or options available on their site....just talk.

There will be no price competition. Cox's high-speed system will cost EXACTLY what Century's system costs.

Your local internet provider: "You won't like it, and there isn't another choice."

few days ago I went to see some houses in DR horton solamar cove (centennial hills), saw a centurylink truck and the guy said they have 1G in that area, asked him how much but he doesn't know.

OTA how's the video quality vs cable/dish? 1080p OTA? do you lose signal when it's very windy, heavy rain etc. who do I call to install the antenna on the roof?

1080P for OTA isn't bad at all. 100% comparable as long as the channel is coming in. What I use is an amplified antenna and you could always re-amplify it using an in-line amplifier if it's just a few channels that kind of come in but sometimes don't. Install it as high as possible, given I never recommend an antenna being the "highest point" of your house do to obvious reasons. You shouldn't have to hire anyone to do it for you as long as you have a ladder and a plan (plan = where the coax will feed and at what point in the line you want to include the amplifier, preferably inside. You would make a trip to Radio Shack or Frys to pick up additional Coax cable and maybe some coax barrels (small little coupler than connects two pieces of coax to extend it). Then make sure the coax coming from it is going into your house's "main" feed so it can be spread out to all TV's in the house. This is usually found by tracing down where the cable line leading to the house is plugged into.
