Hi all,

Is it true that we can't get Verizon Fios in Hurst/Euless/Bedford? If that is the case, can someone recommend a decently affordable television and high speed Internet provider? I'm in Bedford and currently use Time Warner, but am trying to save a few bucks.

Thanks!
Janna

What do you pay for Time Warner?

I have FIOS in Grapevine and I would not recommend it as an affordable option. The rates seem, uh, fairly outrageous to me.

Thanks for the response.

Outrageous prices, eh? That's no good. I guess that whole "$79.99 a month" ad I saw was a crock.

Right now we pay about $130 a month for digital cable (no premium channels) and "high-speed" Internet. (I use the quotes because I don't think it's very fast at all; we get download speeds of anywhere from 1k - 900k a second, but usually around 150k - 300k.)

How much do you pay for Fios?

Janna

Verizon and ATT have divided the territory in Texas--they don't compete with each other in same towns that I know of
so if ATT is there already, FIOS/Verizon won't be...

sales pitches for low prices often don't include anything but basic services--when you add channel upgrades and faster speeds then you see your $$$ go up too...
if you want to save on cable I think satellite provider might be the cheaper route--but I don't have one--just what I have gleaned from reading what other people post
but then you still have Internet to deal with

we have U-verse in Hurst and my son has it in Bedford but we have multiple receiver boxes and the premium load--and one of the faster Internet lines
so our bills are not cheap...
