Should I go with Uverse for cable and Charter for internet? Or is AT&T internet DSL not too bad?


Also... I'm a recent college graduate and new to this. What exactly is kwh? kilowatts per hour? What does that mean specifically if its like 10.9?


Any advice or tips on these would be much appreciated! Thanks

If you can get Uverse you might be able to get the FIOS (fiber) connection. If you can, it's much faster than DSL.

Personally, I despised the uVerse service (mostly because I despise television programming), so I ordered Uverse to get the Fios internet connection and then cancelled the TV services.

KWH is killowat hours--electrical use/billing that your electric bill is based on and you pay per KWH for usage--so the lower the amount like .09 vs .11 the lower your bill for the same KWH use..
of course there are taxes and if a company quotes you a very low KWH charge on your contract, they also have the right to boost the charge if they get caught paying more for the electricity they buy...
IF YOU ARE RENTING MAKE SURE YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR ELECTRICAL PROVIDER--THAT YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO BE BILLED BY YOUR APT--that is very expensive and you are forced to pay whatever the apt complex sets as your rate...
some apts are like that ...some are not...so make sure that you DO have freedom of choice and call a couple of electric providers to see if they can indeed be provider at that complex....

if you are renting you probably can't get UVerse--your apt complex will be doing business with a cable provider and most apts are too old and it would be too expensive to rewire for UVerse

ATT is available in certain areas and Verizon is available in certain areas--not both in the same...
just like conventional cable companies--they have monopoly contracts with cities to provide service--
