i'm looking for cheap internet, high speed, not bundled, no more than 19.99/mo.. everything i see are "offers" for limited promo times.....are there any small local companies in Vegas besides Cox, etc that provide a reasonable price for high speed without a lot of confusing promos ...just a straightforward "here's the price" and hook it up. I realize most require purchase of a modem.....thanks for the info..

If you find HSI here for $20 per month, please post and let us know all about it.

I haven't been able to find anything that reasonable.

If you actually mean high speed there is Cox or Cox.

Anything under $20 is less than high speed.

You can try Clear for around $25 a month. You'll have to buy their wireless modem, or one from someone else. I found the service and speed spotty. Cox offers an unbundled Internet service for $33 a month (their least expensive tier). It is far superior to Clear. Before that (late last year) I was on dial-up, for about seven dollars a month. This city could use a good dose of competition in this market. We could use a few companies like this one https://www.dslextreme.com/

The cheapest reasonable-speed internet available in Vegas is Cox's 13mbps down, 1mbps up, for $46/mo. There's nothing acceptable that's cheaper. The internet situation in Vegas totally blows (I looked into all the options a month ago when I moved in).

thanks for the info...I've been looking and looking and it does seem pretty limited. I found a bundled internet/phone plan on Century Link that's a promo for six months. I want to avoid paying for bells and whistles I don't need on landline service. I don't need super high speed net but decent speed. I was looking at Clear also...just trying to save a few bucks here and there as it does add up!

If you have a smartphone with android you can use it as a hot spot. But I agree, Cox has the best internet hands down.

I have an Evo. While the hotspot feature is nice in a pinch, it is NOT sufficient everyday internet.

I forget the exact speeds, but I looked into Century link and their speeds were pretty poor, despite their prices only being slightly cheaper than Cox. Not sure what bundle deals they offer, though.

In any event, in the interest of saving a few bucks, I decided to get a Roku box, and HuluPlus and Netflix subscriptions (~$8/mo each), and completely forgo traditional cable/satellite. No complaints yet, though it's only been a week. Total television fees of $16/mo instead of $50+ or $60+/mo. Gotta get decent internet for that, though - I'd say at least 5-6mbps downstream (advertised speed).

I use mine for pretty much everything except watching netflix, peer to peer or streaming anything uncompressed. But everything else is sufficient.
