Hello!

I'll be moving to Lexington in a month and was hoping to hook up cable internet. Is it offered there? And by whom?

I did see a couple of companies (I think "Insight" was one?) that offered DSL, but I'm really hoping for cable because I don't want to have to bother with a landline phone just to get the DSL. Help!


Edit: whoops, now I see that Insight DOES offer cable internet? Honestly, I didn't see that the first time I looked. Is Insight a good company? I notice they charge $40 bucks a month for speeds up to 10 megabytes per second. Gee...I'm being charged $45 bucks a month in my state, for up to 7 megabytes per second.

Insight is a cable internet provider. I am not sure whether there are others in the Lexington area. They do a good job on the internet; I've been less impressed with their TV and landline services though.

Insight is cable. Windstream is telephone/dsl. I much prefer Windstream, great service and it's always fast.

We use Insight for cable, telephone and broad band. We've never had a problem with any of the services and it's handy having one bill for all three.

Default Cable/Internet/Phone

Where we are now (fl) we have Time Warner for all three, comes to about $150.00 a month. I never heard of these companies your referring to, any others?

Insight is THE BEST. I had Directv for awhile, and I thought It was okay - then I got Insight and WOW! Never have a problem with their cable or internet. I'm not sure about their phone services.

Insight is what we used to have - they did a great job with the cable modem, but the phone service was a little flaky. Cable tv was fine - I personally like directv's interface (especially the dvr) and programming better, but nothing to complain about with insight. I did like their insight on demand feature with the digital cable box.

For some reason I just assumed that windstream was also cable...I am out of the loop!

That's where I live now and use them as well. I only have their cable internet service, which is about $44.95/month. They've been fine and I've had no problems with them.

The thing that bugs me most about DSL is that you have to have a landline to support it. Granted, landline plans are very cheap nowadays, but "dry DSL" isn't moving as fast as the companies say it will.

But to those loyal to DSL, I did have it for awhile and was very pleased with it when I did.

DSL is much cheaper and it's fast all the time. Is cable faster or something because I couldn't imagine paying $44.95 a month for the internet.
