Looking to get Internet and basic cable TV (no phone). It hard to tell how much Dish network and Direct TV really charge because they have teaser rates. Has anyone been with either of these satellite companies for a long time? How much do you pay per month?

Too much.

"Yet even though every analyst I spoke with said internet prices will keep rising for the immediate future, there’s reason for hope.

The big wild card in coming years is the rollout of 5G wireless networks — superfast service that could make high-speed cable and phone lines obsolete, especially in big cities.

This could allow the likes of AT&T, Verizon and Sprint — and maybe even Google, Facebook or Amazon — to offer wireless broadband internet that can compete with the speed and reliability of cable.

And that should be a real wake-up call for the cable industry. It’s been a long time since they’ve had to actually compete for your business."

142 per month for the Middle of the road package.

5 tv's hooked up.

Got 50 dollars off for one year because I called to say I am thinking of leaving them for streaming TV which is the truth.

I figure in 1 year streaming will be cheaper and better so leaving DTV is inevitable. I will say Directv is top notch service and picture quality, you will pay for it very much though.
