Hi all, I did a search of this but really only found this thread.

Any thoughts on ISPs in New Orleans?

I'm guessing it is Cox vs AT&T?

How about Cable/TV? Any good deals out there? I'm just looking for basic. I found Cox, DirectTV, AT&T, etc. Yay or nay on any of these?

Thanks in advance!!

IMO, go with a Cox bundle. Direct-TV loses signals during rain storms.

Yeah I checked out the Cox ones vs the At&T ones. Seem pretty similar all in all.

I live outside of New Orleans, so I don't have the Cox option, but here it's cheaper to go with AT&T. DirecTV is a good deal. We don't really get problems with losing signal much, but it really depends on how strong your signal is, etc. Honestly either of the companies you listed are fine. I just wouldn't recommend Comcast is all.

AT&T is bringing U-Verse into the area soon if they already haven't. I don't know if that will make a difference or not.

I can honestly say that I've never heard of U-Verse. I'm guessing it's a high speed internet?

.

AT&T U-Verse - Advanced TV

Think of Cox service, only from AT&T.

I'ts been in larger markets for a year or two now. Channel 4 did a story about them bringing it to NOLA late last year and how Cox and Charter unsuccessfully tried to lobby St Tammany, Jefferson, and Orleans against it. At the time they were still working out an agreement with Orleans, but Jefferson and the Northshore were supposedly set to go.
