1. Depends on where in Phoenix you live. I have APS (Arizona Public Service) but many others have SRP (Salt River Project). In Tucson, Tucson Electric and APS...but TE isn't in Phoenix.

2. I have Cox and have NEVER had a problem with them. I've lived in Texas and New Mexico before I moved to AZ so I actually think that Cox beats what El Paso, San Antonio, Las Cruces/Albuquerque had. CableOne just SUCKED!

3. Local transportation varies on performance. BUT the light rail, Express/Rapid Bus service, and the most used bus routes are amazing clean and very safe (even more so if you are familiar with services in other large cities)...

Hopes this helps.
