I'm currently in Orange County, CA and toying with the idea of a potential move. I'm looking at the 78258 area, if that makes a difference. I just wanted to get an idea of what I'd be looking at as far as cable/internet costs. I don't need a ton of channels, I only have about 100 right now (I only watch about 5 haha) and I have fast internet, but not the fastest one available. Just wondering what a midrange cable/internet deal costs in San Antonio! I wouldn't need a phone line, because I run my iPhone on pay as you go. (and yes, I have checked the cable website that services that zip code, but I'm not sure if those prices are actually reflective of what people pay or if they're special deals or something)

Whatever it is, it's too much.

It really all depends on how fast you want to go. DSL is pretty cheap compared to Cable, but you get what you pay for. I have DSL with AT&T and pay about $45 a month for 3Mbps. But, I've started to hear from other people who have AT&T that they're starting to have issues with their connections.

We only have internet service as we get all our tv from streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime); we cut the cable cord about 5 years ago. We currently pay $40 a month (iirc) for Time Warner's Road Runner Turbo, it's advertised at 20 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up. I usually get about 15 mbps down though. I do think the price we pay was a promotion though. Not sure of the regular price.

Since you do a lot of streaming, I just want to ask if Time Warner has placed a cap on the amount of data you can pull per month?

Not yet. I haven't heard of them doing that anytime soon in this area. Though it wouldn't surprise me if they did in the future.

Time Warner threatened to impose bandwidth caps on most of its markets back in 2009, but abandoned those plans without explanation. (In retrospect, it might have been because of Congress threatening behind the scenes to start regulating network neutrality.) There's a local thread discussing it here.

I also stream a lot of content on Time Warner and have not had a problem with limits or threatened limits.

The two largest San Antonio ISPs, AT&T and Time Warner, are both participants in the Six Strikes initiative that the ISP industry is rolling out later this year, so if you do P2P downloads, you might have a problem retaining service.
