I have Time Warner for internet only. It was the only option available when it was installed.
I do not have cable TV.
I use Vonage for my home/landline phone. I like Vonage because I can call long distance overseas unlimited to several countries where I have relatives or friends.

Comcast is a local provider for all three, but I only have cable through them and their customer service is horrible. Their message boards are full of comments from disatisfied/frustrated customers. I think their cable service has a decent selection, but the prices are too high for the value I perceive.

Century Link provides home phone and internet then partners with Direct TV for satellite service.

I have Comcast and Surewest in my area. Honestly, I don't have any use for cable and local phone line. All I really need is internet. I use a tv antenna, Redbox and Netflix for entertainment. And a cellphone for all my calls.

Honestly, I don't know why people have so much complaints against these companies. I just don't get it? The only issue I ever had with them are the prices. So to combat that issue, I jump back and forth and get the new customer deals.

Same here, pretty much.

I pay about $40 a month for AT&T for internet, and $35 monthly for unlimited minutes, data and texting for 4G cell phone/mobile device with Metro PCS. For international calls I use a phone card, a $10 card gets me about 600 minutes to family in Europe.

I have no use for a land line or cable/satellite TV.

So $75 a month for all of my technology. Worth every penny considering I'm a heavy user!

I have cable and internet through Comcast. They offer phone service but I don't have it from them. We also have FIOS as an option but I've been so happy with Comcast Internet for over 15 years that I didn't see a reason to fix something that wasn't broke.
