Default Cable/Internet

I am moving to the Lexington area next week. I will be moving to the Farming Creek Subdivision and I am looking for the best deal and value for my cable and internet. Currently, I have internet only through time warner and I just got them to come down on my rate for 20mbs of service. I am willing to reduce my mbs if it means getting a better rate since I won't be streaming as much anymore.

I spoke to Windstream over the phone and they put together a package deal but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with going into their store in the target shopping center and getting an even better rate.

PS, unfortunately, U-Verse is unavailable at my locaiton.

Look forward to your suggestions!

I've heard awesome reviews of U-Verse. TWC sucks, but until Uverse get's in my area it's probably my only choice. I don't really trust Dish, and their contracts. TWC can get pricey, and their customer service sucks something fierce.

Yeah, U-Verse is the way to go if you can get it but I've basically been told that I should not expect U-Verse for a long time in my new neighborhood.

Bottom line is they all suck.

I have U-verse and the service itself is pretty good. But Customer Service is a nightmare like all the other telecom / cable providers.

I live off of a smaller highway in Westminster. My road turns off and pretty much semi-circles back onto the highway farther into the mountain area. That end of the road that is farther from town has uverse however my end does not. Why would it be this way? Does uverse hate me?

I used to have Uverse when I lived in West Columbia. Moved to Lex and am with Dish. It's the best choice for me

If you look at DSLReports you'll see plenty of unhappy SC Windstream customers.

If you can't get Uverse then you pretty much have three viable options IMO:

1. Go with DTV for TV and TWC for internet.
2. Go with DISH for TV and TWC for internet.
3. Go with TWC for both TV and internet.

Default Re: Cable/Internet

Why do you guys have it split so it's one company for TV and another for internet?

It seems like it would be cheaper to bundle.

We currently have DirecTV and live in Lexington but closer to Gilbert. U-Verse is of course not an option unfortunately. We have Windstream for phone and internet as well. Apparently they bundle with Dish. We're also thinking of signing on with TWC....apparently they're out of our range but they have cables that they didn't know about right in the backyard.

It's kind of coin flip really...I'd suggest just switching between the two satellite companies every two years to save the most $.

Default Re: Cable/Internet

For me in Irmo, TWC bundling is not as cheap as splitting tv and internet. I have TWC internet and Direct tv. With the package I have, I save about 40 dollars each month. A few years ago, TWC gave me a cheaper deal that they promise to lock in for a year. Three mouths later they up my bill. When I called to complain, they said that they could not honor the price they gave me earlier. I cancelled tv service and went with Direct. If I had another option on internet, I would have totally left TWC .
