So I'm stuck with Century Link here in my apartment since that's who the building is wired for, and quite frankly - I hate them. Everything about them. I have my internet through Century link and that is bundled with DirecTV (I pay Century Link for both on the same bill). I'm now paying $115 a month for CRAPPY 7 Mbps internet (second crappiest they have) and the crappiest TV package DirecTV offers. What a complete joke. Oh, and I'm halfway through a 2 year contract. Yuck. I'm going to call them today and see what they can do because this is a rip off and they are throttling my internet too which is bogus. If I can't work a resolution to get better service for less, what are my options? *I need to keep internet service through them though* I'm thinking these are a few of many: 1) Keep internet, get faster internet (maybe 20 megs?), dump the DirecTV altogether and pay the fee (not sure if I can drop half of the services in my contract though, might have to drop the whole shebang and start new). Get a rabbit ears antennae to get free TV channels. 2) Same as above, but add Hulu subscription? 3) Keep same internet, dump DirecTV, get Hulu and/or rabbit ears but probably get throttled (hell they'll probably throttle me on 50 meg internet) I really don't care about TV to be honest but it would be nice to have. A few shows are good to watch and CNN is nice, but not necessary. I think Century Link is going to really ream me if I want just plain old internet without all that bundle garbage, when I signed up my god did they push home phone like it was 1984. I don't know I just need internet, and am looking for TV options/alternatives? I have an Apple TV but not sure what the best non-cable alternative is. The cable TV business model needs to die a rotten death.
