    BDN and my cousin yelled at me until I got us tv other than the 5 free channels so we did. Last week it was installed. After a week of getting used to it and surfing channels, they noticed there were a few channels they wanted but we didn't have, so I called them yesterday. Basically I went with the "cheap" package 15d/3u internet, 220 channels of tv & a phone line.

    Calling them yesterday and having them add the four channels we all wanted, it bumped me up to the next level which increased my internet speeds.

    25 up / 3 down.

    Sweet. :D

    How much are you guys paying? Mine is $55/mo just for internet. The host(Greenlight) for the test is actually pretty fast and cheap(Fiber optic). From what I've heard, similar download as what I have but much faster upload(I think it was like 10/10), for about $40/mo.

    The whole package is around 150 or so (premium tv package, phone, internet & three receiver boxes), so between the three of us I'd expect it to be around 50-55 after taxes and yada per month.

    I've had this internet service for almost 3 years now, and it'd been 15 down/3 up until yesterday.

    Going off speedtest.net, it didn't even get me to my old package at 15mb. lol

    Wow... A 208 dollar cell phone bill. lol

    Nothing like having two payments at once Dec-Jan, Jan-Feb, plus the activation fees and crap. :(

    I only paid half that shit as its not due till the 23rd anyway.
